Beer for breakfast anyone? New Zealand’s Moa thinks so.

The Kiwi brewer Moa has started brewing a Breakfast Beer, true story.

Launching in Auckland’s Quay St Café this week, Moa Breakfast is a blend of premium wheat malt, floral Nelson hops and cherries.

Brewer Josh Scott got the idea while on a trip to Auckland. He and his father Allan would sometimes compliment a leisurely breakfast with beer, which got him to thinking. “On occasion people enjoy champagne at breakfast time, so I thought, ‘why not beer?’” says Josh.

Moa Breakfast is a refreshing and fruity lager specifically designed as a breakfast style beer, but can be enjoyed at any time of the day. It has an alcohol content of 5.5%. Like champagne, it is bottle fermented and conditioned and is sealed with a cork, muselet and foil.

The Quay St Café launch of Moa Breakfast is open to all from 7am – 11am, Thursday 7 April, 2011. The beer will be paired with Pain perdu (a posh French toast) with crispy bacon, toasted almonds, caramelised banana and cherry compote, and there is a solid Kiwi rock line-up to entertain the attendees.

Additional Moa Breakfast events are set to be held in Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown over the coming months.
