Beer #212 - W/C 18 March 2019
BREWERY // Maiden's Owner and Brewer Adam Laird is a huge lover of all things Sci-Fi and he has carried this passion over into the look and feel of the amazing cans in his core Multiverse series. Adam founded Maiden Brewing, after successful stints brewing at ParrotDog and Baylands, with a specific focus on sour and mixed fermentation beers. With a barrel program and blendery in the works Adam has big plans for a future full of blending and aging to create one of the most exciting ranges of sour beer in the country. When Adam’s not brewing or on the road selling you sometimes catch him behind the bar at Wellington‘s Rogue and Vagabond.
BEER // Multiverse is a series of kettle soured beers with the same base showcasing different fruit additions. Lactobacillus (a lactic acid producing bacteria) is added after the mash and before boiling to 'kettle sour' the beer and give it a very refreshing bite. Adam has packed this Multiverse with tonnes of passionfruit to make it a perfect Summer quencher. Light and tart with a spritzy carbonation and passionfruit which blends beautifully into the base sour character to finish dry, keeping you coming back for another sip. Keep an eye out for the current Kiwifruit and Lime and upcoming Plum versions.
