Pride is what sets Speight's apart from the beer brand crowd. We take a look at their journey.
Nearly 140 years ago James Speight, Charles Greenslade and William Dawson had an idea brewing in mind to surpass many of the pioneering trends of their era.
With the amibition of producing an amber purity – a tasty liquid-infused blend consisting of hops, water and barley – Speight’s was born and it has remained one of the favoured Southern drops among punters for generations.
With the latest range sporting 13 unique brews, Speight’s award winning bevy of traditional ales and beers cater to a diverse palate to satisfy the hoppy cravings of those yearning to quench their thirst.
From crafted batch brew creations such as the Speight’s Empire Ale, the 5 Malt Old Dark and the Triple Hop Pilsner to the classic which started it all – Speight’s Gold Medal Ale – the Speight’s lineup has forged a unique bond with New Zealanders, many of whom hold the “Pride of the South” close to heart.
While Speight’s can thank its Gold Medal Ale for numerous success through the ages, many of their modern creations are gaining momentum in New Zealand and on the world stage.
An example of Speights foray into success on the contemporary stage is the Triple Hop Pilsner - a classic pilsner with a balanced blend of aromatic hops, full flavour and a clean finish.
Taking out a silver medal at the prestigious International Brewing Awards 2015, the Triple Hop Pilsner was the only Australasian beer to win an award.
With 844 beers entered from 50 countries worldwide entries were judged exclusively by 36 commercially practicing brewers from 16 countries around the world.
There’s really no stopping the success of this unique New Zealand gem. Get your hands on the range below.
