Beer #15 - Keystone Milk Stout / Townshend's

 Beer #15 - W/C 8 June 2015


Townshend's were named New Zealand's Champion Brewery 2014 by the Brewer's Guild of New Zealand. And with good reason. In the 10 years since Martin Townshend started his brewery, it has become unanimously respected as a source of excellent beer after excellent beer. Martin has eschewed trends and fancy marketing and stuck to crafting natural, honest beer the same way brewers have for centuries with the best possible ingredients. It helps that the brewery is situated in the heart on the NZ hop growing region and has access to water from an ancient aquifer.

Milk stouts are an extremely unfashionable beer. The style almost disappeared in the mid 20th Century and until the recent resurgence in popularity, the only connection drinkers might have of it would be a distant memory of their old British grandmother enjoying a small glass of Mackeson's Milk Stout. There is no actual milk in this beer but there is lactose- sugar derived from milk. This is an un-fermentable sugar meaning the brewing yeast does not convert it to alcohol and it retains its pleasing sweetness. Townshend's Keystone is a wonderful and modern take on the style- it has mild bitterness, big body, and a well balanced creamy, sweetness. Look out for chocolate, caramel and coffee flavours from the malt. Milk Stout was brewed by Martin Townshend's wife, Keri, at their brewery in Upper Moutere.

How’s it going, ig_un?

Don’t you wish you could be Instagram cool?

Have you ever wondered how to be an Instagram Influencer?

I want you to imagine that it’s Friday and you have just woken up from a sound sleep.

You pull out your phone.

Make your way to your page.

You‘re surprised at what you see: Over 738 likes on a single one of your pictures! There, you can see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures—over 738 on a single photo alone.

You put your super-duper soft slippers on and head to the kitchen for some tea. After putting on the kettle, you pull out your phone again.

Presto! Another 49 likes.

Here comes another one. This time it’s not a like but a message from one of your followers. They commend you on your success and let you know they absolutely love your content.

The kettle blows and you pour your tea. When you flip out your phone, there’s another message—this time from a young girl—thanking you for posting. She follows you religiously and your’e an inspiration.

While you sip your tea, you start typing up your response. But then your cell buzzes.

It’s another message coming in. You glance up at the clock—almost time for the gym. You will have to hit them up later.
Listen, ig_un, most people just aren’t in control of their life. Hell, they can’t even get themselves to eat a balanced brekky, much less hit the gym.

My job is to take people from Instagram nobody to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds foolish, but results don’t lie.)

Truth is, it is not the most difficult thing in the world to get more. For example, all the old pros use our website.

This is all great, but you have actually got to put in the work to make it happen. Actually, it’s not real work.
1. Click
2. Plug your Instagram username.
3. Your three most recent uploads are getting 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

Being a everyday name on that page will increase your growth 10x, easy. You know where the answer to fame is. Now reach for it. Are you ready?
