Next week we will travel down to Christchurch to brew a special collaboration brew with The Twisted Hop. We are going to brew a special version of our Amber to honour the outgoing, beer loving British High Commissioner Vicki Treadell . We are going to brew a special Anglo/NZ version of Amber swapping out NZ Cascade and Pacifica hops for UK grown Admiral. Target and Northdown. Half of the batch will then be cask conditioned in traditional English casks and ½ will be filled into kegs. Expect to see at least one of the casks make it up to Wellington and hopefully a keg might pop up in Kapiti.
While I am down there I will also be running a beer and cheese tasting at the Twisted Hop pub The Woolston Hop. This will be the first opportunity for Cantabrians to taste some of the North End beers.
