Black Sands is fresh out of West Auckland. Their Motueka hop based Pils is super fresh and clean, in an old world kind of way..but a bit more punchy.
Maximus used to be bigger, but this is more drinkable at 5.8%. Still mean on the fresh in your face hoppage, and crisp dry finish. It has got to be one of Hallertau's best beers, and leading the charge for the locals.
Bone dry and ultra hoppy Double IPA. Brewed with 80% more hops than the already extremely hoppy HopWired IPA.
Big, juicy American hopped ale from Christchurch. Loads of Citra, loads of malt. Loads of good drinking potential.
Pacific Rim hops- (Riwaka, Motueka, Amarillo, Chinook and Citra) provide a serious smash of fruity goodness for hop bud lovers. Very smooth, approachable IPA that has plenty of malt, but avoids getting jammy.
This beer delivers on the IPA front with a resinous mouthfeel and big hop character with good solid slap o grapefruityness. Find grapefruit, citrus, dank hoppiness, robust pithy bitterness which is not overpowering and a clean dry finish.
This extra, extra pale ale is extra hoppy, and very pale. A dangerous combination of smoothness and booze, American hop fiends rejoice.
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.
Take a really nice oatmeal chocolate stout, add just enough Bhut Jolokia chillies to make it pleasantly warm, then double this amount. (10g/L) Chucking this much chilly into a beer is a dick move. Hope you like/hate it.
This excellent example of the German sour beer is enhanced by the addition of Feijoas. The fruit don't smack you round, rather they lurk in the background. So good.
Layers of lemon, vanilla, cream and a big zesty finish leaves you wanting more. A kettle sour made with lemons from the neighbour's orchard just down the road from the brewery.
The double version of Cassels most famous Milk Stout is intensely rich, strong and malty with a creamy almost velvet texture. A full bodied stout with dark mocha and chocolate aromatics, clean finish and pleasant belly warming power.
Better than the delicious name suggests, could be the best beer in your life this summer.
The unit is our version of NZ Hopped I.P.A. With hints of grapefruit, passion-fruit & spicy citrus, backed up with those hop aromas only found in Aotearoa, it seems a lot for one beer, but it ain't called The Unit for nothing!
The juice is a German-style sour wheat ale, brewed with salt. We sour it in the kettle then ferment it with a clean yeast. Our version is a bit different to the originals as we dry hop it in the fermenter to give it another dimension of flavour. This is a clean tart ale with some lemon and lime flavours.
Brewed with "tropical hops", this is a nice clean brown ale. Do you like a bit of malt with your hops?
The first hazy to come out of the Steam Brewery, and it is a cracker. Experimental hop 4337(now Nectaron), Galaxy, Riwaka, Mosaic and Ella hops. Clean but murky, soft but bitter...
This brown ale is the first spawn from our extensive sour program. It is sour, dry, woody. On the Biohazard tap on request.
Brewed with the Idaho grown, Idaho 7™ hop, which has a flavour profile described as juicy tropical fruits, papaya and grapefruit with big notes of resiny pine.
Traditional Bavarian wheat beer with a good amount of yeast funk, not banana salad levels.
Japanese style rice lager , but way more flavour than your Tokyo Dry.
A big sticky mess of hops and malt to cushion your rainy Covid Days. Brewed with NZ and US hops including;
Hort433, Rakau, Azacca, Sultana, Amarillo.
A hoppy stout, with some bitterness. Good option if you like hops and dark malts.
Fairly big for style, this easy drinking pale ale should be making you say "I do".
This beast is an unfiltered mouthful of an IPA with big tropical fruit and citrus pith flavours and a smooth malt character. Tastes a lot like a big, grungier version of the excellent The Unit IPA.
