Dark Vader

This beer is bursting with flavours and aromas of Christmas cake and stone fruit with almost port-like warmth to it.  Ideally suited to richer foods such as venison, rich stews and, of course, Christmas cake.  These foods cut through the weighty 8.4% abv.

Storm Chaser

This not often brewed in New Zealand style is a dark wheat beer with a creamy dark chocolate appearance.  The nose has pronounced aromas of chocolate and banana with a hint of roasted caramel.  It is mouth-filling with malty wheat flavours and low bitterness.

Beach Bum

Brewed for the West Coast IPA Challenge, this beer is a heavy hitter at 8.4% abv.  Bursting with sweet malt and alcoholic heat, this beer has citrus notes with a bitter finish. Definitely not for the faint-hearted!

The Hopstepper

Brewed for the inaugural Craft Beer Capital Hopstock festival, this green hopped beer is made with fresh Nelson Sauvin hops which were rushed straight from Motueka to the brewery. This American Pale Ale showcases the joy of fresh hops. It is pungent and punchy, with lashings of grapefruit before an intensely bitter finish.

Berried Alive Berry Cider

Making cider flavoured with various berries has been a popular innovation in recent years.  The Fork & Brewer uses boysenberry and raspberry to make a deep amber drop with notes of triple berries (boysenberry, raspberry and strawberry) and red grape skin.  Under the pink foam it has a balance of tartness and sweetness and can be enjoyed over ice.

Bandwagon Apple Cider

Helped by a great summer, New Zealander's have fallen deeply in love with cider and the Fork & Brewer is not too proud to jump on that 'bandwagon'. This dry English-style cider is the first cider made on-site by brewer Lester Dunn. It has an almost Granny Smith apple note - refreshingly dry in the glass but with a mellow finish which makes Bandwagon ridiculously drinkable.

Easter Egg Stout

Brewed specially for Easter, this smooth stout pours a dark chocolate brown with a fluffy espresso head. In the glass there are pronounced notes of milk chocolate, silky caramel and roasted coffee.

Golden Mile Lager

Brewed in the style of an easy-drinking German Helles lager, it has a grassy, slightly lemon nose, a smooth biscuity body followed by a refreshing bitter finish.  Helles means "light" in German and is a reference to the colour rather than the strength of the beer.

The Hoppit

Brewed to align with the Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" premiere in Wellington, The Hoppit is in the style of an Old World pale ale. This limited edition batch was balanced rather than brash, with notes of orange, sweet caramel and marmalade before a subtle but effective bitter finish. The drinker's palate is cleansed and another epic journey to the bar can be expected.

8-Course Craft Beer & Food Degustation

The fruity flavours of the beer mixed well with the prune, while the maltiness cut through the rich meats superbly. FORK MEETS BREWER // 8-COURSE CRAFT BEER & FOOD DEGUSTATION ...I showed up at the Fork & Brewer, camera and notebook in hand just in time for the beginning of an 8-course craft beer and food degustation course. It was organised as a part of the Choice Beer Week in Wellington, in collaboration with Anton Legg the head chef at the Fork & Brewer, and Neil Miller, the New Zealand Editor of the Beer & Brewer Magazine. So, I’ve never...
