THE YARN BEHIND THE BREW
In 1852 a chap by the name of William Collins was sent north to Auckland to collect a brand new printing press. Collins dragged the bulky unit by Bullock to the Port, before loading the Press onto a Boat and setting sail for New Plymouth. This Printing Press was responsible for the Taranaki Herald from 1852 before being retired in 1989.
We've brewed this Oyster Baltic Porter in collaboration with Mahurangi Oysters (Warkworth) - A celebration of the rich marriage between Malt and Mollusc; Taranaki and Tāmaki Makaurau.
