Hop Rocker is Mac's pilsener, a full-bodied naturally brewed beer with a full complement of New Zealand and the world's best hops for complexity.
Mac's began making naturally brewed beer in 1981. The unique striped bottle the beer comes in today is a legacy of the cider bottles inherited when taking over over the building. The packaging represents the style of the Mac’s family, exuding personality and presenting the Mac’s story in a unique and interesting way. Mac’s Hop Rocker was launched in 2006, and in the years following has won two Silvers at the Brew NZ awards and a gold at the Australian International Beer Awards in 2008.
Hop Rocker is hoppy enough to match up to a spicy curry, but well balanced enough to also remain very refreshing and drinkable. The full citrus aromas and bitter notes from the generous hopping add a touch of botanical exoticism.
Hop Rocker's citrus and fruity wine-like aroma make it the perfect complement for spicy or rich herby tomato dishes. Try it out with Indian snacks like Samosas or Thai curries, as Hop Rocker can take on spices like cumin, and chilli without its flavours getting lost in the burn.
