Since New Zealand is a nation of pie lovers, Carlsberg has partnered with Heaven Scent Food Co to give the good old kiwi steak and cheese pie a bit of an upgrade. Carlsberg has created a mouth-watering recipe that uses grass-fed Angus beef, marinated in a special blend of herbs and spices. That is then slow cooked in a Carlsberg stock and a medley of summer vegetables. The deliciously buttery, flakey savoury short pastry is made with Carlsberg’s malted barley, and – to ensure no beer ingredient is left out – there’s even yeast extract hidden under the Emmental cheese that sits on top.

Pie and beer lovers will have four days to experience the kiwi pie at a pop-up Carlsberg pie bar in Auckland’s Imperial Lane. The pop-up pie bar opens from Tuesday 12 December through to Thursday 14 December. A limited number of 1,000 pies will be available.
