Renaissance Lager is our celebration of our unique New Zealand flavour and tribute to the everyday Kiwi.
Low alcohol craft beer - How did we manage to get the big 'Renaissance flavour' into a small beer you ask? With a large percentage of specialty malts to add mouthfeel, then late hopped with a selection of kiwi varieties (Nelson Sauvin, Waimea, and Riwaka) for their tropical fruit and spice flavours.
Nine malts are blended to produce layers of caramel, toffee, liquorice, chocolate and roasty flavours, balanced by a tart, raisiny fruitiness that gives way to a lingering dry finish.
The explosion of passionfruit and citrus aromas - the signature of the Riwaka hop - leave no doubt you're in for more than mere refreshment with our Paradox. Initial biscuity malt sweetness is soon joined by those zingy hop notes, it’s flavour-packed, yet crisp and thirst-quenching.
This in turn creates a punchy IPA on the nose and palate and the crispness of a lager on the finish. Collision Course is jam packed with US grown Crystal, Calypso and Eureka as well as New Zealand grown Nelson Sauvin and Cascade.
APA is Refreshing, crisp and aromatic—a golden hoppy ale - 4.5% ABV 12x330ml
IPA is Malty, delicious and aromatic - British Classic - 6% ABV 12x330ml
