Yeastie Boys His Majesty
Country: New Zealand
Brewery: Yeastie Boys
Style: India Pale Ale/IPA
Format: 750ml Bottle
This rare example of Burton-style India Pale Ale, is the third annual release in Yeastie Boys' Majesty anniversary series and a nod to the famed brewing waters of Burton-on-Trent. Originally intended to be the very first His Majesty in 2009, a short supply of English hops put the kibosh on that idea.
A couple of years later Yeastie Boys dusted off the recipe... Pale English malts, East Kent Golding and Fuggle hops, and a characterful ale yeast all play a strong role in this beer, but it is the mineral content of the brewing water that sets it in a category of its own.
Two beers specifically influenced this release - one an old favourite from Burton-upon-Trent itself, and the other from that lesser-known brewing centre of Auckland, New Zealand. As usual the beer is lovingly brewed, conditioned to optimum ripeness, and hand-bottled by Invercargill Brewery. Enjoy in moderation with good friends, good food and good music.
