Brewed In


What to expect:

Perfectly pitched pale ale

Judges Comments:

Baylands Brewery, based in Wellington’s food centric Petone on the shores of the harbour, started life further out of the city in Baylands Drive, Newlands, hence the name. They are also steeped in history, starting life as the third owners of an online home brew supply store that they bought off Liberty’s Joe Wood, who in turn bought it off Yeastie Boys’ Stu McKinlay. The brewery is starting to get a reputation outside the capital and it’s easy to see why. This new world pale ale has an almost perfect roundness to it. A rich malt base that’s not too sweet is undercut and threaded through with a pervasive bitterness that never overpowers nor distracts. A lovely long and dry finish demands another sip and you start the flavour cycle all over again.

Pairing Recommendation:

This beer is all about silky texture and generous flavour, so set against a hard cheese or crisp vegetable stir-fry.
