Hinemoa Street has been linked to Birkenhead for over 100 years ‰ÛÒ it‰۪s the original gateway from the sea to the village centre, now home to the Birkenhead Brewing Company.
The street was named after the story of Hinemoa‰۪s commitment, love and dedication for T?Ìàt‰âÂ?nekai and she inspired our Pacific Pale Ale. A beer with full body and balance that dances with you.
Brewed on a specialty malt base underpinning four hops, this beer offers a kaleidoscope of pacific aroma and taste.
We toast the stunner that is Hinemoa, a legendary lover embraced by our hometown in Birkenhead.
Hinemoa pours light copper with a bright white head, this distinctly New Zealand Pale Ale deliver a nose of sweet tropical fruit and resinous pine. Citrus zest, fresh grapefruit and woody herbaceous hop flavours are well presented on a backbone of Gladfield malt with enough depth and balance to support the hop flavour without compromising session-ability.
‰ۡÌÝÌÏA mid-palate with hints of orange marmalade followed by a subtle, biscuity malt sweetness, finally give way to a crisp, cleansing bitterness on the finish.
Complimentary: Sharp cheddar cheese, Cumin Seed Gouda
Contrasting: An ideal chaser for a Chicken Tikka or Beef Rendang
