Lagunitas lands in New Zealand

Lagunitas Brewing Company

From The Shout NZ

Kiwi fans of Lagunitas Brewing Company, the American brewery with a 25-year history of making danky, funky and creative craft brews, will now be able to pick up a 6-pack of America’s leading IPA.

Until now, Lagunitas IPA has been pouring on tap in select locations around New Zealand, but the craft icon will now be cold-shipping 12oz bottles that local beer aficionados can place in their shopping baskets.

Sean O’Donnell, marketing director at DB Breweries, says the news will be a big deal for a lot of Kiwi craft fans.

“Since first bringing Lagunitas to New Zealand a year ago on tap, we quickly realised how aligned some of our Kiwi tastes in beer are to the American favourites,” he says.

“Lagunitas flagship IPA is a well-rounded, highly drinkable beer with Caramel Malt barley providing a richness that mellows out the twang of the Cascade and Centennial hops. There’s a reason that it is America’s leading IPA, it’s really good!”
