Celebrate this royal marriage! Hailing from a wine region and socialising with wine-maker friends was bound to rub off on my beer making one day. A NZ-hopped Czech-style Pils brewed with European Pilsener malt and a classic bottom-fermenting lager yeast. If Pilsener is the king of beers, then I believe that Nelson Sauvin are the queen of hops (The one hop to rule them all!). Grown in the same valley in the South Island of NZ famous for Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs, Nelson Sauvin has similar flavours to the grape variety from which it takes its name. Nettle, gooseberry and elderflower aromatics are prominent in this spritzy, slightly bitter pilsener. Perfect with seafood, bbq, fresh air, best mates and sunshine. ABV 5.3
Badlands Brewery was established in 2010 by ex-Pom Jon Shiner who has been executing his mission statement ever since: – “ To produce world-class, nationally recoqnised, full-flavoured premium beers, using the finest ingredients and best practice brewing processes” .
Badlands beers can be found in virtually every self-respecting craft beer venue across NSW and the ACT and has recently started distribution into Victoria. All Badlands Brewery’s beers are made only with malted wheat and barley, water, yeast and hops and come to you as nature intended – unfiltered and free of preservatives and additives. They will never contain cheap adjuncts favoured by the larger breweries, such as corn, rice or cane sugar and are hand-crafted, a 1000lt a time on a manual, hands-on brewhouse. Head Brewer Jon Shiner’s brewing philosophy is that Badlands’ beers should be deeply satisfying, characterful and interesting right to the bottom of your third pint.
