Regardless of current brewing trends, a bit outside the mainstream waves – in our own way – we are developing a range of our own lagers. After the Pils, MVPils, ITAPils and Lager Niemiecki, we are happy to introduce another “dolniak” by Trzech Kumpli. This time with a very interesting New Zealand chic. When drinking Swell, you can expect aromas of grapes, gooseberries, as well as those of coconut, kiwi and tropical fruit. Of course, we haven’t forgotten the bitterness, which is “must have” to balance the beer that has spring and summer in its taste.
The name of the beer itself, Swell, refers to the brewers who pour huge uniform waves of the great New Zealand hops into the tanks: Motueka, Motuere, Riwaka and – of course – Nelson Sauvin. All this to achieve the perfect balance between intensity and delicacy of a bitter and dry lager.
For the uninitiated: A swell is a series of mechanical or surface gravitational waves generated by distant weather systems that travel thousands of miles across oceans and seas.
Hops: Motuere, Motueka, Nelson Sauvin, Pacifica, Wai-iti, Lotus
First batch: March 2022
