Birkenhead, the ancestral home of Birkenhead Brewing Company, the borough by the sea. The area was the gateway to State Highway 1 for the North of Auckland accessed in the early days by ferry but now accessed by our famous Auckland Harbour Bridge since the late 1950’s. As a tilt to our history, we’ve created a gateway beer for Pilsner fans.
Our New Zealand Pilsner pours golden clear with aromas of passionfruit, citrus and spice. A cleansing bitterness from local hops adds a perfect finish.
