European barley malts and an authentic Belgian ale yeast give Dale’s Gold Medal Belgian-style Pale Ale biscuity and toffee-like malt flavours, with hints of spicy clove and bubblegum.

Whole New Zealand hop flowers, of the Motueka variety, provide hints of citrus and a quenching, dry finish.

“My love of brewing evolved into a career after I entered several beers in the 2010 SOBA National Homebrew Competition. Pitted against 300 entries in the country’s largest competition, I was delighted to win the supreme champion award,” owner Dale Holland said.

“These days I still design and perfect my recipes at home, but brew my award-winning beers at a 
commercial craft brewery in Marlborough.”
