The beefed up version of Rex Attitude by Yeastie boys. While this beer has the same smokey and whisky characters as Rex Attitude the higher ABV content makes it a slightly smoother sipper. Amazing peat aromas. This beer is a real polariser – we guarantee you will either love it or hate – there is definitely no middle ground here!
The Yeastie Boys – Stu McKinlay and Sam Possenniskie are the dynamic duo of New Zealand’s craft beer scene. They burst onto the beer landscape with two trophies for their flagship Porter Pot Kettle Black at BrewNZ 2009 and have remained firmly ensconced there ever since.
DID YOU KNOW?
Founder, head boy (and occasional wearer of brightly coloured pants) Stu McKinlay is the fire-starter at Yeastie Boys. He oversees everything from the design of the beers, through the naming and conceptual design of the packaging and marketing collateral, to market development and publicity. He’s also often picked as a spokesperson and poster boy for the craft beer scene in New Zealand. While he has twice held roles on the executive committee of the Brewers Guild of New Zealand, Stu prefers his benevolent dictator role at Yeastie Boys.
