Today is one of those days where it’s extra awesome to be a Beer Hug customer.

On the 26th June, 36 of NZ’s best craft breweries went head-to-head to find out who could produce NZ’s best one-of-a-kind, never-brewed-before IPA's using only the finest New Zealand hops. 

In collaboration with the legendary Smith's Craft Beer House in Queenstown and NZ Hops, we are stoked to present 12 of the best, packaged, all New Zealand hopped IPA beers available in NZ right now. This box is sooooooo fresh......

You simply won't find this selection anywhere else....so lock is a box QUICKLY as we only have 200 boxes left!!!

The winner on the day, taking home both the Judges and NZ Hops Hop Breeders Choice was Good George. Deep Creek won the People's Choice Award (for the 3rd year in a row!). Massive congrats to them both!

We are stoked to announce that the Top 12 scoring NZ IPA packaged beers in NZ right now are as follows. You'll get 1 of each in this Limited Edition release (11x440ml + 1x330ml);

Deep Creek x 440ml South Side Hazy NZ IPA (6.5%) (People’s Choice Winner)
Three Boys X Burkes x 330ml GAS NZ IPA (6.3%)
Lakeman x 440ml Jet Fuel NZ IPA (6.9%)
Behemoth x 440ml Secret Squirrel Hazy IPA (6.9%)
Garage Project x 440ml Black Party NZ IPA (6.2%)
Urbanaut x 440ml Kahurangi NZ IPA (7.0%)
Double Vision x 440ml Hop Drop NZ IPA (7.2%)
8-Wired x 440ml Nectaron Express Hazy IPA (7.2%)
Bach Brewing x 440ml Planet Nectaron Hazy NZ IPA (6.3%)
McLeod’s x 440ml Southern Roadie NZ IPA (7.0%)
Bone Face x 440ml Zombie Stomp NZ IPA (7.0%)
Epic x 440ml Hop Cannon NZ IPA (6.5%)

Acknowledging that the good guys at Good George don't yet have a packaged offering of their Champion NZ IPA brew, they've kindly offered to include a 20% discount voucher from the Good George website (that you can use for any purchase at any time including the NZ IPA Champion when it's available). Nice huh!

You’ll also receive tasting notes and a score card so that you can judge these beers for yourself and see whether you have good taste too. Then upload them to Untappd.com and compare them to your peers!

BUT SERIOUSLY......this box will sell out within days, so lock in a box now to avoid disappointment! 

We hop(e) you enjoy!

Yum

I keep getting emails from these guys about a box of craft beer. It’s always to good to refuse. Fantastic to try beers from breweries I’ve never heard of as well as excellent beers from ones I have. All at prices way cheaper then the super market or bottle store.

Great beer

Ever since I was privileged enough to visit Lakeman brewery I’ve been a massive fan of the amber liquid produced by this legendary place. It’s all just super awesome - you’d be mad not to try it!

Cheers 🍻

Superb special collection

Invictus was the winner for me at the end of the day, but each of them in this collection was very refreshing and something to hunt down in the stores. Wide range of flavours from the malty richness of Red IPA through to the crisp citrus of the Urbanaut Del Mar. Duncan's also has to get a nod as my guilty sour sweet pleasure.
