Croucher Pale Ale part of ANZAC SpecTAPular in Sydney & Melbourne

'The Local Taphouse' pubs in Sydney & Melbourne are having a Kiwi vs Aussie beer-off on Sunday. 10 Aussie craft beers vs 10 Kiwi craft beers, with one being our own Croucher Pale Ale. Read more about the ANZAC SpecTAPular here. This is the first time Croucher beer has been served on-tap outside New Zealand, and will be followed up next month when Paul Croucher introduces our seasonal Belgian Strong Ale 'The Vicar's Vice' to our Australian neighbors in Melbourne at the Beer & Brewer festival.

Our latest seasonal beer was brewed a few days ago, it is a Black IPA (India Pale Ale). It has been brewed using fantastic malts and, for the first time, we have used American hops. But not just a mere sprinkling of American hops, shed loads!! This is the hoppiest beer we have made by a mile, and that's saying something.
