One of the best things about the rise of small-batch brewed beers is the return of the 'local' brewery. It's a great way to reflect the locale and lifestyle of a place. Here at McLeod's, keeping it small and 'local' goes hand-in-hand with quality and variety, a fact made evident in our nine-medal win (including four Gold) and Trophy for Best International Lager (for Longboarder Lager) at the 2017 Brewers' Guild of New Zealand Awards.
We're also chuffed that New Zealand's Society of Beer Advocates (SOBA) recently voted Paradise Pale Ale as Beer of the Year for 2017! It's a win that means heaps to our wee brewery family!
What does it all mean? From our core range to our barrel-aged and blended Smugglers Bay Collection, we make award-winning beer for every palate, every day. In this slice of heaven we call home, our fans are as diverse as our brews, so our beers are delicious and balanced whatever the style.
Here's to enjoying our beer in your little slice of paradise!
