About Me:
Extremely passionate about beer, home brewer who is too disorganised to enter competitions, founding secretary of SOBA, slight Anglophilic leanings though proud to be a kiwi, refuses to take life too seriously, part right wing fascist bastard, part bleeding heart lefty, mostly libertarian, but finding it increasingly hard to reconcile these parts, atheist and free thinker, musician and songwriter, philosopher but only after enough beer (aren't we all?), nerd by trade, Luddite by nature, walking contradiction. Hi. I'm Greig.

Well I don't know how much your've heard and what but the short story is yes New Munster is to disappear. We have actually sold the Brewery to an off shore client and are not looking at contracting out the brands. So I hope you enjoyed that New Munster because I'm affraid it may be the last. They all seem to go alot faster when this sort of thing happens. All the best and sorry to dis appoint.

I would have emailed you but my work email is down. I take it, from your comment in the Chch group, that you enjoyed the Yeastie Boys PKB. Did you notice much difference from the "trial" sample I gave you a couple of months back - for the better or worse? The homebrewed versions used 100% US Cascade and the commercial batch was Sauvin to bitter, NZ styrian and Oraganic NZ Cascade for flavour/aroma, and all three for dry hopping. We wouldn't have been far off Armageddon proportions in the kettle - possibly even more, actually. The hop change is a scary change when moving from 30L to 1,200L but we did get some good advice from doug at NZ hops and did a 30L trial at Invercargill - just to be sure (not that we had much of an opportunity to change if we'd got it wrong, as we'd already ordered all the ingredients!).

I'll be in touch later about Hamilton getting Yeastie Boys.

Hi Greig. We will be having some free tasting around 8th October for out Marzen. At the moment there will be a tasting at each pub. If you and any of the SOBA crew are keen, I will let you know closer to the date so you can come along for a taste.
At 6:55am on September 20, 2008, Shane Morley said…
Yeah, it will be on at all the pubs. I will give you a date when I know for certain.

We are doing a brewers special every few months. At the moment we have a Doppelbock on tap. We have yet to get proper tap handles, so you may have to ask the staff.
Hopefully I can make it down sometime and have a beer with you.

Definitely mixed responses from those who tried trials and commercial. I'm on the fence - I probably prefer the commercial because I can still drink it. And then it'll all be gone too!
I think the yeast was a big improvement - US05 to Denny's Favourite 50. Would love to try two batches next year, one with NZ hops and one with American. I'll see if my accountant (Sam) will allow it ;-)
Thanks for the promotional work in Hamilton!
