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.
A really nice NZ hop focused pale ale, fruity, refreshing and fun to imbibe.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Crunch. Clean. Crisp. Refreshing. Bite. Blue skies. Cut grass. Good times. Granny Smith would be rapt with this sublimely cider.
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?
This brown ale is the first spawn from our extensive sour program. It is sour, dry, woody. On the Biohazard tap on request.
Japanese style rice lager , but way more flavour than your Tokyo Dry.
Simcoe, Mosaic and Galaxy to give pineapple and passion fruit with a hint of pine. Very low bitterness.
Mosaic and Citra hopped, easy going and juicy pale ale.
Delicious and smooth stout brewed with coco husks to add extra chocolate.
Nice and dry, quite bitter, hoppy but restrained and drinkable (reminds me of a Thornbridge beer).
Chocker full of Simcoe & Chinook hops, this IPA is like drinking fresh squeezed juice without the chunks. Full bodied with big sassy notes of oranges, mangos, and candied fruit.
5th release from the MMXX Series, Amarillo Hazy IPA.
Cassels beers always have great malt profile, this helps this ale to be quite light in alcohol but not in body or satisfaction.
A tart, refreshing sour ale bursting with mangoes and blueberries. Kettle soured with Lactobacillus plantarum and fermented with a clean American ale yeast.
