Craft Beers of the Month – July 2016
Each month we’ll bring you three of our favourite craft beers, and give you a little bit of info about why you should try them!
Profile: 2 – sessionable and thirst quenching.
Food matches: Aged ham and Havarti cheese or cheesecake with raspberries for the sweet tooth.
Tasting notes: A light sour beer that newcomers to sours will appreciate. Golden in colour, this beer
delivers soft sour notes along with grapefruit and hints of mango and tropical fruits. A lovely example
of an approachable Berliner Weisse.
Garage Project Hapi Daze
Profile: 5 – more complex than the Hippy Berliner, but still refreshing.
Food matches: Angus beef burger with pickled onions and beetroot.
Tasting notes: A quintessential Kiwi Pale Ale from the food folks at Garage Project. This Pacific Pale Ale
packs punch with flavour but not with alcohol, leaving a sensational session beer that oozes class.
A great way to introduce yourself or a mate to a good beer.
McLeod’s Great Migration IPA
Profile: 8 – complex flavours & aromas to savour.
Food matches: Big IPA’s need big flavoursome food. Try a nice creamy curry.
Tasting notes: From Waipu comes this cracking IPA. Fruit forward and well balanced with a malt backbone,
the bitterness doesn’t linger leaving a refreshing almost sessionable IPA (be careful though it is 6.8% ABV).
