Hawkshead Brewery // ITI

The little brother.

Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley, England brews a sessionable pale ale called ITI. So, where’d the name come from?

“Iti” means little in Maori, the language of indigenous New Zealanders, as this beer is the “little brother,” or lower alcohol version, of the brewery’s New Zealand Pale Ale (NZPA).

What’s a New Zealand Pale Ale? You guessed it, this beer uses loads of New Zealand hops – Nelson Sauvin, Motueka and Green Bullet varietals.

New Zealand hops have the characteristic citrusy and resiny notes of American hops with additional stone fruit, tropical fruit and white grape aromas and flavors.
