5.5% Grisette, the cleaner coal miners Saison. Made with Modern Times’ Brett strain & an obligatory dosage of NZ hops, its symphony of balance. “New Zealand’s shores were graced with the brilliance of Matt Walsh, Head Brewer of Modern Times.

After scoping out the hop harvest in Nelson, doing a collaboration with Beer Baroness in Christchurch (anyone else get to try Rye-ot Grrrl…so good!), he made his way up to Auckland. There he teamed up with the crew at 8 Wired for another collaboration.

They came up with Halfway to Whangarei, a Grissette that was given a primary fermentation with 8 Wired’s house Saison strain, and a secondary fermentation with Modern Times’ house Brettanomyces strain. An obligatory dosage of NZ hops rounds out this tart, funky, refreshing, complex and balanced beer.

Here’s a quote from an unnamed member of the office: It’s just… a symphony of balance!”-Cult Beer Store
