Invercargill Brewery has been commended for its innovation at the 2014 Brewers' Guild of New Zealand Beer Awards.
Steve Nally, of Invercargill Brewery, was awarded the Morton Coutts Trophy for Innovation or Achievement for a novel approach to packaging beer. Nally conceived the idea of packaging low-carbonated draught beer in 20 litre bags, to be used in bars with traditional English style hand-pumps.
The awards were held in Wellington last night.
Nelson-based Townshend Brewery took out the top award, New Zealand's Champion Brewery.
