Moa already makes Harvest Moa, a cherry beer that Mr Scott said had been a big success.
The only problem was there was only 10 days to develop the blackcurrant beer, a process which normally took about a year, but he was still happy with the result so far.
“This is just a prototype. We can make it heaps better.”
The beer will be tinkered with for the Japanese expo, but it probably will not be available in New Zealand supermarkets for at least a year.
