9750 Townshend Sutton Hoo American Amber Ale

Townshend Sutton Hoo American Amber Ale

ABV

4.7%

Brewed In

Motueka

What to expect:

Nutty, biscuity malt, old-school bitterness

Judges Comments:

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.

Pairing Recommendation:

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.
