When you’re matching a beer with an Anglo-Indian menu that is this authentic, it has to be Pukka alright.
Field & Green is just one year but already the recipient of a restaurant of the the year ‘hat’. And they have recreated Dak Bungalow, a hybrid Anglo-Indian cuisine first created for the British travellers in government guesthouses along the ‘dak’ (mail) route.
To accompany such adventurous cuisine our Pukka India Pale Ale couldn’t be more genuine. The original IPA’s were brewed to mature and improve on the long sea journey to the colonists in India.
So while not quite a six-month journey, we did place our Pukka beer on a boat. No, not on some ‘Boaty McBoatface’ type boat, but on ‘The Lizzie”, which happens to be the oldest surviving racing yacht built in Wellington. Then we sent it on a rollicking journey around Wellington Harbour.
