After a rather successful, hectic and voice-losing few days at Craft Beer Rising we are mega excited to be listing a range of cracking brews from the New Zealand Craft Beer Collective – made up of Yeastie Boys, Renaissance Brewing, Tuatara, 8 Wired and Three Boys Brewing.
Being mostly Kiwis (with one rogue Aussie) here in the HonestBrew team, we’ve been keen to get our hands on some tasty brews from Aotearoa (the land of the long white cloud) for some time. It was upon hearing familiar ‘fush and chups’ accents making their way across the Craft Beer Rising hall, we knew this was our chance.
Not only does Kiwi-land boast some of the best hops in the world but it has some damn good brewers who are doing great things with said hops. The New Zealand Craft Beer Collective is made up of Wellington breweries Yeastie Boys and Tuatara Breweries, Renaissance Brewing from Blenheim, 8 Wired Brewing Co from Warkworth and Three Boys Brewery from Christchurch. In true Kiwi style the breweries have teamed up to bring some of their best brews to UK shores.
So who are these guys?
