Abbeydale Brewery

Firstly, a HUGE thank you to everyone who came down to SunFest, it was a roaring success as always! It’s almost time to start planning next year’s festival! By the time you are reading this, Tramlines should have been and gone. In the last issue we stated that we were making Tramlines 2 again from the previous year. The week following the submission deadline, we made a decision to alter the recipe slightly to create a new beer called Tramlines. Apologies for the confusion! Onto this months beers, Dr. Morton’s Survival Kit and Dr. Morton’s Eternal Combustion Engine should be on the bars of local pubs as we speak and keep your eyes open for Dr. Morton’s Moon Block, a golden 4.1% NZ ESB (New Zealand Extra Special Bitter) packed full of Pacific Jade and Southern Cross hops that give a bold herbal aroma with a spicy citrus flavour and a soft bitter finish. August also sees the return of Alchemy, a 4.2% pale, ideally suited to a warm summer’s day. Fruity with citrus spice from the Amarillo hops leading to a refreshing bitter finish. Another returning favourite is Abbey Ale, coming in at 5.5% this strong IPA packs a punch! In the American style, crisp and clean hop content with hints of lemon. Dry hopped for even more flavour! Also keep an eye out for Doctor Morton’s Proper Gander (4.1%, pale) and Doctor Morton’s Ignortion (4.3% golden) towards the end of the month. Last, but not least, we recently purchased some old whisky firkins and some larger White Burgundy oak casks, and you can read all about what we have been doing with them in our blog, go to or check out our Facebook or Twitter (@AbbeydaleBeers) for more information! Cheers and beers!
