Kereru Hop To It Pale Ale & New Zealand Short Tailed Bats

Te Toroa: The Wandering Albatross

Today we drove to Upper Hut and visited a brewery, as you do.  Kereru Brewing Company is a local artisanal brewery here in Wellington. Kereru has good beer and some great beer label artwork.

One of the beers brewed at Kereru is called “Hop To It” and there are native New Zealand bats on the label. How cool is that?

These are New Zealand Lesser Short Tailed Bats (pekapeka-tou-poto).  There are two extant bat species in New Zealand:  New Zealand Lesser Short-Tailed Bats and New Zealand Long-Tailed Bats.

From the back label:

New Zealand short tailed bats hop around the forest floor. They’re pretty hoppy. So is this beer.

Kereru Hop To It is a good, well balanced Pale Ale.
