SPEIGHT'S DISTINCTION ALE

distinction

A premium traditional ale brewed in celebration of Speight's 120 year anniversary. Speight's Distinction Ale is a well rounded Ale, thanks to the specialty malts used. It has soft caramel and toffee flavours to start and finishes with a slight hop bite. This full flavoured ale is big enough to tackle full on red meat dishes, complimenting casseroles and steaks.

SPEIGHT'S 5 MALT OLD DARK

old dark

If you’re looking for a beer with a big creamy flavour you’ve come to the right place. By carefully selecting, roasting and matching 5 separate malts we have crafted a dark beer that gives rich, creamy, chocolate fudge flavours swiftly followed by coffee overtones. The addition of hops balance this chocolate and coffee sweetness with a parting dose of sharpness to ensure a well balanced dark-style beer.

SPEIGHT'S EMPIRE

empire ale

Speight’s Empire is a 5.5% ABV Indian Pale Ale brewed with Pale Ale Malt plus Caramalt and Roasted Malts for some extra caramelised maltiness and a deep amber colour. A generous addition of Kohatu hops is used late in the Kettle boil to produce fruity, spicy aromas and flavour with a smooth, clean bitterness.

SPEIGHT'S SUMMIT ULTRA

ULTRA SUMMIT

Summit Ultra is a refreshing golden lager with a crisp finish. Brewed for longer it has 75% less carbs than the average carb content of leading NZ beer brands. Making it the perfect way to wash down a hard workout with your mates. ALCOHOL BY VOLUME 4.2%.

EMERSON'S BOOKBINDER

Bookbinder min

A wonderfully drinkable interpretation of a classic English ale. Bookbinder is a blend of four malts combined with two classic Nelson grown European hops (Fuggles and Riwaka). The beer pours an attractive reddish brown, with a cream coloured head. Bookbinder has a sweet, perfumey, malt and hop aroma with a soft, malty, fruit and vinous palate that is both full flavoured and refreshing with a long, gently drying finish.

PANHEAD SUPER CHARGER

Bookbinder min

Hops are where it starts for the born-again craft head and Supercharger APA is where Panhead delivers. This is an all-American show with Centennial, Citra and Simcoe overwhelming your nose, kicking you in the taste buds and departing with more bitterness than a Palm Springs divorce. It's a seriously addictive combination.
