Our Beers

CORE RANGE

SWEET AS

GERMAN WHEAT BEER 5% ABV

A lightly hopped wheat beer with a delicate banana aroma true to the style, this beer has a cloudy and straw-like appearance due to the high percentage of wheat in the brewing process. Definitely a quaffable summer beer.

RIWAKASAURUS REX

SESSION IPA 5.3% ABV

This sessionable IPA is made with rakau hops and heaps of riwaka hops to give it a delightful passionfruit aroma and mandarin flavour. A good strong malt backbone finishes with notes of toffee and caramel.

SALTY SEA DOG

WHITE IPA 5.3% ABV

Imagine if a wheat beer met an IPA and they had a baby. Smooth, full-bodied, golden in colour and thirst-quenching, with a delicious hoppy finish. The Nelson Sauvin hops give this white IPA wonderful wine-like characteristics. A must-try for any hop head.

SEASONALS

RHINO CHASER

ORGANIC PALE ALE 5% ABV

A rhino chaser is a surfing term for a large surfboard made for chasing big waves. We used organic pilsner malt to give balance to the big citrusy aroma and flavour of the cascade hops. This light-bodied and easy to drink pale ale is the perfect refreshment after some big wave adventures.

THE TEMPEST

OATMEAL STOUT 4.2% ABV

This deliciously dark stout is full-bodied, smooth and bitter. Laced with hints of caramel and chocolate, with a touch of coffee to finish. Surprisingly easy to drink, even for dark beer naysayers.

THE OTHER WOMAN

IRISH RED 4% ABV

A caramel and toffee-enriched red ale made with dark crystal and redback malts to provide delicious malt character. Fuggles hops provide a soft floral aroma to accompany a creamy mouthfeel and a bittersweet finish that makes it easy to drink, any time.

NON-ALCOHOLICS

THE LOCAL GINGER

NON-ALCOHOLIC GINGER BEER

Made with malt from the brewing process, this ginger beer has a strong ginger kick that’s backed up by cayenne pepper for some extra spice. Hints of cinnamon, clove and caramel help to balance the fiery heat of our local ginger.

SPECIAL RELEASES

LIEBLING

GERMAN HONEY WHEAT 5% ABV

This German-style wheat beer is a traditional wheat with a twist, made in collaboration with Honey Bear Restaurant. We took our Sweet As, and added toffee malt from Gladfield and locally-sourced honey. The honey is added mid-fermentation to maintain complexity and keep the honey flavour subtle to avoid it being overly sweet.
