Koru - Limited Time Bottled Beer | Great Newsome Brewery



Undeniably, the Eggbeater is New Zealand’s greatest creation. But coming in with the humble silver medal would be my Great-Uncle Alastair. Rugby-loving, good with machines, an accent stronger than steel; the man is pretty much the Kiwi. And we love him for it! So much so, in fact, that we’ve gone and made a special beer for him: Koru4.7%.

Don’t worry: We mortals can drink it too.

The Taste

Kicking off your pint, Koru gently introduces you to a completely unique hoppy flavour. You’ll get modest citrusy, zesty overtones held down with well-rounded notes of peach and plum. We’ve even had reports of — wait for it — Kiwi!

New Zealand’s silver fern; a classic Koru.

This balance comes from a special blend of traditional British and New Zealand hops. The light malt base tops off Koru and gives it a smooth bitterness. The Beer takes its name from the Māori word for spiral, and we took that as a cue to make a beer that’ll just ensnare your taste-buds. It’s the Wai-iti – Wonder.


Koru will be available by the pint in early-March from all good pubs. Check with your landlord to see when.

As for bottles: We’ll have bottled the Māori-Marvel by early April. This is the first time we’ve bottled Koru, and we’re really hoping you like it as much as we do. If you’re absolutely itching for a taste of these limited-edition bottles, you might want to pick some up from our Brewery-Shop.
