Townshend’s Brewery has released their hotly anticipated – Brewers Guild of New Zealand Trophy-winning beer – HM’s Black Strap Porter.

HM’s Black Strap is reputedly a sessionable 4.5% Brown Porter that displays lovely chocolate and coffee notes – and the judges praised it for its superb balance.

Known for his relentless pursuit of the perfect real ale, brewer and owner Martin Townshend took home not only a Best In Class trophy in the Cask Conditioned section but also a Silver Medal for Guppy’s Hammer in the class.

“The Awards were a nice validation of what I’ve been doing. To be judged against my peers by my peers and take home a Trophy and a Medal was a great showing,” says Martin.

HM’s Black Strap is available in bottles only, and in limited quantities, so be quick.
