The brandwas renamed in 1990 by Ward's name remains on the label. Each batch is individually crafted in authentic copper vessels and combines the finest Canterbury malt, pure water fed from the Southern Alps and choice Nelson hops to create a full bodied, refreshing beer that truely captures the taste of the region.

Canterbury Draught is a malty beer balanced with Nelson hops and rounded out with a hint of sweetness. This is a beer with body and flavour while remaining easy drinking.

Canterbury Draught is ideal with delicately flavoured meats such as pork, chicken and of course Canterbury lamb with minted potatoes.
