THE YARN BEHIND THE BREW

Newton King was a prominent businessman in Taranaki who firmly believed that one should work hard and play hard. For Newton, leisure meant drinking scotch whisky, smoking cigarettes and having a flutter on the gee gees. In a genius move, he began cross breeding thoroughbreds with draft horses. His track star ‘Battle Axe’ took in over £1,000 at the turn of the century, an exorbitant amount after inflation. Much like Newton’s moustache, this Scotch Ale will present as rich and smokey with hints of peated whisky.
