Yeastie Boys Hit U.S.

Yeastie Boys Pot Kettle BlackNew beer from New Zealand hitting American shelves – Yeastie Boys Pot Kettle Black, and Digital IPA.   Let’s get acquainted with the Yeasties.
It’s 2 guys – Stu McKinlay, and Sam “The Grandmaster” Possenniskie.  Not only are they taking NZ by storm, but now the United States.  First up – Pot Kettle Black.  Somewhere between a hoppy porter and a black IPA.  

Pot Kettle Black is our multi-award winning ‘Black IPA’ (that some call a ‘Hoppy Porter’). The different names convey the fact that this beer is a contradiction of styles: fresh and hoppy, yet dark and rich. Most importantly it is mindbendingly delicious and a complete original. Like all Yeastie Boys beer is is painstakingly crafted by people who love beer., then conditioned to optimum ripeness, before making its way into a bottle and then to your hands. Now take the next step and enjoy with thoughtful consideration.
