8 Wired – iStout 10.5%
Beware, this is a BIG beer. Brimming with luscious roasted coffee and chocolate malt flavours balanced by a brisk bitterness and bold freshness from the hops.
If you’re feeling politically incorrect try it with your favourite cigar, or a dram of your best single malt whisky. Or, if your tooth is sweeter, why not jump in at the deep end with the most decadent dessert of all; half a bottle in a glass with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream on top (beer geeks like us know it as the Imperial Stout Float). Or simply enjoy it on its own as a decadent dessert or night cap – the perfect winter warmer.

Brewed by 8 Wired
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.
