We're delighted to be hosting an 8 Wired Brewing Co tap showcase on Thursday 19th October! 8W are a highly acclaimed brewery from New Zealand producing a broad range of impressive styles, from hop-centric, modern IPA's to complex sours and barrel aged beers. Their brewing style is focussed on new world Interpretations of old world styles.
The brewery was founded by husband and wife team Soren and Monique in Marlborough, NZ back in 2009. Since then they've gone from strength to strength and are now regarded as one of the foremost breweries in the Southern Hemisphere.
We're thrilled to be pouring these brilliant beers that are scarcely available in Scotland!
FLAT WHITE — COFFEE MILK STOUT [5.5%]
“Honourably named after New Zealand's national style of barista coffee. A title that has been wrestled away from freeze dried instant coffee and made our country one of the best coffee nations in the world. In our own humble opinion… Brewed with coffee, vanilla beans and lactose.”
TALL POPPY — INDIA RED ALE [7.0%]
“It's intense, with a sharp and fruity hoppiness backed by a complex, caramel-like malty structure. The best characteristics of an American style IPA collides with a rich Amber Ale and the result is a beer that is big yet refreshing, bold but balanced.”
HOPWIRED — FRESH HOPPED IPA [7.3%]
“Hopwired was one of the first, true new world IPAs made exclusively with unique NZ hops. Although there is plenty of malt sweetness, this beer is all about the hops. Punchy, aggressive, New Zealand hops that all add up to create wonderful, tropical flavours & aromas.”
SAISON SAUVIN — SAISON [7.0%]
“This is a very modern, you might say new world, interpretation of this style. Based on the tradition we have used a Farmhouse yeast, which provides a plethora of funky, earthy, very «Belgian» flavours. From there we have upped the ante a fair bit by doubling the amount of malt, and thereby the alcohol, and loaded the kettle with punchy Nelson Sauvin hops.”
