Black Rock New Zealand Company Bitter is a rich full-bodied, brown beer for beer drinkers who like the strong taste of a real beer. The British created the New Zealand Company in 1839 to settle the colony. This beer is similar to an English Best Bitter. This stronger-tasting beer is both satisfying and thirst-quenching with full-bodied malt character from the Crystal and Black specialty malts balanced with a moderate bitterness . Brew with 1kg dextrose for a cleaner finish. For more body, colour and malt flavour use 1.7kg Black Rock Light or Amber unhopped malt extract instead of sugar.
The master brewers at Black Rock have expertly brewed the highest quality fresh wort in a state-of-the-art Krones brewery, using only the finest fresh NZ malt before gently evaporating to 80 brix for your convenience.
