ParrotDog Rarebird Kakapo (650ml Bottle)
It is 1975, Fiordland, an area once lauded as the Kakapo gardens, a lone male is booming in his bowl: calling for a mate. His name is Richard Henry. Rimu are heavy with berries this year and Richard calls tirelessly night after nocturnal night. His sensory whiskers rustle in the breeze; beady eyes focussed, hopeful. Alas, no reply. The strange and ancient owl parrot has been credited with the power to tell the future. And maybe he can.
With a population today of 126, Richard Henry helped bring these birds back from imminent extinction. In homage; we’ve brewed one that is just as particular, elusive and green. A wet-hopped IPL brewed with fresh Motueka and Cascade hop flowers.
Strong Pale Lager/Imperial Pils
Most commonly found in Poland, but also in other European countries as well, especially the East. These are essentially stronger versions of pilsners, though the increased malt and alcohol will noticeable reduce the hop accent. Because these are usually all-malt, and comfortably hopped, they are easily distinguishable from malt liquors. Without the malt character of bocks, these are worthy of a style all their own.
