Go head to head with Kelly Ryan from Fork Brewcorp

Think you've got what it takes to brew a beer as good as the person who came up with the beer? Our CLONE WARS series allows you to do just that.

In each case, we have worked with the commercial brewer to produce an official clone recipe for their beer. And because we are an off-license as well as a homebrew shop, you can buy the recipe - AND the beer - and see how well your clone matches up to the original commercial beer.

This has only been possible thanks to the generosity of Kelly Ryan from Fork Brewcorp.

You can check out an interview with Kelly on his lockdown experience - and tips and tricks on how to brew all of these beers - on our YouTube channel.

    Dominated by industry favourites, Riwaka and Nelson Sauvin, with a little something extra thrown in to bring the hops together. Classic Sauvignon gooseberry and a little ribena-like blackcurrant. Sweet malt that hints at fragrant bush-honey, a solid minerality and a light citrus zing on the back palate.

    This beer is insanely delicous and a must try if you love hoppy New Zealand Pale Ales.
