Events next week

Winey Beers - 6pm 9 November, Cult Wine, 13 Murphy St, Wellington. There has been an explosion of beers that use wine, grapes or must (unfermented juice) as the central ingredient so we thought what better way to celebrate our love of beer than through these hybrids that bring the worlds of wine and beer closer together.

The beers on show will come from NZ, USA and Europe. This is a chance to try some truly top flight and extremely rare beers.

New releases

Epic Danger Zone XPA (5.5%) - brewed to celebrate 15 years of beer at Pomeroy's Pub in Christchurch. Danger Zone is made with 100% US grown Pale Ale malt, and Amarillo and Mosaic hops and was inspired partly by our collaboration with Ava, the Beer Barroness Lady Danger. Extra pale in colour, a low level of bitterness, but big level of fruity hoppiness on the aroma and flavour. Great beer for summer drinking.

Sunshine Te Mex Mexican Lager (5%) - a crisp and aromatic lager, refreshing and quenching. It is a Mexican lager but made the New Zealand way with locally grown ingredients. The best two row pilsner barley for a light malt background, 20% Gisborne grown maize for a bigger mouthfeel and fullness, and Riwaka hops. Available at Sunshine's taproom from Thursday.

Fork Brewing Saisonic The Wedgehog 6.6% Juniper, Lime and Tonic Saison - This Saison is super-light and clean, brewed with house Saison yeast strain, along with juniper berry and fresh lime zest. Schweppes Tonic Water was used to give a tiny hint of bitterness and a bit of sweetness in the place of hops. IBU=0!
