Long White Cloud

South Island, NZ
Light Malt, Citrus, Spice, Tropical Fruit

The beer where it all began. Our flagship pale ale originally brewed in a garage in Christchurch, it's packed with the best in NZ South Island hops, and the finest Scottish malted barley.

Refreshing and light, it makes for easy drinking with citrus and tropical hop character, balanced perfectly against light malt flavour. 



This is the beer that started it all, our flagship pale ale packed with the finest New Zealand South Island hops we can get our hands on.

If you don't know our story by now, it all started when Scotsman Gavin and Kiwi Annika met working in a brewpub in British Colombia. From there they packed up and moved to New Zealand to learn how to brew beer.

Whilst there, Gavin built his first brew kit from scratch and experimented with different hops and styles until he eventually brewed what is now known as Long White Cloud. This was the beer that made him realise he stood a really good chance at making it in the beer world.

Named for its home land - "Aotearoa", Land of the Long White Cloud - this beer is packed with the likes of Nelson Sauvin and Motueka hops, set against a good malt backbone with the finest Scottish malted barley. You'll find notes of light malt, tropical fruits, and citrus, with smooth carbonation.

This is beer is where we began, grab a bottle for to try the quintessential taste of Tempest.

If you like great beer then this is definitely one to try. The hopping of this beer is truly perfect, the balance of flavour and bitterness is spot on. This brings me on to the malt of the beer. Whilst so many IPA's fall down in this respect this has not been forgotten here. For me this beer has it all and is as close to perfection as I've found. (Posted on 18/02/2017)
