Turns out we make New Zealand's #1 beer!

Updated: Oct 30, 2021

Hot on the heels of the New World Top 30 award for the #FAKENEWS Hazy IPA, we've now taken out the NZ Brewers Guild's coveted Champion New Zealand Beer Award for 2021, beating 837 beers and 71 other breweries in the process.

The Unforgiv3n P0rter won the only gold in the Porter/Stout class and therefore the trophy. Up against all other trophy beers it made it to the last three, in good company with beers from industry giants Garage Project and Panhead. To be named Champion New Zealand Beer in this quality company is an outstanding achievement, if we do say so ourselves.

Needless to say the news hasn't really sunken in yet but it is an amazing accolade and more exposure for the little brewery that could, and a tribute to the skills, dedication and hard work of brewer, Sebastian Burke.

The Unforgiv3n P0rter is in its first season of release and is currently on tap at Burkes HQ, the Blue Lake Eatery and Bar in Lake Tekapo.
