Our Chocka Riwaka is crammed full of the tastiest bits of the South Island, from its namesake in the north to the very southerrrn tip. We’ve used only New Zealand Hops Ltd RiwakaTM hops and a selection of malts all sourced from ‘the Mainland’ to brew this hop-forward pale ale with citrus aromas, toffee malts and a smooth amber base. It’s as South Island as scarfies, cribs and cheese rolls.
BREWER’S NOTES: A single hop Pale Ale using South Island Gladfield toffee, ale and roasted malts to show case the incredible citrus, grapefruit and Sauvin-like aromas of the RiwakaTM hop. The American Ale yeast further expresses fruity supporting notes to compliment this vibrant, hop-forward beer. With a good alcohol and malt weight this beer will capture your imagination.
FOOD MATCH: BBQ meats or Spicy Curries – Pale Ales are a great match for the smoky flavours of BBQ’d meats, but given our South Island Pale Ale is a rather hop-forward beer, it’s also a good match for spicy curries.
