Our Brews

Our beer is inspired by the legendary Kiwi can-do mentality and fellow craft brewers who have dared to challenge the masses and show us all that beer is no longer “just beer”!  Expect unique brews, expect ingenuity in flavour.

Saison Sauvin

Saisons have been around for ages. Traditionally brewed by Belgian and French farmers to provide refreshment during harvest.

Saeson (Chardonnay Barrel and Brettanomyces Aged)

A saison brewed to what I would expect old world ales to have tasted like, with a new world hop twist.

The Big Smoke

We’ve taken our best porter recipe and added a good measure of that same Bamberg Rauchmalz. The smoke mingles beautifully with the rich, dark roasted chocolate flavours of the porter without being overpowering

SUPER CONDUCTOR

Bone dry and ultra hoppy Double IPA. Brewed with 80% more hops than our already extremely hoppy HopWired IPA.

Mighty Imperial Ale

My idea of a strong ale was brewed with loads of malt, hops, jaggery and a touch of manuka smoke.

 

BUMAYE

"How far can we take it?" This is a question I find myself asking rahter often. The conception of BUMAYE was one of those moments.

Grand Cru 2011

Grand Cru 2011 started out as The Sultan.

Semiconductor

IPAs are great but sometimes you just don't want the amount of alcohol that comes with most of the good ones. In this spirit we brewed Semiconductor.

Tall Poppy

This is an ale that is not afraid of standing tall among other great beers. The intense, sharp and fruity hoppiness is backed by its complex, caramel-like malty structure. Big, yet refreshing.

Fresh HopWired

A fresh (wet hopped) version of our flagship IPA, HopWired. Brewed to the same recipe but with fresh hop cones straight from the vine. Needless to say this is a very limited release.

C4 Double Coffee Brown Ale

In my opinion, coffee rivals beer for the title of "greatest beverage in the world". I often say that I would rather give up beer than coffee.

iStout

Beware, this is a BIG beer. Brimming with luscious roasted coffee and chocolate malt flavours which are balanced by a brisk bitterness and bold freshness from the hops.

Hopwired IPA

We're pretty sure HopWired is the first bottled new world India Pale Ale made with NZ grown pale ale malt and 100% unique NZ hops
