Fokofpolisiekar to launch third craft beer in New Zealand

2015-05-12 14:52

Cape Town – It seems like a busy year ahead for the boys from Fokofpolisiekar...

The band successfully launched the Antibiotika India Pale Ale in March, but they are not stopping there. They announced on Tuesday that they are heading for New Zealand and will release the Hemel op die Platteland Amber Ale at the end of May while July will see the release of the Monoloog in Stereo EP vinyl.

Fokofpolisiekar will release their third craft beer in a series of four on 26 May. Hemel op die Platteland Amber Ale, will be available to order from, along with Dagdronk Blonde Ale and Antibiotika India Pale Ale that are already on sale.

Hemel Op Die Platteland Amber Ale is infused with Rooibos which makes for a unique and refreshing tasting experience.

Beer lovers can look forward to the release of Skyn(Heilig) Weiss beer in September.

Fokofpolisiekar rocking New Zealand

For the first time since 2010 Fokofpolisiekar will leave the country as an entity to tour to another country. They are taking their revered brand of rock ‘n roll to the Kings Arms Tavern in Auckland on 28 May.

The hard rock band took a chance and recorded an EP way different from their previous two releases: As Jy Met Vuur Speel Sal Jy Brand and Lugsteuring. The mostly acoustic driven sound proved to be a hit and showcased the bands diversity from their previous punk rock sound.

Ten years later Fokofpolisiekar will be commemorating a decade of the Monoloog in Stereo by releasing a limited edition vinyl reproduction of the classic EP in July 2015. The vinyl will be available at shows and from Fokofpolisiekar’s website.
