Rex Attitude

- Peat-smoked Strong Golden Ale -

The world's first heavily-peated single malt ale. A deceptively innocuous game changing beer that is possibly the smokiest in the world, certainly one of the most polarising, and yet very subtle and beguilingly drinkable for those who get past the initial shock. It is the favourite beer of both Yeastie Boys and the beer that won us the Morton Coutts Trophy for Innovation at the New Zealand Brewers Guild "BrewNZ" beer awards. BBQ in a beer!
