Kiwi's Playhouse

The kiwi fruit is a very odd thing indeed. It’s sweet, tart, playful....but also brown, furry, and supernatural green on the inside. Frankly, the kiwi is altogether weird, but it’s also pretty delicious. Did we go there? We sure did, by peeling an entire pallet-full of ripe fresh kiwi fruit and adding it to a finely tuned sour beer in red wine barrels for a few months. We blended this with another beer that's spent over a year in barrels to add extra complexity, and then re-fermented it all in the bottle.

The result is Kiwi's Playhouse, a strong, playful beer with a distinctly tart edge. Kiwi’s Playhouse sports a bright palate that's dry, full of tropical fruit and more delicious than eye-watering. It's great with everything you want to eat this summer - barbecue, fish tacos, seafood, salads, goat cheeses. Forget the rosé and get yourself into Kiwi's Playhouse. Trust us - it's more fun in here.
