Welcoming ‘White Palace’ a ‘fruited and bruted’ India Pale Lager with lashings of Passion Fruit and Pinot Gris juice (or Grauburgunder, as we like to call it around here). Expect delicate tropical fruit and melon aromatics and flavour – reminiscent of new world white wines – and a clean, super dry finish.
The Yeastie Boys – Stu McKinlay and Sam Possenniskie are the dynamic duo of New Zealand’s craft beer scene. They burst onto the beer landscape with two trophies for their flagship Porter Pot Kettle Black at BrewNZ 2009 and have remained firmly ensconced there ever since.
DID YOU KNOW?
Founder, head boy (and occasional wearer of brightly coloured pants) Stu McKinlay is the fire-starter at Yeastie Boys. He oversees everything from the design of the beers, through the naming and conceptual design of the packaging and marketing collateral, to market development and publicity. He’s also often picked as a spokesperson and poster boy for the craft beer scene in New Zealand. While he has twice held roles on the executive committee of the Brewers Guild of New Zealand, Stu prefers his benevolent dictator role at Yeastie Boys.
