Gavin and Annika Meiklejohn met in a brewpub in Canada before traveling the world together and finally settling down in New Zealand. It was there, while working as a chef, that Gavin began home brewing in their garage in Christchurch. After friends visiting them in New Zealand would ask why they couldn’t drink beer this good back in Scotland, it was a sign to move home and go professional.
In April 2010 they set up a ten barrel brewery in a disused dairy facility, and the Tempest story begun. Tempest brewery has gone on to win countless awards both locally, nationally, and internationally. They have shipped their beer all around the world to be enjoyed, and even made the Rate Beer Top 100 best breweries in the world list.
Local Scottish barley comes together with American hops to create a unique spin on the classic American IPA. Rich aromas of pine resin, grapefruit zest, light golden biscuit malt notes, and dank herbal notes come together in this bitter, complex, and balanced West Coast IPA.
Characterized by floral, fruity, citrus-like, piney or resinous American-variety hop character, the West Coast IPA beer style is all about hop flavour, aroma and bitterness. Local Golden Promise malt provides a clean but textured base that allows the Chinook, Citra, Centennial, and Columbus hops to shine through with bracing clarity and intensity.
