Hoppiest Kereru Ever
Upper Hutt craft brewery Kereru Brewing Company has brewed their hoppiest pale ale to date. Alex Bartley-Nees has based the brew on one of his gold medal-winning home brews and added just about as much Nelson Sauvin andMotueka hops as could be added to the beer. Alex has even gone so far as to double dry-hop the beer by adding two separate lots of additional hops into the maturing beer to achieve as much hop character as possible. At 70+ IBUs this is a beer which is bursting with tropical fruit notes and aromatic resins.
The beer will be launched at Wellington bar The Malthouse for their 2015 West Coast IPA Challenge. Resonator IPA will be judged closely against a host of other big, bold, West Coast American style IPAs and the best beer will be awarded the Golden Gumboots. The competition is open to beers which have not been previously available in any commercial capacity. The competition looks to be stiff and all are welcome to attend the event on Courtney Place on Friday 17 July.
Resonator IPA is a well balanced and easy drinking ale with a higher strength of 6.5% ABV. Resonator will be available commercially from 20 July 2015 in 500ml bottles and kegs throughout New Zealand. For more details about the beer, please visit our web site at www.kererubrewing.co.nz
