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.
One of Joe's biggest and baddest, this imperial IPA is stuffed with American hoppy goodness, which is backed up with juicy chewy malts. The excellent balance between these forces gives your tastebuds room for a good spanking.
An American style stout brewed with lots of chocolate malt and U.S Centennial Hops. On the nose you get the citrus from the hops first then the roasty malts. This is not a sweet stout, it's got a solid body but not chewy. You can watch Joe review this beer and burn his mouth out here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xn2gCyrcf20
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. This batch is even better than the last, reduced alcohol to 2.5%, but more body from the addition of oatmeal.
A spicy and bold Texas brown ale brewed with a heady dose of American hops Columbus,Simcoe, habanero chili and prickly pear.
Full on funky wheat beer oozing freaky yeast flavours, banana, cloves and a little bit of barnyard.
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.
Liberty Brewing's The Kush won the prestigious West Coast IPA Challenge 2017. "The malt acts as a stage upon which the hop ballerinas dance" said Geoff Griggs, Head Judge of the Challenge. High praise indeed. Liberty last won this Challenge in 2013 with Knife Party, which is now part of their core range.
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.
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.
Our first crack at making a chocolate stout turned out pretty nice .Then we added passion fruit pulp and just enough Bhut jolokia chillies to make it pleasantly warm, then doubled this amount. (10g/L) Chucking this much chilly into a beer is a dick move. Hope you like 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.
Restrained in both hop and alcohol, but still very satisfying and totally delicious. This IPA quietly goes around winning tastings and awards.
This porter has plenty of bite from the use of classic cascadian hops Cascade, Centennial and Willamette. Avoids being thin with a nice full mouth feel.
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.
If you are a very good brewer, you can make a delicious stout with only 3.6% alc..this highly sessionable black thing has a lovely cold brew coffee and chocolate character. Despite the residual body the beer is dry, moreish and punches well above its weight thanks to the outrageous amount of specialty malt at 40% of the total malt bill..
Better than the delicious name suggests, could be the best beer in your life this summer.
Very cunning use of NZ specialty malts and hops to create a very English tasting IPA.
This is a super dry, refreshing take on the German style of pilsner, light colour, crisp and very consumable.
Light in colour and very dry, hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Citra and Mosaic. Refreshing and very drinkable.
Sour ale with rammed with the magic trio of raspberries, Blackberries and strawberries with a simple savoury touch of sage.
Pineapplely Hops with Pineapplely pineapple. Pretty pleasingly pineappley.
Revolution employed Waipara winemaker Theo Coles to produce this Sauvignon Blanc. Dry, acidic and minerally, it's a good summer option if you like your wine crisp and in the 1000ml format.
Crunch. Clean. Crisp. Refreshing. Bite. Blue skies. Cut grass. Good times. Granny Smith would be rapt with this sublimely cider.
Hoptron is a super fruity American Pale Ale, AKA an APA. With a light body and a medium bitterness, this beer tastes of citrus and stone fruit. Hoptron is a beer that will leave you refreshed... Yet wanting more!
Using wheat, not oats, and American ale yeast, this hazy, hoppy beer is worth a look if you like East Coast IPA's.
Known for sour sours, this one does not disappoint. Clean acidic bite, with just the right level of botanicals.
Inspired by the spirit of the shaka – a gesture of kia ora, mateship and good karma – "Shaka Bro" can translate to 'hello', 'what's up' and 'chur bro’, or ‘let’s have a drink’. Sparkling golden in colour with aroma’s of citrus, peach, and a hint of honey, this lager is crisp, dry, sessionable and very refreshing.
A big American hopped Double IPA. The Big George is hopped with Citra and Ekuanot, giving it a mighty pineapple and citrus tropical hit.
A refreshing, light, hoppy, sour beer inspired by traditional Berliner Weisse ales then remixed with fresh NZ grown cucumbers. Naturally soured by live cultures and hopped with American and New Zealand hops. Cool as a cucumber, dude.
