OUR BREWS

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.

Silver: 2018 New World Beer & Cider Awards Bronze: 2018 Brewers Guild Awards
We did it! We bottled spring. Remove the cap and you’ll almost see the sunshine pouring out. This very drinkable extra pale ale will remind you of mangoes, lychees and other tropical fruits you can’t grow in NZ right now but give climate change a few years and who knows? So bottoms up. When we’re all waist deep in water you’ll be sorry you didn’t drink more good beer while you could..

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.

East Coast IPa

6.4%
HAZY PALE GOLD
ZESTY CITRUS, TROPICAL FRUIT & PINE
RESIN, PITHY CITRUS, TROPICAL NOTES
Silver: 2018 Brewers Guild Awards
East Coast IPA is a nice hazy juice bomb of a beer. The beer is unfiltered to maintain hop flavour, which also makes it hazy and opaque, and will mean sediment build up in the bottom of squealer bottles. This is totally normal, and you just need to gently roll the squealer bottle on its side to rouse and redistribute the sediment before drinking.

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.

CARAMEL, TANGELO, HERBAL, CHOCOLATE

Gold & Champion British Style: 2017 New World Beer & Cider Awards

CIDERS

BLACKBERRY Cider

FLORENTINE RED
BLACKBERRIES, SWEET
TART, RICH BERRY FINISH
Bronze: 2018 New World Beer & Cider Awards
If you like blackberries but don’t like prickles, this cider is for you. We sent our brewers deep into the brambles searching for the darkest, plumpest berries and several hours later they emerged, covered in deep scratches and berry juice and ready to turn their heaving basket of fruit into something wonderful. Hey, there’s no need for you to feel bad, sometimes love hurts. Now drink up, or all that pain will be for nothing.

EXTRA DRY APPLE cider

4.5%
SHARP GOLDEN YELLOW
WINE LIKE, GRANNY SMITH APPLE
DRY, CRISP & REFRESHING
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.

FEIJOA cider

4.5%
DANDELION YELLOW
SOUR FEIJOA LOLLY
SWEET, JUICY WITH A LITTLE TANG
Bronze: 2018 New World Beer & Cider Awards
If you’ve ever owned a feijoa tree you’ll know it’s a feast or a famine. For 11 months each year your tree does almost nothing, then one day in autumn it suddenly rains fruit and half of them end up either spoiling on the ground or, worse, getting shared with people in your office. Well not this year. We’ve used the best of our annual harvest in this incredible new cider. Sure, feijoas aren’t for everyone, but the rest of us are happy to drink your share.

A SEDUCTIVE MAGENTA
PLUM, APPLE, GRAPE
SWEET, REFRESHING, TART
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.

SCARLETT peach cider

4.5%
PALE, GOLD, LIGHT
DELICATE SCARLETT PEACH AND APPLE
SWEET, SLIGHTLY TART, RIP, JUICY
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
