Not only are Renaissance one of NZ first and best craft breweries, they have pulled out all stops to create an exclusive box of beers for Beer Hug that is unlike anything we’ve seen before. With 14 x 440ml beers (thats over 6L of beer), including 10 Hazy’s and an entirely new Unfiltered Hazy Series release this box is incredible.
Dating back to 2005, Renaissance, situated in Marlborough, are one of NZ’s oldest and most awarded craft breweries. Not only have they produced some of NZ’s best craft beers but also some of NZ’s best brewers. Headed up by Andy Deuchars today, they continue to push boundaries as you’re about to see.
Righto, let’s talk about the beer…..
Renaissance have created a brand-new Unfiltered Series just for Beer Hug. All the beers have relatively simple malt structure to allow the hops to shine and are fermented with kviek yeast. These beers are so NEW and so FRESH they haven’t even got labels sorted yet!
Included in this month’s Crazy Hazy celebration from Renaissance are the following 14 x 440ml;
2 x #1 Hazy East Coast IPA (5.6%) NEW
A classic East Coast IPA malt bill with loads of wheat and oats and just for good measure some lactose for a silky-smooth mouth feel. For the hops in this one they’ve used trial hops NZ102 and NZ107 which give of a big tropical fruit nose with hints of pineapple and candied fruit.
2 x #2 Hazy Pale Ale (5.2%) NEW
A classic pale ale malt bill and added oats and wheat with just a touch of crystal malt for a hint of sweetness. For the hops Andy has used Cashmere, El dorado and Strata which give a citrus and tropical nose with hints of passion fruit and strawberry.
2 x #3 Hazy IPA (6.0%) NEW
A simplified IPA malt bill with oats and wheat and a bit of lactose. For the hops Andy has used Zappa, Huel melon and Motueka which gives aromas of passion fruit and honey dew melon with hints of candied fruit and citrus lime.
2 x #4 Hazy IPA (5.8%) NEW
Here Andy has used the same malt bill as #1 but left out the lactose for a point of difference. For the hops he has used Moutere, Pacifica and Saltana which gives off aromas of pineapple and grapefruit with hints of citrus and candied fruit.
2 x Hazy IPA 15 Years Celebration (6.5%)
This big and juicy hazy IPA was brewed to celebrate 15 years of wonderful Renaissance beers. Fruity and delicious as you’d expect!
2 x Voyager IPA (6.0%)
Inspired by the boldly hoppy ales of old, Voyager IPA is a rich satisfying ale with an emphatic hop bite. Andy has generously hoped it, first with Kiwi hop varieties and then finish it with Fuggles for a spicy floral finish, resulting in an ale fit for an Emperor!
2 x Stonecutter Scotch Ale (7.0%)
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.
BUT WAIT.....our mates at Renaissance are also throwing in some branded merchandise into every 50th box......kind of like a super lucky dip!
