BEER

Our beers are all made from scratch – no syrups or extracts, just fresh malted barley milled here right before we mash. We have a wide variety of beer styles available from the lightest lagers to the darkest stouts or the hoppiest IPAs.

Each batch produces approximately 48L. Ales are ready in 2-3 weeks while Lagers and Pilsners take 4-5 weeks. Once fermentation is complete, you’ll bottle it up yourself using our bottling equipment and your choice of bottles or cans – we carry a variety of different bottle options to best fit your lifestyle and personal aesthetic.

Prices shown below include all fees and taxes but do not include the cost of bottles or cans – you can provide your own, or you can see our selection of available bottles and cans here.

CHOOSING YOUR BEER

Choosing the right beer is simple – come in for a chat and tell us what you like. We can adjust our recipes to your taste – enjoy a particular type of hop? We can do that. Want something that’s just simple and easy drinking? No problem. From the lightest lager to the most bitter IPA, we have you covered.

TYPES OF BEER

We offer a variety of beer recipes from lagers to dark ales. While lagers tend to be lighter in colour the range of bitterness could be from near water (think mass market beers) to heavily hopped pilsners. Ales generally are maltier and mild in hop flavour. Some specialty beers are full of hops like ESB’s and IPA’s. We can make just about anything EXCEPT sours and saisons.

THE BREWING PROCESS

  1. Choose your beer recipe from the menu selection.
  2. We will brew the wort for you.
  3. Let it ferment – ales take about 2 weeks, lagers take about a month depending on the yeast you choose.
  4. We will cold filter and store in keg until bottling.
  5. Come in and bottle/can your beer and away you go.

CARING FOR YOUR BEER

Always store your beer in a cool, dark place. A fridge is ideal. There are NO preservatives in our beers; shelf life is reduced if you store in a warm place. Shelf life will vary depending on storage and containers, but beer stored in a fridge in clean glass bottles will happily last 3+ months. Some styles (IPAs, stouts, etc) will last quite a while longer. We can only guarantee our beer when bottled in new bottles or cans, but we’re happy to teach you how to care for your bottles so they can be reused.
