Bays Brewer y
Having won the supreme award at New
Zealand’s largest home brew competition
in 2010, Nelsonian Dale Holland decided to
make his beers available to the wider pub-
lic. From recipes designed and perfected at
home, Dale now crafts a range of four clas-
sic styles; his Supreme Gold Medal winner
Belgian Pale Ale, American Amber Ale, ESB
and Doppelbock. This summer Dale’s intro-
ducing a pilsner, which will be available in keg
only and if popular, could become permanent,
so get down to your local and give it a try. Dale
has also moved to a 330ml bottle, as well as his
popular 500ml, and riggers will be back in the
New Year. You can try Dale’s beer at Monaco
Kitchen, The Freehouse, Rhythm & Brown,
Grape Escape, 3 Rooms, Hopgoods, East St
Cafe, Devilles, Bel Aire, New World Nelson,
Fresh Choice Richmond, Liquorland Nelson
and Liquor King.
If it is craft beer you seek then you cannot go
past Bays Brewery and its wide range of qual-
ity Beers, Ciders and Real Tasty Drinks (RTD’s).
Passionate about true, hand crafted beverages,
Bays has a long history of making quality prod-
ucts dating back to 1993.
The Bays crew use only the most traditional
and natural brewing methods (meaning no
sugar, chemicals, or preservatives added.) Each
beverage within their wide array of award win-
ning products offers its own unique character
and emphasis on quality.
Brews such as Bohemian Pilseners, English
style India Pale Ales, and Bavarian Doppelbocks
are just a few of the hand crafted beers Bays
produce, not to mention some of the signature
classics such as Gold Lager, Draught and Dark.
Can’t get enough? Try Bays true English style Dry
Cider which uses Nelson’s own apples as a base.
Visit the brewery to find out more about
Bays, pick up a rigger or try their beers on tap
