Savvy Sauvins

Get to know the gooseberry aromas and fruity tastiness of Sauvin beers

If you’ve ever heard a beer described as having a ‘crushed gooseberry aroma’ (honestly, who smells a gooseberry?), it’s likely the beer contained Nelson Sauvin hops. This unique hop variety has similar aromatics to the sauvignon blanc grape, and is a favourite ingredient among both Kiwi and international craft brewers. 

Try it in these beers…
