The sun was out for a most enjoyable Pacific Beer Expo (PBE) in Wellington, New Zealand. A good crowd was in attendance supping on a great range of beers. A highlight of the day was a tasting session of three brews by Bryan Baird of Baird Brewing, in Japan. There will be more from The Thirstyboys on the PBE in the coming days. Pictured below is Matutu Mai (5.0%) – a lager from the from the Cook Islands, brewed with German Pilsner malt and four hops.
