It happened again. We released Southern Star as a seasonal last year, and we nearly got lynched when it ran out. Then we brewed Northern Star, which went on to two big awards in rapid succession and another abrupt sell out. Clearly something had to be done if we were going to escape with our lives. The problem is, the fantastic hops we use are in such limited quantities that we can’t get them throughout the year. So we worked very hard with our good friends at Charles Farams to procure the last of the crop in the US, and plan for those coming out of NZ. So if we got our planning right (and drinkers don’t get too greedy), we should have either Northern or Southern Star available permanently. Now that’s worth drinking to!
