Townshend Sutton Hoo American Amber Ale
What to expect:
Nutty, biscuity malt, old-school bitterness
Townshend is an iconic name in the New Zealand brewing scene with founder Martin Townshend’s one-man operation creating a series of classical beers that propelled him to the title of New Zealand’s champion brewery in 2014. Relocating the brewery from the bush-clad shed in Upper Moutere to a purpose built building behind the famous Toad Hall in Motueka has allowed the business to stretch its legs. No longer a one man operation and with sales growing rapidly their aspiration is for Townshend Brewery to become a house hold name and what better beer to propel them back onto the national stage than this hoppy American Amber Ale? Nutty, toasty, biscuity malts support a robust bitterness that sings old-school good.

The char of barbecued meat loves to the caramel and toasty flavors of this amber ale, while the rousing bitterness offsets the fats in burgers, ribs, steak or chops.
