Discovery APA (Renaissance Brewing)

renaissance discoveryWe’ll bet you can remember your first glass of Sauvignon Blanc, all those racy, up-front fruit flavours and that bracing punch of acidity. Allow us to introduce the beer world’s equivalent from the home of the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc.

captain cookerFlagship of the Mussel Inn - brewed since 1995

Inspired by the first beer ever to be brewed in New Zealand, by Captain James Cook in 1773, the Mussel Inn version is a red brown all malt beer flavoured with the freshly picked tips of the Manuka tree and locally grown New Zealand organic hop varieties.

3 Berry Cider (Sprig & Fern)

Digital IPA (Yeastie Boys)

yeastie boys digital ipaBrewed initially for export to USA. A limited amount of kegs were released in NZ as Motueka Warrior (as a part of the annual Motueka/Yakima collaboration with Liberty Brewing). The beer was then brewed for NZ, Aus and Italy under the Digital IPA label.

Coconut Milk Stout (Three Boys)

three boysLast night I had a big black pint placed in front of me. It had notes of tawny port if you held it up to the light and a covering of latte coloured head. The smell off the top of the beer was that of coconut rough, tropical flowers, subtle char and cocoa. Hello, thinks I, I rather like this. And so I drank and those flavours, so evocative, came flooding through.

309 NZ Pale Ale (Deep Creek)

Made with Motueka, Nelson Sauvin and Cascade hops, Deep Creek 309 NZ Pale Ale is a perfect session beer for those long hot days… The tastes and smells that emanate from this ale remind us of the quintessential kiwi experience; travelling Highway 309 between Coromandel and Coroglen. Dominant floral and citrus notes accentuate this refreshing ale.

ABV: 5.0%

Voyager IPA (Renaissance Brewing)

renaissance voyagerOriginally brewed as a one off beer for use through a beer engine, Voyager is now being relaunched as a carbonated IPA on tap and in 500ml bottles.

Inspired by the boldly hoppy Ales of old that were exported from Britain to the furthest corners of her vast and glorious empire, Voyager I.P.A. is a rich satisfying Ale with an emphatic hop bite.

Pilsner (Emersons)

emersons pilsnerA ‘Kiwi Classic’, Pilsner is a showcase for Nelson grown Riwaka hops.

Its overt fruitiness begs comparison with Marlborough’s world-beating Sauvignon Blancs. 

Emerson’s Pilsner oozes citrus and passionfruit aromas and flavours. The beer’s palate shows a hint of early malt sweetness but develops a lengthy dry finish.  

ABV: 4.9%

Mustang Pale Ale (Wigram Brewing)

mustang pale aleMustang A.P.A is our hand-crafted Ale with intense hop bitterness, character and aroma derived from superb New Zealand Hops & Malt. Hop bitterness is typically in the range of 40-50 IBU. The rich copper colour is derived from imported speciality Ale Malts to give a beer with a colour of around 20- 25 EBC.
