Mastering Fermentation: At the heart of the brewing process is fermentation. When the perfect combination of yeast, malt, hops, temperature and time is mastered, a drinkable miracle happens. And it’s right inside this bottle. Our take on a dortmund style lager, subtle fruity notes and crisp mouth-feel make a super refreshing stand out beer. MALT Pilsener, Cara-Pils HOPS Hallertau, Ella ABV 4.2% IBU 22 EBC 5.5
Mastering Hops: With precise timing, carefully selected hops are added at different stages during the brewing process. This results in a distinct bright, citrusy and floral hop character, and adds a thirst quenching bitterness. HOPS Ella, Simcoe MALT Ale Malt, Crystal Malt ABV 4.9% IBU 30 EBC 14
Mastering Light: Malt selection, mash temperature and a fruity hop selection provides opportunity to brew a light beer with no compromise in flavour. Big in personality, small in alcohol, junior is perfect any time of day or night. MALT Ale, Vienna, wheat HOPS Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra, Chinook ABV 3.5% IBU 25 EBC 10
Mastering The Dark Art: The Maillard reaction causes the darkening of grains as they are exposed to heat, and gives the intense roasted malt flavours in this stout. Combined with pronounced hop bitterness, the deep and complex palate has hints of espresso and cigar box, and is not to be taken lightly. HOPS Warrior MALT Roasted Barley, Chocolate Malt ABV 6.2% IBU 35 EBC 85
Mastering Balance: Using new world hops juxtaposed with sweet malt character, this ESB is a classic example of the delicate balance between flavour, aroma and bitterness. HOPS Galaxy, Mosaic MALT Ale, Crystal, Chocolate ABV 5.2% IBU 20 EBC 35
Mastering Flavour: A deep understanding of the relationship between the acids and oils in hops, and sweetness in malt is imperative to achieving the blissful harmony of flavour within this bottle. HOPS Simcoe, Chinook, Galaxy MALT Ale, Vienna, Crystal ABV 6.2% IBU 56 EBC 15
