Hops

All Mata Beers include NZ Hop varieties which are grown under a pest management system that enables them to grow spray free.  NZ hop varieties are highly sought after around the world due to their unique aromatic properties that differ from hops grown in other parts of the world.  We have a lot of fun taste testing and selecting that perfect hop combination when creating each of our beer styles.
