8 Wired – Saison Sauvin 7%
Saisons have been around for ages. Traditionally brewed by Belgian and French farmers to provide refreshment during harvest. These hardworking folk never imagined that centuries later their style of brewing would inspire brewers from all over the world. As all 8 Wired’s beers, this is a very modern (you might say new world) interpretation of this style. Based on tradition they have used a French Saison yeast, providing a plethora of funky, earthy, very “Belgian” flavours. From there they have upped the ante a fair bit by loading the kettle with punchy Nelson Sauvin hops. Unlike the original, this is not a beer meant to be drunk by the gallon. Moderation is the key for full enjoyment of all great beers.

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.
