Celebrating Hop Harvest 2023 with Freestyle

Helios Brewing are very excited to collaborate with our mates Freestyle Hops from New Zealand, to create a beer that celebrates Hop Harvest 2023.

We've named the beer 'Demeter', after the Ancient Greek goddess of the harvest. A fitting title for this DDH Hazy IPA, that will feature plenty of freshly harvested NZ hops!

Freestyle Hops in New Zealand.

This double dry hopped all NZ IPA delivers massive stone fruit and tropical notes thanks to a 20g/L hopping rate using Rakau, Waimea and NZ Cascade. Demeter DDH NZ IPA is a straight up juice bomb with a full, soft mouthfeel and restrained bitterness. 

The beer will go to can in mid April and be available in a strictly limited number of cases. Kegs will also be available on tap at Helios, and selected venues around Brisbane.

Keep an eye out for our official launch event, set to take place on Friday April 14 at Helios. You can also check out the video from the brew day, featuring our head brewer Jake.
