A beer-y good place: Wigram Brewing Co


Beer Lingo 101: what’s in a ‘fillery’? Well beer of course, lots of beer.

A fillery is somewhere you go to ‘fill’ your riggers, half Gs, growlers, or fancy double wall vacuum insulated stainless steel beer hydro flask with, you guessed it, fresh cold beer!  At Wigram’s Craft Beer Fillery it’s all about beer; lagers, pilsners, pale ales, wheat beers, honey ales, scotch ales, porters, stouts, ciders – whatever your thirsty little heart desires lies before you waiting to be sipped, quaffed and savored at your place.

Having 10 taps pouring its award-winning beer fresh from a tank, and likely to be fresh from fermentation, carbonation and kegeration, a fresher beer you are not likely to find.  Check out the website for weekly updates of beers on tap and opening dates for Wigram’s Satelite Craft Beer Filleries at Shirley and Hoonhay.

So, if the plethora of craft beer labels on offer in supermarkets and bottle stores has got your head spinning and your beer-buds drooping, fly by Wigram’s Craft Beer Fillery for tap tastings, brewer’s beer wisdom and even a friendly crack at some food matching advice.

With sumptuous darks and their rich, malty, earthy flavours that add such depth to stews, BBQ marinades and even chocolate cakes and puddings.
Chocolate notes, brought out by the complex dark beers, balancing sweetness with malty, nutty flavours, dark ales pair well with cheeses. Yes, even baby cheeses love beer.

If you can’t pick up your favourite winter supplies from your local New World Supermarket. If it’s too cold and the snow drifts are keeping from leaving the warm fire, then if you’re in the Christchurch Metropolitan area, email them at sales@wigrambrewing.co.nz or phone 03-343 4493 for a local courier to deliver to your door.
I’m sure when you’re cooking with beer this good, you’re in for some great meals but I’m pretty sure if you put aside a pint or six to drink with your scrumptious meal, that will be great too!
