Our Free Rider is a classic Bohemian style pilsner with a few tweaks, this tasty beverage has all the attributes to bring it up close and personal with its heritage. We use traditional Pilsner malts, plenty of Saaz hops and German lager yeast. We ferment this for up to two months at low temperatures to allow the lagering process to do its thing. Our Free Rider Session Pilsner is a perfect match for a hard days work, drink it cold as heck! FYI: Lager is a type of beer conditioned at low temperature and is the most widely consumed and commercially available style of beer in the world. As well as maturation in cold storage, most lagers are also distinguished using a "bottom-fermenting" yeast that also ferments at relatively cold temperatures.
What can we say, our Bouquetin IPA is a magical balance of maltiness and sweetness, it’s citrus aromas perforate every drop finishing up with a crisp not too overbearing bitterness. This fine brew wouldn’t be the same without a huge amount of Citra dry-hopping just after primary fermentation, it’s magical and totally worthy of its namesake the mighty wanderer of the high glacial alps. We are proud of our Bouquetin, every, last drop of it. More Information: http://allaboutbeer.com/beer_style/india-pale-ale/ https://www.craftbeer.com/craft-beer-muses/why-are-ipas-so-popular
A classic, rich English malt base with a bunch of my favourite hops makes this cheeky beverage one of our best sellers. Balanced in the American style, not too sweet and not overly caramelised makes this brew one of our hidden treasures.
Being born and raised in New Zealand, one of the first things on the agenda when I started this brewery was to brew a salute to the wonderful hops that are being grown under the South Pacific sun back home, the top of the South Island in Nelson to be precise. Our Sunny-Side Up is a damn tasty treat, its hazy-orange and gold colour is derived from an addition of malted rye which also adds a smooth silkiness and a slight bit of spice to the mix. Deep citrus and tropical fruits in abundance are forefront with a mellow white grape and bitter-sweet finish. Chur chur. FYI: At the centre of a good beer lies quality aromatic hops and, as luck would have it, the early English and German settlers to Nelson found the region perfectly situated to grow the perfect crop for the bitter brew. Nelson and is now the hop centre of New Zealand...Hops are the essential ingredient that gives beer its bitter...
Brewed as a challenge, our Black Coq French Porter original recipe was designed to find the perfect balance of a quaffable dark roast and crisp finish for all year-round drinking. Our Porter is just that, light on hop aroma yet with a decent amount of bitterness, this with the subtle coffee and barely there chocolate notes makes this brew that is not just a winter beer, this is a beauty for all seasons. FYI: Porter is a style of beer that was developed in London in the early eighteenth century. It was well-hopped and dark in appearance due to the use of brown malt. The name originated due to its popularity with street and river porters. The popularity of porter was significant, and it became the first beer style to be brewed across the world. The only main difference many brewers still agree on between Stout and Porter is the kind of malt that should be used to brew each type of beer....
A roaring success during Oktoberfest 2020 this beer was made to be swigged in steins in vast quantities. Schnell, schnell!
