In the final instalment of our brewer Q&A series, we asked Soren Erikson, head brewer at 8 Wired Brewing Co., what he'd be drinking to beat the heat this summer
What are you most looking forward to about summer?
Fishing, barbecuing and camping. All the Kiwi favourite excuses to drink beer.
What style/styles do you see yourself drinking a lot of this summer?
Probably the same old sour and IPAs, and hybrids between the two. But surely some stouts and pale ales will sneak their way in there too.
It’s the hottest day of the year and you’ve just mown the lawns. What beer would you most hope to find in your fridge?
No matter what I’ve been doing prior, I always hope to open the fridge and find a spanking fresh Pliny the Elder. Unfortunately, that rarely happens…
