The Good George's take on a session IPA, this beer showcases some of their favourite US and Australian hops. Lower in ABV than their regular IPA but delivering just as much hoppy goodness in a beautifully balanced beer.
Good George came to life after a bunch of Hamiltonian friends got together and decided, after years in hospitality and brewing, it was time to create their own craft beer brand. Their main motivation was to show people what great beer can be, convert drinkers from the norm and show them how to enjoy fantastic beer. Their belief was that beer can be so much better and more rewarding.
Small problem though, they had no idea how to brew beer. Not put off lightly, they decided to open Hamilton’s first independent pub, dedicated to craft beer from New Zealand brewers. The idea gathered momentum in 2011 when the former St George's Church in an industrial area of Hamilton was discovered that offered a perfect mix of location, character and potential. Most importantly, it helped give Good George its brand name.
Impressed with the set up, international Beer Judge Brian Watson joined as a brewer and the brewery was born. A few years on and the brewery has expanded outdoors from the original premise – with 14 new tanks added and now days the bottling, canning and packaging is done on site. Brewery tours are available, and the Dining Hall serves brunch, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Good George is more than just a brewery, it is a complete hospitality and beer lover’s experience. The Good George is New Zealand-owned, brews world-class beer and cider, fresh and original, and proudly brewed in Hamilton.
