Foxhole

commememorative pale ale

It's oft been said that NZ came of age in the trenches of WWI. We grew up under fire. We lost our wide-eyed innocence and far too many of our best young men. But in that cauldron we also forged our values: courage, commitment, comradeship and compassion. Those brave ANZAC Diggers created – out of the very mud of their foxholes – the future we enjoy today. The RSA continues to embody these values and this beer is our salute to them and the soldiers of Aotearoa's past and present.
