8 Wired v Modern Times – Half Way to Whangarei – Saison 5.5%
A collaboration with Modern Times out of San Diego called Halfway to Whangarei. 8 Wired brewed a Grisette and fermented it in one of their foeders with a Modern Times house yeast strain of Brett. Halfway to Whangarei turned out as a light bodied, complex, fruity and slightly tart Grisette which is a farmhouse style of beer the coal miners used to drink.

8 Wired Brewing is inspired by the legendary Kiwi can-do mentality and fellow craft brewers who have dared to challenge the masses and show us all that beer is no longer “just beer”! No 8 Wire is a specific gauge of wire originally used for electric fencing. In New Zealand it’s use is much more widespread than that though, Kiwi’s have used it to fix just about anything, from cupboards to cars. Over the years it has become a symbol of the kiwi ingenuity, their ability to fix any problem no matter how limited the resources.
