NEW BEER – Return of Hopocalypse

Thursday evening saw a quiet little beer launch at a place with no name on the door. Three of the Horsemen gathered for the 2014 release at Golden Dawn in Ponsonby.  A handful of the craft beer purists turned up to taste the new batch

Hallertau Brew Day The Four gathered again about a month ago to brew this rather large beer

2014-02-27 19.15.36 the beer turned out pretty nice from the new brewhouse. We only netted 900 litres from the 2400 litres in the kettle, guess a little too much late kettle and dry hopping.

 Joe really wanted to try it, as did Steve. They agree its hot. Yes I poured some into Steve’s hand as we didn’t have any corn chips or delivery mechanism.

Was a bummer the other horsemen could make it up from the Naki. We missed you Kelly. See you next time.
