A great hop kick & low ABV gives you guilt free summer drinking. Interestingly the lack of confounding variables (alcohol) lets you notice the psychoactive action of the hops.
Smooth, malty and balanced, this ale is tasty, but not domineering. Perfect for gateway beer drinkers or foods that are delicate in nature
Big, juicy American hopped ale from Christchurch. Loads of Citra, loads of malt. Loads of good drinking potential.
True to style fat malt daddy of a red ale, oozing juicy malts with very little bitterness.
The beer that Christchurch based Cassels are best known for, as it is awesome. Not too sweet, nice easy going stout that has a clean crisp bitterness at the end.
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.
Nelson Sauvin is the ringleader in this dry and bitter NZ hop bomb. Lean but not flimsy on the malt, this beer pushes all the right buttons.
Traditional Gose, with coriander seeds and salt. It's salty, got a little wheat but still clean and delicious. Pretty awesome with the kai moana.
Inspired by iconic IPA’s from the West Coast of the USA, think Big Daddy, Sculpin and Ruination. Brewed with juicy Maris Otter malts and loaded with those big name US hops; Centennial, US
Cascade and Amarillo, with a touch of relatively new Idaho 7. Characters include floral, citrus, pine and a touch of black tea.
A baby Belgian, a touch of clove with a juicy clean finish of NZ lemons & zest. This is a great session beer for all occasions.
Cassels Red IPA is full bodied, rich and vibrant. Speciality malts add serious complexity with flavours and aromas including dark fruit, raisin, toast and light caramel, balanced by assertive, crisp hop bitterness and perplexing pine, citrus, lime, stone fruit, floral and tropical characters.
Misty Rocks is a recipe loosely based on Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, a classic brewed with American Cascade Hops. The hop bill was increased, the whirlpool substituted for a hop stand, and the alcohol reduced.
A continuation of the already legendary "old school desserts" series, this one pours muddy brown and a bit creamy. Lactose, loads of cacao and a hint of cherries. Nice rich malt body helps to soften everything up and make it smooth. The bitterness has now softened up nicely, and it's tasting great.
Probably the last of the 2019 fresh hops, this black IPA is based on Moonride (previously Patriot) hopped with fresh Nelson Sauvin. Nicely balanced and a little more hoppy than the original, a really well made fresh hop.
Brewed with a genuine stinky farmhouse yeast from Europe, which provides smooth alcohol, and a funk load of farmhouse odour.
Not very brown looking, more red, but tasted very brown, toasty warm malts and a nice USA hop bite.
Medium bodied, with not quite American Stout hoppiness keeps things very tasty, but also approachable for traditional Stout aficionados.
This all Cascade and Chinook India Xtra Pale Ale , with of a big Cascade dry hop. There is a touch of Kaffir lime left over from some Bru
-Ju, coupled with Grapefruit from the Cascade and some pine and pineapple from the Chinook.
A crisp, clean malt base sets the tone for a combination of American hops that offer a refreshing hit of tropical, citrus and stone fruit aroma to take your breath away and replace it with fruit burps.
This tasty porter is full of fruit and chocolate, but retains a delicate lightness and drinkability.
Delicious, dry and fruity pale ale brewed with American hops and New NZ trail hop 4337. This is a great example of the style.
Smooth and relatively malty, this is the IPA for you if you like hops and malt, but not too much bitterness.
