Proud to promote NZ productsStoke - Brewed for 3 weeks by the McCashin family.

We hope you enjoy this Stoke Dark. We made it the old fashioned way and never cut corners. It's brewed using Nelson's famous organic hops, premium malt, our own bespoke yeast and 14,000 year old Paleo water - No artificial additives or colouring.

Stoke is tank conditioned over 3 weeks - that's where the hint of honey and smooth mouth feel come from. Next time you're in Nelson, come and meet the team at our family brewery.

Actually NZ owned - Crafted in Nelson

This was one of the best beers I have tasted in quite a while. It had the dark 'hops-heavy' taste I enjoy, but without the gluggy weight many other dark ales seem to have these days.
I loved the flavour on its own, when chilled, but found it a little less appealing when I tried it at room temperature. But it was really at it's best when sipped between mouthfuls of a nice juicy porterhouse steak.
All in all, this was a delightful beer, and I only wish I had been able to sample more than 2 bottles.

I have always been a lighter-beer drinker... the pale ales, lager, draughts... 'dark' ales never held much appeal, with their thick, heavy flavours and strong hops-soaked aromas. Sometimes it's really nice to be reminded that not all beers in a category are the same.

Here is a 'dark' ale that doesn't taste heavy, isn't thick, or heavily hopped... it's fairly light and smooth, but with a dark colour and medium-dark taste that is easy to drink even for those of us who light it a bit on the light side.

What really made this beer appealing for me was also how how well it went in cooking - as the flavour basis for a rich beef pie, it couldn't be beat... and it went wonderfully in the slow-cooker with some chuck steak and veges to make a hearty stew.

Overall, the taste of the beer will vary from person to person - no two people get the same taste from anything - so I leave it to you to decide for yourself... but to help you on your way I can say this: If you can appreciate a beer, then this is certainly worth a try. It may be 'dark' but it's not heavy. A medium-strength Hops taste is there for sure, which just adds extra character to an already-delightful drop.
