Brewers' Selection

This Brewers' Selection releases celebrate none other than the art of brewing. Whilst hops are definitely in fashion at the moment, Harrington’s tend to look towards producing superbly balanced brews that look to deliver interesting combinations of malt, yeast and hops… This is a special range of bolder flavours.

  • Baltic Porter - Harrington's Breweries

    Brewers' Selection Baltic Porter

    Our take on this classic stays true to the blueprint, with a generous malt bill and a robust ABV (8.5%), to produce a rich and rewarding dark beer. Huge chocolate and coffee flavours dominate, with shades of sweetness, dark fruit and raisins. The aroma is enticing, the finish is smooth.

  • Imperial American Pale Ale - Harrington's Breweries

    Brewers' Selection Imperial American Pale Ale

    The IMPERIAL APA you is a showcase of American Simcoe, Centennial and Chinook hops, which we might add are like the proverbial hen's teeth to get your hands on depending on the season.

    The APA is a relatively young style of beer when compared to its ancient cousins from Europe. But this new, imperial expression will leave you certain that the style is here to stay.

    Our iAPA is a great match for a wide variety of foods. Excellent with a range of spicy foods where the crisp bitterness of the hops cuts through the spice and provides a refreshing accompaniment to the strong flavours. The malt profile creates bready, sweet caramel notes. However, the US hop mix dominates. With mind blowing fruity citrus aromas, a strong bitterness (90IBU) and crisp mouthfeel, it is a hop lovers dream.

  • India Pale Ale (I.P.A) - Harrington's Breweries

    Brewers' Selection India Pale Ale

    As one story goes, India Pale Ales originated out of the highly hopped beers that shipped from Britain to India in colonial times. The preserving power of the hop protected the beer from spoiling during the long trip, imparting the beers with a distinctive aroma and flavour that was suited to the hotter climate.

    As an aside, this may not actually be true. But most certainly at some point this pale, hoppy ale became an in demand commodity. Today, IPAs have become synonymous with the West Coast of America where hop varieties are crammed into bottles of explosively flavoured ales. Our release has a foot in both camps, but leaning more towards a strong modern British approach.

    It's a big bold beer, with a crisp bitterness and orange-marmalade notes from our 7 - yes seven - hop additions, all laid on a bed of sweet malt flavour.

  • Brewers Selection Black IPA - Harrington's Breweries

    Brewers' Selection Black IPA

    This Black IPA was brewed on our 25th anniversary using a new malt from Gladfield Malt. The unique characteristic of this malt is that it adds caramel flavours without additional sweetness or roasted notes, giving brewers an alternative option to balance the beer without sacrificing flavours. Harrington’s Breweries was lucky to be one of the first to brew with this malt "Supernova" and felt it deserved an all New Zealand high hop backing of Cascade and Nelson Sauvin.

    Cheers to another 25 years!
