Beer Name: Gunnamatta
Brewery: Yeastie Boys
Location: Wellington, New Zealand
Style: Earl Gray IPA
A modern cult classic inspired by the Pale Ales that travelled from England to the East Indies and, perhaps more importantly, all that precious tea that returned on those same ships. Yeastie Boys' Gunnamatta utilises judicious amounts of Earl Grey Blue Flower tea to generate an intoxicating floral and citrus aroma with the quenching dry finish of an ice tea. A truly unique new world India Pale Ale with a decidedly old world twist.
Boldly floral nose – much like your granny’s bedroom - with stonefruit and citrus flavours and a long dry finish.
About the Brewery:
"Yeastie Boys are a Wellington-based brewing duo (without their own brewery) who have been amongst the leading innovators during the recent rise of craft brewing in New Zealand. The brainchild of Stu McKinlay and Sam Possenniskie - two of New Zealand's most prominent beer activists - the Yeastie Boys have spent the last seven years picking up trophies, receiving critical acclaim from around the world, and proving to even the most cynical beer geek that contract brewing really can result in great beer." - Yeastie Boys
