Kunekune | Manuka Smoked Porter | BeerCo Recipe Kit
Who doesn’t love tasty smokey bacon and warming your toes by the fire in the depth of winter with a well brewed smoked porter? We have pulled together for you the ultimate warming Kunekune | Manuka Smoked Porter | BeerCo Recipe Kit named after the little Kunekune pig introduced to NZ from the UK and a hit with the Maori and Pakeha alike cooked in a traditional hāngi on hot rocks beneath the earth or on a spit this little piggy is one to be relished with delight and should be accompanied by a subtly smoked Porter to bring out the best of Kunekune. Manuka is a native tea tree to NZ and interestingly found in AU as well. More famous in Honey, Gladfield Malt have taken the unique smoke of the Manuka tree and made a delightfully subtle and complex smoked malt that will bring across even the smoke beer haters.
We suggest you put this one down in Autumn and give it time to age and develop complexity. If you are into smoking your own bacon or curing meat then grab your finest smokey little piggy and invite all your friends over for some slow and low smokey delights! Cheers #brewhappy and as always #drinkhappier and #responsibly and give this brew a review for the benefit of our customers – old and new.
