What Can The Harvest Hope For? - NZ Pilsner - 5% 440ml Can

From the first sprouting of a seed in the pre-dawn light to the verdant bounty of garden laden with hop cones lit by the ruddy glow of the setting sun, the harvest strives. Barley stalks stretch and sway in the gentle breeze of a late spring afternoon and creeping tendrils of ambitious hop bines cling tight to strings as they reach greedily towards the light as the harvest hungers. Smaller than the eye can see, industrious yeast cells grow and replicate as they hunt out new sources of food and the harvest hopes. But what can the harvest hope for?

To create this NZ Pilsner, we went right to the source, collaborating with three incredible local ingredients producers to showcase the bounty of the NZ harvest.
Gladfield Pilsner Malt grown in the barley fields of Canterbury takes plump spring barley, lightly kilned for a clean, crisp body and pale straw colour.
From Nelson’s Freestlye Hops come our new season Motueka Hops. Hand selected by the team from early in the harvest when this New Zealand hop showcases a bright and verdant lime character.
Out of their Lab in Wellington Froth Yeast cultivated a large pitch of their Krisp lager yeast to ferment the beer to a crisp and bright finish after long and patient lagering.
The result is a crisp, refreshing, vibrant NZ Pilsner bursting with citrus aromas with a rounded malt character and a dry finish. It’s everything the harvest hopes for.

The Care Of The Reaper Man - NZ Pale Ale - 6% 440ml Can

From dusk till dawn, in the freezing cold and the blazing heat, the reaper man works tirelessly. In the fields of Canterbury the crops are coaxed from seed to sack, through malting floor and kiln to bring us the freshest, most characterful malt. In the towering hop gardens of Nelson, stringers work high in the air to provide fruitful pathways for the bines to climb, while on the ground the cones are rubbed and sniffed by experts to select harvest dates with care. In a meticulous Wellington lab, yeast wranglers strive to provide the optimum conditions for their yeast with applications of sugar and oxygen. If not for the care of the Reaper Man, there would be no harvest, and your glass would be empty, so raise it up in salute.

This NZ Pale Ale exists thanks to the care of dozens of people. From fields, gardens, kilns and vats our growers, pickers, fermenters, stringers, scientists and maltsters work hard to deliver the highest quality NZ ingredients.
Gladfield American Ale malt uses Autumn Barley, kilned for a clean, vibrant base, paired with Supernova, a malt made with lightly roasted winter barley to impart a nutty, toasted character and a hint of sweetness.
From Nelson’s Freestlye Hops come new season Motueka Hops. Carefully chosen from late in the harvest to bring out rich, tropical papaya character.
In a Wellington Lab, Froth have nurtured a culture of their Buddy ale yeast for a clean ferment leaving just enough residual sugar to provide a rounded smooth finish.
