Home Brew Recipe Kit for our version of Shining Peak Brewing Fanny Fantham's lager. This kit is based on the original recipe kindly provided by Shining Peak Brewing

German Style Pilsner. Light and grisp, but with a pleasant malt sweetness. This beer received a Silver Medal at the Brewers Guild of New Zealand Awards in 2019 and another Silver at the 2021 Australian International Beer Awards 

Back when ladies were seen as vaporous, fragile creatures jammed into supportive hosiery, Fanny Fantham was suiting up as part of the first party to climb the pimply peak on the south slope of Mt. Taranaki. It’s known as Fantham's Peak to this day. We’re tipping our hat to Fanny’s alpine ambitions with the German Pilsner style lager.
