Look What’s Back – Windjammer!

IT’S BACK! – WINDJAMMER

Fun Fact: A Windjammer is a class of Tall Ship. We first brewed this beer in 2011 ahead of the Tall Ships’ visit in July 2011. Can you believe that was 6 years ago?

An Antipodean extravaganza, find out all about Windjammer here.

 

 

 Metalman Windjammer

Windjammer is a pale amber beer, hopped exclusively with lots of New Zealand varieties. Lightly carbonated with a soft bitterness from a combination of Green Bullet and Pacific Jade, leading into tropical fruit flavours of pineapple and mango, with the wonderful addition of grapes from Nelson Sauvin hops – a delightful summer beer!

Tell me more.

Appearence: Deep amber in colours with a persistent white head.

Aroma: Tropical fruit aromas from the New Zealand hops, with caramel notes in the background.

Food Goes with Beer Right?

It sure does! Windjammer will drink well with roasted or BBQ’d meats, which will accentuate the caramel malt flavours, while the bitter finish will cut through greasy foods to leave the palate cleansed and ready for more.

This one is only available in kegs at the moment, but hey you never, we might can it soon.
