Twelve of the most exciting independent craft breweries in Australia are creating a custom beer using the hottest varieties from NZ Hops and Beer & Brewer readers will be able to get a special discount off the collaborative box where they will all feature.
Tomorrow we’ll be sending a one-off email to our readership that will contain a code to access a discount on NZ Hops’ and Carwyn Cellars’ NZ Hops Great Brew Challenge Box where the breweries are harnessing the Nelson Sauvin, Nectaron, Wai-iti, Moutere and Motueka varierties. If you haven’t already, sign up to our newsletter here.
This 100 per cent exclusive mixed 12 pack of beer goes on sale at 10am AEDT tomorrow and with Carwyn Cellars’ Canvent box selling out in nine hours this year they’re expecting this latest one to go just as fast.
Featuring 12 unique cans (330ml-500ml), the breweries were given free range to produce whatever style they like (under consultation with the team at Carwyn), however, with this being a competition to showcase hops, you can naturally expect a list chock full of several different hop-forward styles and a large proportion heavy hitting IPAs.
