The Tuatara Blog
Tuatara Brewery and Kiwi band, SIX60, have teamed up to create a Summer brew for music lovers and beer lovers.
The hop harvest comes but once a year - and for 2017's harvest we’ve released our brand new Vastafarian 5.6% Green Hopped IPA, brewed with Nelson Sauvin and Riwaka in fresh hop form!
The Tuatara brewers aren’t very good at sitting still. Short attention spans and limitless imaginations means there’s always a creative new brew popping up here and there.
Paraparaumu, 31 January 2017 – The award-winning Tuatara Brewing Company has today been sold to DB Breweries.
Tuatara’s core range of beers have shed their old skins. But underneath the new skins, lie the same beast - our attentively crafted, delicious New Zealand craft beers.
You’ll see that our Bohemian Pilsner, Bavarian Hefe, Helles Lager and Aotearoa Pale Ale not only have a new look, but also new names to better reflect the styles and personalities of each beer.
It's been exciting times for Tuatara Brewing Co., not only did their brewers scoop ultimate endorsement for their beers with Best in Class trophies for Sauvinova, Mot Eureka and Weiz Guy at the recent NZ Brewers Guild Awards, but these beers will also have 'new skins' appearing on shelf over the coming weeks.
Yep we are pretty stoked. The Tuatara team are very proud to announce we were named Champion Brewery at The New Zealand Brewers Guild Awards on Saturday night (October 8, 2016). This award was based on cumulative medals achieved across categories.
This amazing feat also provides an opportune time to tell loyal Tuatara aficionados of upcoming name and packaging changes. Seems we didn't quite realise how well we'd do and now we've got people wondering about new names they haven't heard before. Don't worry we were planning to tell you!
This year the RSA celebrates 100 years of supporting those who have served and sacrificed, as well as leading New Zealand in remembering those who didn’t come back.
We know how much you Coners hang out for our signature green hop brew each year…
Well, the wait is over with our fresh hop 2016 Harvest Conehead 6% Air-Hopped IPA, making its annual air drop into retail outlets and craft beer bars this week (15 April).
If you've got The Knack, well, it's only natural to put it to use. (Can't argue with instinct.)
That's why we wrangled The Knack of a couple of young, local Hop Hunters and their motley band of brewer, bushman and city boy to hunt out the wildest and most untamed of hops, hidden deep in the leafy grottos of the Waikanae River.
