Hazy Daze

Kiwis love a hazy - in fact it's arguably the fastest-growing category in the craft beer sector. Tuatara has created a brew that's ideal for hazy lovers

Tuatara Hazy Pale Ale, from the award-winning Paraparaumu-based craft brewer, is not Tuatara's first hazy, but it's certainly a winner.

Tuatara Hazy Pale Ale packs in all the aroma and flavour you'd normally expect from a hazy. It's a refreshing combination of mango and pineapple with a decent hit of citrus for good measure. Light-bodied with honeyed malt undertones, it's a perfect easy-drinking beer to share with friends.

Speaking of friends, the Tuatara Hazy Pale Ale pairs beautifully with fish, so invite a group of mates over and whip up a fresh fish burger The tropical fruit notes pair beautifully with pan-fried fresh snapper or firm white fish. Simply grill with salt, pepper and dill, and pop in a bun with some crisp lettuce, sliced tomatoes and gherkins, a dollop of garlic aioli. Finish with a squeeze of lemon to help pull the citrus notes from the beer. Add some thick cut fries, and you truly have a hazy feast.
