Non pasteurised beer has more flavour, and is more reliable than bottled beer. The bottling process is also expensive and fiddly, so many great beers never get bottled. Drinking draft beer is the way to taste what the brewer intended.
Hopscotch has imported 1L German made flip top beer bottles, these are sturdy and hold pressure well. We will help you maintain your bottle with replacement rubber washers if you need them.
This beer can last for three to four days in the fridge, for longer term storage, brewery bottled products are more suitable.
Our selection of bottles is under construction, it will be comprehensive.
In the future Hopscotch will stock hops and mill grain for you.
This double IPA has some secret New Zealand hops and some secret U.S hops. Very little alcohol burn for it's percentage. Resinous but not overbearing, tropical fruit flavours and refreshingly mouth cleansing.
Hāpi is Te Reo Maori for hops, and four varieties of hops from Aoteoroa are combined in this bright pale ale to create intense-but-clean hop character. The delicious flavours of this beer betray the fact that it is merely 4.7%. Highly recommended.
The Trip Hop is a lovely sessionable pale ale that contains no rabbit based ingredients. It is hoppy though, using Pacificica, Motueka and Riwaka along with a good measure of specialty malts.
Big hop bomb of an I.P.A from the Garage. Nelson Sauvin and Organic Rakau hops coat your mouth in greasy hop resin and citrus notes. Well balanced with a warming and earthy malt background.
Holy Shit! A new style, first come the really pleasant stone fruits, Apricot, Nectarine, Peach and Melon. Then Boom, INSANE GRAPEFRUITY BITTERNESS!!
It's calculated at 167 IBU, which is mentally bitter, your mouth may dissolve and your hop threshold will go to another reality.
Pacific Jade to bitter, then Pacific Jade, Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe, and Zythos. Nelson Sauvin for the first dry-hop, and Simcoe and Zythos for the second dry-hop.
An American style wheat beer, fairly dry and refreshing, with citrus notes from orange and lemon zest. This recent batch (2018)has more Belgian funk than previous, so the yeast may have been changed.
Brewed and double dry-hopped with NZ, Australian and US hop varieties. Great hop aroma and clean refreshing bitterness.
Beer and ballet - an unusual Pas de Deux. Brewed by Garage Project for the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Hops on Pointe teases the boundaries between split soles and gumboots. Brewed with premium German malts, Nelson Sauvin hops and finished with a champagne yeast, the result is a pale gold lager with a crisp, clean palate, rich tropical fruit aromas and tight champagne bubbles.
This delicious stout has subtle coconut and difficult to discern alcohol warmth, belying its large alcohol percentage. Great as a winter warmer or dessert drink.
Resonator IPA is a pale golden India Pale Ale, that showcases Nelson Sauvin & Motueka hops, with nots of aromatic resin & passion fruit. This special edition beer was originally made for the 2015 west coast IPA challenge at the malthouse.
Luscious American hops revel in delicious solution for your drinking pleasure. Soft bitterness, but balanced.. this is a go to for USA hop hunters.
Billfish is brewed with a boat load of hops including NZ/Aotearoa’s Kohatu and Riwaka, Australian Galaxy, and US Citra and Zythos. Bursting with tropical fruit on a juicy malt base which lets the hops shine. Big flavour that hooks your taste buds.
Took a while of suggesting it, but Urbanaut finally made an unfiltered lager. And it is a good one. Hoppy like a an IPA, refreshing like a lager, cloudy like a cloud...
Apricity is light-brown coloured wheat and oat doppelbock with a creamy fine head. Notes of fruitiness, Christmas cake, Speculaas spices, raisins and plums meet biscuits and roasty aromas. Full-bodied and warming, with a well-balanced and smooth finish.
A refreshing easy to drink pale ale with a rich sweet malt taste this is perfectly offset by the hoppy bitterness of the NZ grown hops. A really solid 5% option that doesn't disappoint.
A slightly less alcoholic version of the world famous Juice Box. Still juicy and murky, still awesome.
Super refreshing, this beer is a sour lager, so less of the taste of wheat some sours have. Great acidity for sour suckers, pulls that lamb chop grease off your teeth in a flash.
Absolutely delicious double IPA brewed using Citra,Simcoe and Nelson Sauvin. The well balanced malt keeps the bitterness in check, but the Wolverine does have some bite.
Motueka and Galaxy hops with a light malt base. An excellent beer (not really bitter enough to be an IPA) more like a tasty hoppy pale ale.
Yellowhead IPA is a sessionable India Pale Ale with bright, exuberantly aromatic, tropical New Zealand hops (including Nelson Sauvin, Moutere, Motueka, and Kahatu) balanced with full-bodied maltiness, perfect for your summer BBQ or your winter S&M Dungeon.
