Ryewaka is both a play on words (it uses rye and the Kiwi hop Riwaka) and a bundling together of some of the Wheaty’s favourite things (um, again, rye and lots of hops). As Wheaty Jade says: “I love Rye, love Rye in beer, love Riwaka Hops and am more than a little impartial to IPAs.” So, it’s a rye IPA that was launched three ways (regular tap, handpump and through their glasshopper “hopinator”) and is ready for sampling for those who want to see what the minds at two of SA’s finest come up with when left alone in a brewery. If you’re not tempted already, they were aiming for “the spicy, fruity, ‘hard’ grainy character of rye with the sharp, spicy, grapefruit-pith kick of Riwaka in a big, bitter and balanced IPA.”

Probably Jade’s "signature beer" - max hops, so plenty of bitterness. Not enough "bottom end", for mine, but distinctive, anyway. On tap at the Wheaty (of course).
