Fork Brewing releases Champion Pale Ale for debut bottled beer

Fork Brewing has debuted its first bottled beer, with the release of our champion 5.9% Pale Ale Godzone Beat in 500ml bottles. Godzone Beat topped more than 50 entries in the Pale Ale category at the 2015 Brewers Guild of New Zealand Awards to take out the Champion Pale Ale Trophy last September. Colin Mallon, Operations guy of Fork & Brewer (the home of Fork Brewing), said Godzone Beat's win sparked the move into bottling its beer. ...READ MORE

Gold Medal Famous 4.9% Aotearoa Golden Ale

Fork Brewing's first release of 2016 is a bit of a pseudo-release: a 4.9% Aotearoa Golden Ale that is a reincarnation of the original Gold Medal Famous, the first-ever beer brewed and released by Fork Brewing (way back in the heady days of 2012). ...READ MORE

Sourbet 3.7% Raspberry & Lemon Berliner Weisse

Fork Brewing's final new brew for 2015 is a 4.0% Pacific Milk Stout. Its name partly pays homage to Wellington's most horizon-infiltrating edifice, the Majestic Building: close neighbour of Fork Brewing, and in the shadow of which Fork lies, await, for weary office workers that pour forth from its sliding doors at the end of a long day. ...READ MORE

Little Forker Release: Fire & Freckles - 3.2% Ginger, Smoke & Milk Sugar Belgian Table Beer

Fire & Freckles was a bit of a twist on the Belgian Table Beer style, and came about as a bit of a happy accident. Belgian Table Beers are traditionally quite low in strength - often 1-2% - and imbued characteristic Belgian yeast notes: fruity esters, clove-like phenols and other such aromatics. This Ginger, Smoke & Milk Sugar Belgian Table Beer is 3.2% and (here's where the happy accident takes place) fermented with four different yeast strains. The original yeast added to the brew was a blend of Belgian Trappist High Gravity yeast and Bavarian Wheat Blend, a combination of German Wheat Beer yeasts and an Ale yeast. ...READ MORE
