Innovative homebrew system Pinter has teamed up with Yeastie Boys to re-imagine the New Zealand brewer’s flagship beer, Bigmouth, so that it can be made in drinkers’ homes.
This is Pinter’s first partnership of this kind, reflecting its fast growth since its founding in 2020. It has been named Brightpearl’s fastest-growing online retailer of 2022, and picked up a gold medal at this year’s World Beer Awards.
Bigmouth Remixed is a recipe inspired by the Yeastie Boys’ original pale, unfiltered Bigmouth IPA, but reimagined for the Pinter. Pinter is eager to replicate this business model with other brands.
“This partnership is built on two companies who love breaking new ground,” said Pinter co-founder and chief executive, Ralph Broadbent. “Innovation and product development are really the beating heart of what we do, so this was always a natural step. We couldn’t be more excited about what this means for the future.”
Long before Yeastie Boys was created, founder Stu Mckinlay has always been a passionate member of the homebrewing community and even set up the first New Zealand Home Brewing Awards.
He said: “Remembering my roots, I have always considered Yeastie Boys beers to be somewhat ‘open source’, and I’m only too happy to help homebrewers to recreate them. The Pinter system is a really exciting advance in homebrewing and we’re proud to have Bigmouth available on it!”
