THE YARN BEHIND THE BREW
The year was 1930 when the New Zealand Oil Refineries began producing petrol, meaning that for the first time, Taranaki people could buy oil from their own oilfields. After several teething problems - including oil tanks solidifying in the cold weather leaving farmers to defrost their fuel tanks with blowtorches, Peak Petrol was born. Like a few beer brands that we all know, "Taranaki's own high-octane fuel' eventually fell away to the multinationals, but we're paying tribute with our own high-octane brew, loaded with a ridiculous amount of American and New Zealand grown hops that leave a tropical, resinous slick on the tongue.
