Southstar Brewing is the cuckoo brewing brand of beer specialist and brewer Kieran Haslett-Moore.
Achievements so far include:
– Bronze Medal at the 2012 BGNZ Beer Awards for the Kereru Brewing Co collaboration Fruits of Jupiter , blogger, Yorkshireman, and barman extraordinaire Dan Hargreaves described it as tasting “like a Christmas old peculiar mkII”
– Sceptred Warrior was judged to be victor at the inaugural Malthouse Old World IPA Challenge. The judges described it as being “a big British IPA” with a nose reminiscent of“tangerines on steroids.” Notes of “proper English marmalade” were enjoyed, as was the “bitter, astringent, cleansing finish.” While the Sceptred Warrior was “clearly strong”, it was also “hugely drinkable.”
