Two Liberty fan faves in one; easy-drinking Oh Bro, and Jungle Juice ? the untamed, palate-pounding Hazy. With the best bits of each brew carefully blended and balanced by hop savant, Juice Bro?s soft mats highlight the citrusy pomelo and orange stylings of Mosaic and Amarillo cones.
This opaque, cross-country juggernaut matches an East Coast yeast style to West Coast hops and refuses to filter the results. The malt's deliberately soft so the Mosaic and Amarillo cones get to dictate terms, mostly by saturating your palate in passionfruit and pineapple. Welcome to the jungle and so forth.
Winner of the 2013 West Coast Challenge at the malthouse in Wellington - a palate-destroying smackdown you've got to experience to understand - Knife Party is a Swiss Army IPA featuring every US hop variety allowed through customs. If you heedlessly crave the hop, you've found the correct beer.
It sounds Japanese but it's as American as having a BMI of 32. The Yakima Valley in Washington state, situated in the top left corner of the lower 48, is home to some of our favourite hop varieties, the tiny green flavour bombs that powered the whole craft beer renaissance from the get go. Liberty is what it smells like.
Lion Brown was first known as Imperial Draught Ale, before being nick named 'The Brown Bomber' by servicemen in the forties and later taking on that name in 1950. Established as Lion Brown from 1953, it was originally served only from the tap - a unique barrel shaped stand that became an icon in pubs around the country.
A clean, fresh and distinctive ice beer, Lion Ice is ice-brewed, a centuries-old German brewing method known as 'Eisbock'. This special brewing process involves chilling the beer in ice chambers, causing crystals to form.
