2016 Beervana Week

2016 Beervana Week

Posted by Luke Nicholas on

epic-beervana-2016-2 It's that time of year again, and we're pumped to get down to Wellington to share our latest brews as well as our tried and true favourites. We'll be at the House Of Nicholas stand with our cuzzies from Hop Federation.

What's pouring at Beervana?

Epic Thor Imperial IPA thor-tapbadge-embossed The last and biggest addition to the Stone Hammer Trilogy. The beer has a big hop aroma that is dank, resinous and fruity from the use of Nelson Sauvin and CTZ hops. The bitterness level is lower than regular Epic beers, which is also the same in the Thunder and Stone Hammer beers. Extremely well balanced, juicy and delicious. ABV: 8.8% IBU: 100 Epic Thunder APA thunder-embossed This American Pale Ale is the first of the Stone Hammer Series. Originally released as a keg only batch, but was so popular we had to make more.  It's packed with US grown Columbus, Chinook and Mosaic (a LOT of Mosaic) hops. The flavour is driven by the sub tropical fruits (including passionfruit & mango) from the Mosaic hops. There is a fun level of dankness. A massive hop flavour is matched to a subtle level of bitterness, which makes this really enjoyable. ABV: 5.8% IBU: 50 Epic Hop Zombie Double IPA tapbadge-hopzombie-transparent Does this beer really need an introduction? NEED... MORE... HOPS... ABV: 8.5% IBU: 100 Epic Armageddon IPA tapbadge-paleale-transparent-embossed Another beer that really needs no introduction... Our international award winning IPA is back to tantalise your tastebuds. The hops are here to party - and you're invited. We're always thriving to make this beer better which is why it keeps pulling in the awards. ABV: 6.66% IBU: 60

Epic Wellington Events

Thursday: Stone Hammer Trilogy tape takeover - The Rogue & Vagabond 13898708_10154419333187156_629827187_o (2) Come and see us and put the whole trilogy to the test - Thunder APA, Stone Hammer IPA & Thor IIPA. You could be in to win one of two prize packs just. You'll even get to meet the man behind the name; Our awesome Sales Manager - Sten THOR Søren Hansen. Saturday: Wellington Launch of Snow White Alpine Pale Ale - The Malthouse snow-white-tapbadge-transparent-embossed After your Saturday Session at Beervana (or your recovery from your Friday celebrations), head to The Malthouse and be one of the first to try our newest beer. What makes this beer different? We have brewed it with wheat malt for the pale hazy appearance. The noticeable orangey citrus character comes from the marriage of crushed coriander seeds and the Cascade and Centennial hops. The fruitiness comes from the really warm fermentation with a special ale yeast. There'll also be Thor IIPA and others on tap too. See you in Wellington!
