Beer shouldn't be bland, full of chemicals, mass produced and boring.
Nor should it be hard, pretentious or scary. Exploring and drinking beer
should be enjoyable, simple and really rewarding.

Our 'geographically confused' Pilsner has a combination of new and old world hops, exhibited by fruit, subtle zest and a grassy herbaceous character.

Bronze: 2017 Brewers Guild Awards
Is it hoppy enough? This beer is the bigger brother to our IPA with bigger malt base, more alcohol and bitterness, and double the dry hop addition. Finishing bitter yet well-bodied, this unfiltered beer will tempt you in for another pint.

SMALL WONDER PALE ALE

2.5%
PALE STRAW
WHITE GRAPES, PASSIONFRUIT, CITRUS
CRISP, REFRESHING, TROPICAL
Little can, huge taste. We named this guy Small Wonder because he breaks all the rules around what a low alcohol beer should taste like. He may not have a lot of weight behind him but he can pack a punch, like that weedy kid you tried to push around at intermediate school who ended up owing you in front of all your friends. Don’t judge a book by its cover, and never judge a beer by its number. Available at Good George Bars.

LIGHT, MALTY, SWEET
Bronze: 2019 Brewers Guild Awards
Gold & Champion British Style: 2017 New World Beer & Cider Awards
Brewed with a classic English bitter in mind. This beer is about rich, caramel malts, balanced with a dash of colonial hops. The Hard Workers beer, we’ll let you have a couple. Available ON TAP at Good Bars.

STOUT

ACE OF SPADES BLACK
CHOCOLATE, CARAMEL, VANILLA
ROASTINESS, CHOCOLATE
A classic Irish style dry stout with a liberal addition of good ol’ porridge! Rich, dark, creamy and smooth. Available ON TAP at Good Bars.

4.2%
LIGHT GOLDEN STRAW, BRIGHT
LIME, CITRUS, FLORAL HOP AROMA
LIGHT IN BODY
Bronze: 2019 Brewers Guild Awards
We have made a beer that is easy drinking, but still holds a full hop aroma. We used less traditional hops than our pilsner to deliver a more experimental hop aroma that leans more towards citrus and floral smells.

HOPTIMISTIC IPA

4.9%
GOLDEN & BRIGHT
MANGO, PASSIONFRUIT, PINE HOP AROMA
FULL BODY SWEETNESS, SLIGHT BITTERNESS
Silver: 2019 Brewers Guild Awards
We’ve reined in our original IPA to make it a bit more friendly and approachable. Much the same as our most popular beer but with more malt sweetness and slightly less bitterness. This is a seriously tasty brew and very well balanced.

black ipa

6.2%
MIDNIGHT BLACK
CITRUS, HERBS, LIGHT TOFFEE
RICH COFFEE, SMOOTH, LINGERING PINE
Silver: 2019 Brewers Guild Awards
In most countries the colour black means sadness and loss but in New Zealand it’­s more about patriotism and excitement (except in 1991, 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2007 - those years had a heap of sadness and loss).

Jousting Sticks

8.4%
PALE TO LIGHT GOLD
US HOPS, CITRUS ZEST & OVER-RIPE MANGOES
RESINY, CITRUS, GRAPEFRUIT, PINE
This is a perfect beer to drink when you are on TradeMe checking out the price of a Jousting Stick. Depending on the condition though you wouldn’t want to pay more than $250. Otherwise tell him he’s dreamin!

Smashed Blueberry Beer

3.7%
DEEP ROGUE, TENDING TO PURPLE
BLUEBERRIES AND FRUITS OF THE FOREST
INITIAL BERRY SWEETNESS WITH A REFRESHING TARTNESS
Take yourself on a flavour journey. This beer contains our award winning blend of smashed local blueberries blended into a crisp and refreshing kettle soured beer. Perfectly balanced and heavily fruited with a lightly soured taste and intense berry flavour.
AVAILABLE IN 6 PACK CANS IN DECEMBER

SUMMER CITRUS HAZY IPA

3.7%
SUNSET GOLD, CREAMY WHITE HEAD
JUICY, ORANGE, MANDARIN, NOTES OF PINE
GRIPPINGLY BITTER, SILKY TEXTURE WITH A TOUCH OF MALT FLAVOUR
This is our beer for serious hop heads who aren’t afraid of bitterness. Served hazy with a gorgeous citrus fruit perfume exuding orange peel and mandarins. The texture is silky smooth from the oats used in the mash. The bitterness creeps up on you though and you are left with a lingering smooth aftertaste.
AVAILABLE IN SQUEALERS IN DECEMBER

CIDERS

DORIS plum cider

4.5%
A SEDUCTIVE MAGENTA
PLUM, APPLE, GRAPE
SWEET, REFRESHING, TART
Bronze: 2019 Brewers Guild Awards
Trophy: 2018 Brewers Guild Awards
Silver: 2018 New World Beer & Cider Awards
Bronze: 2017 New World Beer & Cider Awards
All the GOODness of our popular cider married up with locally sourced Doris Plums. Hints of plum & fruit, with sweet and sour taste, makes this one dangerously refreshing.

EXTRA DRY APPLE cider

4.5%
SHARP GOLDEN YELLOW
WINE LIKE, GRANNY SMITH APPLE
DRY, CRISP & REFRESHING
Broze: 2019 Brewers Guild Awards
Gold: 2018 New World Beer & Cider Awards
If this was a wine you’d say it was “anhydrous” but it’s a cider so we’ll avoid the fancy language and simply tell you that it’s very refreshing. Like a slice of cold green apple on a hot day, our extra dry cider is the crisp treat you didn’t know you needed until somebody offered it to you. It’s the first swim of the summer, the cold shower after a 10k run. But don’t come looking for sweetness, you won’t find it here.

SCARLETT peach cider

4.5%
PALE, GOLD, LIGHT
DELICATE SCARLETT PEACH AND APPLE
SWEET, SLIGHTLY TART, RIP, JUICY
People's Choice: 2018 Nelson Cider Festival
Gold: 2018 New World Beer & Cider Awards
Bronze: 2018 Brewers Guild Awards
Gold: 2017 NZ Cider Awards
Silver: 2017 Brewers Guild Awards
‘Moo-vin’ to the country, gonna drink a lot of peaches – the presidents of the USA nailed it with this catchy brainworm of a lyric, which we’ve only slightly mangled to make it sound like they were singing about this cider. It’s made with juicy Scarlett O’Hara peaches, and brings you all the summer fun of eating a peach, minus the tooth-chipping stone and all that creepy fur.

Rose Cider

4.5%
LUMINOUS PINKY ORANGE BLUSH
STRAWBERRY WITH HINTS OF APPLE & LIME
SLIGHTLY SWEET, SPARKLING WITH TART STRAWBERRY BALANCE
Call of the search: you’ve found your summer drink. While others are fumbling with corks and serrated caps you’ll be half way through a glass of this beautiful Rosé Cider

PASSIONFRUIT CIDER

4.5%
PALE YELLOW, CRYSTAL CLEAR
PASSIONFRUIT & APPLE
SWEET, TART, JUICY
It’s here our new spring release cider. Hoorah! This time we’re taking you on a tropical taste experience. We took our classic cider and warm conditioned with an incomprehensible amount of passionfruit pulp. Tart and juicy with an aromatic hit of tropical passionfruit perfectly balanced with apple sweetness. This one’s for kicking back and relaxing. Cheers!
