Over the past decade, Auckland has been catching up fast in the craft beer stakes, with the launch of some impressive breweries. To help you celebrate Auckland anniversary weekend no matter where you are in the country, Toast has picked out some of the top beers from Auckland brewers…
Liberty Brewing Halo Pilsner
Hop-heads will rejoice at the strong hoppy scents of this zesty citrus pilsner shot through with tropical fruits and closing with a great hit of bitterness.
Funk Estate Sophisticuffs IPA
Keep it funky with a load of Kiwi hops and caramelly malt, fancied up with spicy grapefruit and bold citrus.
Deep Creek Undercurrent Pilsner
A crisp and classy brew, this pilsner has soft malts with an undercurrent of lemon zest, given a Kiwi slant with local hops.
Hallertau #2 Statesman Pale Ale
A cult Kiwi craft classic, this pale ale kicks of all floral, and rips into action with a dose of hops, honey and refreshing citrus.
Boundary Road Brewery The Chosen One Lager
Made to the discerning (picky) taste preferences of a thousand Kiwi beer drinkers, this classic lager is twisted with a blend of NZ hops and malts, giving biscuit flavours with a perfect bitter edge.
