A Note on This Beer
Most people know New Zealand for its interesting fauna, cool accents, and kick-butt rugby team.
But, it’s time for the country’s amazing hops to be featured in their very own style — the all New Zealand-hop Pilsner!
That’s the idea behind today’s Tectonic Uplift, dreamed up and brewed by the innovators at Elder Pine Brewing & Blending. They’re the first brewery we’ve featured on Tavour to use two distinct Kiwi hop allstars together — Pacific Jade and Nelson Sauvin — to create a Southern Hemispheric, primed-for-pounding New Zealand Pilsner!
Uplift starts with a balanced dose of Pacific Jade Hops. The brewers poured these hops into the boil for subtle whispers of lemon zest aroma and flavor. A weighty, double dry-hopping of Nelson Sauvin adds vinous white grape and tropical fruit character. London Lager Malt provides a crisp, crackery, honey and straw backbone that lingers through each quenching gulp!
At an easy sipping 5.8% ABV, Uplift makes an excellent sessioner — a highly crushable brew to enjoy with every increasing minute of late-winter sunlight!
Grab a few cans of this bright New Zealand Pils to share with your best mates, or kick it solo with a pint or two on a laid back Saturday afternoon. However you choose to enjoy it, as a Kiwi would say, Uplift is “as good as gold; a real choice beer!”
USA Today placed Elder Pine on their list of Best Breweries of 2020!
