Tuatara named BGNZ Champion Brewery 2016

Posted on Tuesday 11/10/2016

Yep we are pretty stoked. The Tuatara team are very proud to announce we were named Champion Brewery at The New Zealand Brewers Guild Awards on Saturday night (October 8, 2016). This award was based on cumulative medals achieved across categories.

This amazing feat also provides an opportune time to tell loyal Tuatara aficionados of upcoming name and packaging changes. Seems we didn't quite realise how well we'd do and now we've got people wondering about new names they haven't heard before. Don't worry we were planning to tell you!

Soo… ahem, we are pleased to tell you that we won gold and best in class for:

  • Mot Eureka Pilsner (known as Bohemian Pilsner) – NZ Lager Category 
  • Sauvinova (same name you know and love!) – Pale Ale Category 
  • Weiz Guy (known as Bavarian Hefe) – Wheat and Grain Category 

Tuatara's kAPAi also won silver in the Pale Ale Category (yep this is our Aotearoa Pale Ale), as did Helluva Lager (Helles Lager) in International Lager.

You'll start seeing the new names and packaging over the next couple of weeks. The new packaging has a picture of the old box to make sure you can still find your fave!

AND we have two new products – Tomahawk American Pale Ale and Amarillo American Dark Ale.

Keep an eye out..
