About New Zealand Beer

Beer in New Zealand dates back to the late 1700s, with the arrival of Captain Cook; today, there are two large breweries that produce 90% of the nation's beers. Most of their products are lagers, with a few ales and specialty beers thrown in for good measure.

There are 50 micro breweries in the country today, a number that is impressive considering that less than five million people live in New Zealand.

Tutu
Fuji Apple Hard Cider
Brilliant yellow straw color. Delicate, fruity, waxy aromas and flavors of dried apple, beeswax candle, and white macadamia toffee with a supple, vibrant, spritzy, fruity light-to-medium body and a sleek, interesting, easy apple pie filling, kiwi, and lemon granita finish. A lively, fruity, very clean and crowd-pleasing cider that goes down easy; will be a good introduction to cider.
