The name "East India Pale Ale" originated in England last century. Beer exported to India was unpasteurised, which allowed secondary fermentation to occur in the barrel on the long boat trip to the colonies of East India. It soon became a favourite because its natural CO2 created a brew with an effervescent character. More than 100 years on, Tui East India Pale Ale is as popular as it was when Henry Wagstaff brewed the beer by hand and delivered it around the district by horse and cart.
This fine ale is a thoroughly refreshing beer with a light palate best suited to beaches, barbecues and all beer related occasions. Serve lightly chilled on its own or with any manner of barbecued meats.
Brewed since 1889.
