You know the stout, the one made all over the world - from China to the Caribbean? The one sold from Singapore to the Pacific Islands? This isn't that. But Subtropical is a well-crafted, warm-fermented dark lager. Best of all, it's brewed right here in Aotearoa.
Pouring jet black with a slight off-white tan head, your nose instantly meets rich bittersweet chocolate with hints of espresso & campfire. Smooth, rich in body, crisp with soft malt, cocoa, & woody notes, it finishes finish with a hint of green banana, a smattering of hops & balanced bitterness. In a word? Refreshing. Dive in.
Brewed for the 2019 New Zealand Stout Challenge.
