Known for producing  “New world interpretations of old world styles” 8 Wired have multiple shades of very hoppy IPAs, Saisons, Porters and Stouts in their permanent line up and have the biggest barrel aged and sour program in the southern hemisphere.

8-Wired-500ml-Barrel-Aged-Bumaye-Imperial-Stout_1024x1024.png

Style - BA Imperial Stout
ABV - 16.0%
Available - 500ml Bottle

To make Bumaye 8 Wired started out with the baddest imperial stout they have ever brewed, and then added loads of tasty sugars to the fermenter for extra flavour. To smooth out the roughness, the beer was allowed to mellow in Pinot Noir barrels for 3 and a half years. The result is decadent but at the same time beautifully balanced. Let’s rumble!

It’s a rendition of an age old monastery beer, but done the 8 Wired way. Brewed and dry hopped with NZ grown Styrian Golding Hops, fermented with a Belgian yeast and refermented
with Brettanomyces. 8 Wired’s homage to Orval - try them both side by side!

Style - Barrel Aged Sour Red Ale
ABV - 6.7%

Named after spaghetti western royalty, This beer is a love letter to Belgian style kriek. Each bottle contains roughly 200 grams (a fist full) of fresh Marlborough cherries, making it beautifully sour and fruity “go ahead, load up and shoot”.
