BREWER – Dave Kurth – Hot Water Brewing

I caught up with Dave Kurth and had a chat about some “beer stuff” over lunch. It was my first opportunity to try his new range of beers he is making at Hot Water Brewing.

2014-02-25 11.44.47-1 A nice range of beers in can. One of the few craft brewers canning. The super star of the range, and one of the best beers I have had this year is the Kauri Falls Pale Ale. Could be a contender as one of those beers that captures the “New Zealand beer style” Wonderful NZ hop character, without it being too aggressive, balanced with a solid malt base.

Dave is possibly one of the most under appreciated brewers in the country. I’m expecting that this new opportunity will really see him shine. If you get a chance you should head out and see him at Hot Water Brewing, you can stay the night as they have accommodation on site.

Here is a little background about Dave from NZ Craft Beer TV
