Back in the day, Tuatara's US supply of APA hops went up in smoke, literally. So rather than inciting a riot, they turned to some home grown ones as a temporary fix. The result? The evolution of a new style, an Aotearoa Pale Ale to rival its American counterpart. With citrus flavours and full hop finish, the result was Kapai – which means, it’s all good.
Embracing the 100% kiwiness of our Aotearoa Pale Ale, Tuatara have recently renamed this brew as kAPAi, encapsulating the true character of the beer.
