Kererū were the original Upper Hutt – aka Brewtown – establishment and they make some of the most imaginative spiced, flavoured, sour and barrel-aged beers in New Zealand. This massive beer is a special treat. Warm with layers of raisins, chocolate, sherry and oaky tannins, it “walks a tightrope” said the judges. It perfectly balances amazing depth of flavour and spirit heat with a gentle drinkability that fills your senses but doesn’t overwhelm them. Best shared with a friend or two, it goes exceptionally well with food and can be stored for a decade – at least according to the “Best before 2029” advice on the label!
Huge and complex beer that can work its magic after dinner in the same way you'd drink a port. It can handle apple pie with vanilla ice cream as a dessert and will hang around to match with soft cheese and dried fruit.
