Yeastie Boys Blondie: Europa


Yeastie Boys
Formerly brewed at Invercargill Brewery
Wellington, New Zealand
Style: Golden Ale/Blond Ale | Ratings: 4 | Series Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.2%
Europa is the first of two beers, released in early 2011, that showcase the differences of a single ingredient. Like the Nerdherder and Monster series did with hops, these beers illuminate the difference that yeast makes in a low strength sessionable summer ale ("Europa" uses a clean German ale yeast, while "Rapture" emplys the fruitier notes of a Belgian abbey yeast).

Europa: Pale and wheat malts, Nelson Sauvin and NZ Cascade hops, German ale yeast.
Rapture: Pale and wheat malts, Nelson Sauvin and NZ Cascade hops, Belgian abbey yeast.
