The Beer Nut – Blog – Recent Visit to New Zealand

The Down Under fundamentals [part 1]

Back from my travels with much to report. After Singapore the rest of my time was spent in New Zealand. I was quite surprised that it has a wide and varied brewing culture very unlike its larger neighbour across the Tasman Sea. Small breweries abound, and the variety of product is impressive. I think I scratched the surface by trying seventy different beers, so it’ll take me a few posts to get through them all. This one is about the basics.

New Zealand certainly has no shortage of breweries. As well as several big players and a couple of brewpub chains there are innumerable small-to-middle-sized operations all making a surprisingly wide range of beers. In the time I was there I could only hope to get a taster of what was on offer from these breweries, and with several I only managed to try one of their beers. So before I moved on to the breweries I am most familiar with, this post is about the individual beers whose stablemates never reached me.

Where was I? Oh yes, small New Zealand breweries. “Small” covers a sizeable range, however, so I’ll try to do this with some sense of scale.

And so to the pub [part 4]

Right, that’s your lot from NZ. Long may its varied beer culture thrive.

  1. Man did that make me cringe. Good to know that Green Man Bitter is the most bitter beer in the country and that Speights Gold Medal Ale is a step away from the industrial side of things.
