Realbeer.com Selects Limburg Witbier For Exclusive U.S. Beer-of-the-Month Club
Local microbrewery, Limburg Brewing Company of Hawkes Bay goes stateside this year – Limburg Witbier will be the July 2002 beer selection for members of The Michael Jackson Real Beer Tour, one of Realbeer.com’s exclusive beer-of-the-month clubs.
This is the first major export order to the USA for Limburg Brewing Company and the first beer from New Zealand to feature in the club’s impressive line-up of beers. The beers are chosen by Michael Jackson. Not the gloved one, but the world's leading writer on beer. Jackson selects the beers from small to mid-sized breweries from around the world that produce beers that are not generally available in the U.S.A. and Realbeer.com arranges for them to be delivered to members.
The Limburg Brewing Company is one of the newest and lesser-known microbreweries in New Zealand, until now. Owner and head brewer, Chris O’Leary, is pleased at the prospect of being exposed to a U.S. audience. “We brew our witbier with passion, using traditional Belgian technique and the best raw ingredients because a good witbier is stunning - shortcuts make for mediocre witbiers. Its an honour for our witbier to be chosen by Michael and exposed to a discerning US beer market. The effort has been worth it!”
