Dinosaurs may be extinct elsewhere but here in Blue Fridge valley, the Riwakasaurus Rex is still king. A distinct blend of Rakau and Riwaka hops give this pale ale an aroma of mandarin and passion fruit, while a strong backbone of malt finishes in notes of toffee and caramel. Deliciously balanced and sessionable. Absolute dino-mite.

A juicy and ultra-drinkable extra pale ale, using the newly released Nectaron hop, it packs a punch of tropical fruit characteristics with a soft bitterness that makes it so easy to drink. Lots of pilsner malts with a touch of wheat give it a crisp mouthfeel and quenchable dryness.

Don’t let our German Style Wheat Beer fool you! This deliciously refreshing beer is made with all NZ hops and malts, the perfect way to enjoy summer all year round. Sweet As, Bro.

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.

KELP PARTY

ECKLONIAN SEAWEED SOUR 3.9% ABV

Every year the mystical Underwater World of Ecklonia throws the Great Kelp Party, a waving rave where the beverage of choice is this fruity seaweed sour. The fine folks at Quality Seaweeds harvest Ecklonia Radiata Kelp which we use alongside all NZ grown malts and Waimea hops to create a tart yet sessionable brew, with tropical notes and a smooth salinity rounding out the mouthfeel. Kelp yourself to a cold one, and let’s get this party started!

PRETTY TART

RASPBERRY BERLINER 3.8% ABV

Originally meant as a one-off special edition, this Raspberry Sour Wheat Beer proved so popular that we’ve brought it into regular seasonal rotation. Made with all NZ hops and malts, and wild organic raspberries, she’s a smooth drop with a cheeky finish that’ll leave you thinking she’s as pretty as she is tart.

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

INSOMNIAC

COFFEE MILK STOUT 7.3% ABV

Put a hop in your step with the perfect way to start your day. Our delicious “breakfast beer” with organic Single Origin East Timor beans, freshly roasted, and brewed with the finest malts, will wake you up and keep you going. Who said you can’t mix business with pleasure?

LIEBLING

GERMAN HONEY WHEAT 5% ABV

This German style wheat beer is a traditional wheat with a twist; commissioned for exclusive sale at 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.

STICKY PALMS

MANGO PALE ALE 5.5% ABV

Crisp and refreshing like an iceblock on a hot summers day, Sticky Palms slips down your throat as easily as the icy juice drips down your fingers. NZ hops provide an assertive dry undercurrent to balance the fresh mango added to our delicious Pale Ale.
