Emerson's Craft Beer

Brewed with a passion in Dunedin since the nineties, it is the choice of discerning beer drinkers in New Zealand and the world over. 

Bookbinder A wonderfully drinkable interpretation of a classic English ale. Bookbinder is a blend of four malts combined with two classic Nelson grown European hops (Fuggles and Riwaka). The beer pours an attractive reddish brown, with a cream coloured head. Bookbinder has a sweet, perfumey, malt and hop aroma with a soft, malty, fruit and vinous palate that is both full flavoured and refreshing with a long, gently drying finish.

London Porter was Emerson’s first beer. Dark, dry and mellow with some hoppy characteristics, Porter pours a deep brown colour with reddish tints.
The aroma is toasty, with a hint of sweetness and some earthy hop notes. Firm-bodied but not heavy, with a creamy texture, the dryish palate is full of roasted malt, coffeeish notes and a sustained bitterness. Pairs nicely with a blue cheese like Whitestone Windsor.  ABV: 5%

Taieri George Taieri George is named after the most important Emerson of all – Richard’s Dad. Not only was he a founding member of the Taieri Gorge Railway, he was also the brewery’s original Chief Beer Taster. He particularly enjoyed this drop, brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg and Otago clover honey. In his memory,
we release this brew on his birthday. Here’s to you, George.

Identity Crisis A blend of Chardonnay barrel aged saison and fresh saison. Subtle and elegant, spicy and fruity notes from the yeast are intertwined with buttery/oaky notes and a slight tartness from the Chardonnay barrels



The fabulous way to send a craft beer gift. It's a top package to send from the team for a birthday or thank you to the boss or coach. A family gift for Dad or Grandad to let them know how special they are. You could add a classy bottle opener to make it even better (check out our Something Extra collection for more ideas).
