Hawkers Pale Ale


5.2% Pale Ale - A quintessential American style Pale Ale, hop forward and yet somehow very balanced. This beer is a real thirst quencher. The lively citrus fruit and piney aromatics fly at you out of the glass, with the trio of US hops plundered for all the juiciness they have. Bottled in early December, this beer goes great with spicy red curry with chicken or a nice blue cheese on dark rye bread.

Barrow Boys Stormy Lager


4.7% Vienna style darker lager. The colour is ruby or chestnut red. The aroma is slightly sweet with a hint of toffee and floral hoppy notes. First up on the palate there is biscuity malt flavour which turns into a quenching bitterness. It leaves behind a malty, subtle caramel sweetness. Bottled in mid November, this beer pairs well with BBQ, burgers and spicy food but lately I've been enjoying it wiht 'Mountain Man' washed rind cheese from L'Artisan.

Dainton Insane Uncle IPA


Insance Uncle is a 6% West coast inspired IPA. Crisp and light malt body jammed with a bunch of juicy, piney, resinously delicious American Hops inside to give classic west coast IPA flavours. It's rounded out with a touch of Galaxy to add a slight tropical note giving it super sessionability. Bottled in late November, this beer is fantastic with a harissa rubbed lamb rack out of the oven or grill.

Venom Golden Ale


Golden Ale is a crisp and easy drinking 4.8 percent ABV beer. It pours a vibrant golden colour. Using a blend of wheat and ale malts, and Motueka and Nelson Sauvin hops provides a good bitterness and passionfruit and mango hit, with a super clean and smooth finish. It's Deadly Good! Bottled in early Oct. This beer goes down smashingly well before dineer with a plate of cut cured meats.
