Trans Pacific hopping and a big malt bill equals a massive IPA. The Aussie hop Galaxy has been swapped out for the less nasal Ella, plus more Simcoe brings balance - a truly intercontinental experience.
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.
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 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. Great as a winter warmer or dessert drink.
Resonator IPA is a pale golden India Pale Ale, Double Dry Hopped with Nelson Sauvin & Motueka , with brings notes of aromatic resin & passion fruit.
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.
The first hazy to come out of the Steam Brewery, and it is a cracker. Experimental hop 4337, Galaxy, Riwaka City, Mosaic and Ella hops. Clean but murky, soft but bitter...
Medium bodied, with not quite American Stout hoppiness keeps things very tasty, but also approachable for traditional Stout aficionados.
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.
Our nod to a traditional 16th Century Bavarian Oktoberfest lager (unlike a crips, hoppy German-style Pilsner), this one's all about the malt. Expect soft elegant toast on the nose leading to full-bodied palate with whole meal bread notes hinting of toast. Both smooth & refined with no hop character, the finish is balanced & clean leaving you yearning for another sip.
Ancho chillies with smoked nectarines sit in a delicious banquet of golden malt. Easy to drink, not too spicy, but definitely complex.
A beer cocktail! Fermented with the perfect balance of juicy raspberries, hibiscus flowers and zesty lime juice. This kettle sour is tart and delicious with a signature ruby hue.
Traditional Bavarian wheat beer with a good amount of yeast funk, not banana salad levels.
This beer used to be an unfiltered West Coast IPA, it has now evolved into a delicious soft juicy hazy.
Hailing from a land that has adopted the feijoa as a native, South Cider supplements traditional Pink Lady and Braeburn apples with the bounty of a thousand roadside stalls. Clear amber in colour it comes on crisp and fresh while revelling in the taste and texture of pure feijoa.
A hazy Pale Ale, jam-packed with guava. This party edition delivers a fruity punch and citrus zing.
Japanese style rice lager , but way more flavour than your Tokyo Dry.
Our pick of the Volstead shipment, clean and very Nilzilid in the hops, nicely bitter, yum.
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.
Made with oats and six speciality malts. Easy on the roasted malts and generous with the chocolate. A stout with a wink to a strong brown ale. Perfect to drink in a thunderstorm.
Refreshing and very easy to drink, this black lager gives you the best of both worlds in a cold winter.
Another awesome hazy from Baylands. This one uses the pineapplely trial hop Hort 4337 alongside some other tasty New Zealand hops including Motueka and Riwaka. Loads of grapefruits, pine and tropical fruits aromas over a light hazy malt base.
Satisfying your hop needs with a punch of American flowers but not too much neurotoxin.
Push the boat out across the River Styx with this smooth monster. Malt and Oak wrestle greekly to annihilate your taste buds.
