    Mata Wai-iti Waka NZ Pale Ale Review

    I met some of the team behind Mata beer at last year’s GABS Beer, Cider & Food Fest in Auckland, and was pleased to note that they were as lovely as the beers they make. So, it’s with much optimism that I’m going to bust open this bottle of Mata’s Wai-iti Waka New Zealand Pale […]

    Hallertau Copper Tart Red Ale Review

    I bought this bottle of Hallertau Copper Tart Red Ale to share with a mate, but I’m a really shitty friend, so I’m just going to drink it all myself and write about it… ABV: 4.2% IBU: 25 Blurb on the bottle: This’d surely be a miner’s delight.

Here’s hoping this beer is better than the team that inspired it. ABV: 4.3% Blurb on the […]

    Wigram Harvard Honey Ale Review

    So I’ve recently started a new job as digital content producer for the Blues rugby team, trying my darndest to make the team look good even when they’re not playing particularly well. Although we got the win against the Western Force, it wasn’t an overly convincing one – not like this beer that was waiting […]
