Speight's New Summer Beer has arrived...
The Brewers at the historic Speight’s Dunedin Brewery have been busy again, this time crafting a fresh and invigorating beer perfect for those great New Zealand summer days.
With the aim of spicing up summer Speight’s Head Brewer Tracy Banner and Brewer Ewen Cameron have created Speight’s latest limited release handcrafted beer - Speight’s Samradh Ale.
Samradh, pronounced Sam-raa is Scottish Gaelic for "summer”, so what better name for a summer release beer brewed in Dunedin, a city steeped in Scottish heritage.
Speight’s Samradh Ale has been delicately infused with freshly ground pimento berries and natural ginger, which are added at the maturation stage of the brewing process, giving the beer subtle yet invigorating all-spice overtones.
The pimento tree is indigenous to the Caribbean islands, and the berries contain the characteristic cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pepper flavours, while ginger stabilises and melds the pimento into an absolute mouthful of zest!
This beer at 4.5% presents well with a golden hue, and is a superb match with poultry and fish dishes. Try it with the Speight’s Ale House’s delicious Black Cherry Chicken, Chicken Parcels, or even the Blue 'n' Gold – blue Cod lightly fried in Speight’s golden beer batter.
So head down to your local Speight’s Ale House today and celebrate the beginning of warm summer weather with a pint of Speight’s Samradh Ale - available on keg all summer long!
