The caravan on the beach. The tractor pulling a dingy. It all just makes you want to pop one open and dig your feet in the sand. Bach Brewing was born of a combined love of quality beer and the New Zealand coastline. Owner Craig Cooper had bought shares in the Limburg Brewery and created some recognized brews, but ultimately put the project on ice until 2013, when he returned to New Zealand with his family to bring Bach Brewing out of hibernation. Since then, Cooper and crew have been consistently turning out a bunch of great beers. Within no more than a few years, Bach has gone on to establish itself as a top-quality brewing enterprise.
From the refreshing levity of the Beachstone Pilsner to the brooding depth of the Crayporter, there’s a little something for everyone. Some of the Bach beers are good hearted, true to style brews, while others get crafty with hop-loaded or specialty styles. Summer is coming… eventually; so now’s as good a time as any to get familiar with the range. It might not be tog-time yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a Bach.
