Beer #380 - Laughing Bones / Lazy Bones

Beer #380 - W/C 23 May 2022

BREWERY // After 27 years of working in the high pressure corporate world, Minnesotan John Morawski found himself in New Zealand and decided it was time for a beer. Looking for a new career in a new country, he decided to follow his passion for craft beer. As he has a Master's Degree in Food Chemistry, starting a brewery seemed like a natural option. Laughing Bones was born in 2013 and they are committed to producing a wide range of  styles using the best ingredients they can get their hands on. You can pay John a visit at the Laughing Bones taproom in Silverdale.

BEER // Cream Ales aren’t all that popular in New Zealand but they were a very important part of American beer history, originating in pre-prohibition times to compete with mass market lagers. Generally cream ales are characterised by medium bitterness and low hop flavour- a bit like lager but tastier and with a bigger body and smooth mouthfeel. There are no big flavours to hide poor technique in a cream ale, if you aren't impressed- try brewing one yourself. Lazy Bones is a core favourite of Laughing Bones. It is an easygoing, creamy beer with light floral aroma, bready notes and a touch of spicy hops. A simple, honest beer that's perfect for summer.
