"We're really happy with the outcome. It's been available now since last weekend but it's been available on tap at selected restaurants and bars in the past few weeks and has had a wonderful reception," he says. He adds that it's perfect with summer barbecues, especially to accompany light meats such as fish and chicken, sushi or Mexican food.
