Enjoy Beer

Have you ever thought your beer tasted more like a soft-drink than a real beer? Or have you ever questioned the motives behind some of the big companies that market “premium beer”? If so, there’s more bad news here

In more positive news: Geoff Griggs sums up the awards at Nelson’s NZ International Beer Awards. He’s been tasting his way, with six other judges, through 156 beers of varying styles (from the gold medal winning, working class, Bennett’s Black to the heady 26% Samuel Adam’s Utopias). Some great results from NZ brewers and an excellent new Trappist range to keep an eye out for.
