Golden Ale style that has a beaut balance of Ale and Crystal malts and is hopped using Goldings for a bit of nostalgic bitterness but also Galaxy and Cascade for a more modern aroma driven style. Gold is crisp and fresh with earthy malt flavours, a soft mouth feel and a satisfying fruity finish as dry as summer is long.
ABV 4.8% IBU 18
A traditionally brewed old world beer with a modern twist. Combining the toasty toffee and caramel flavours of an Irish Red with the bright fruity and herbal notes of new world Jarrylo hops and complemented by the piney, citrus flavour and aroma of Mosaic and Chinook hops.

A great Lager is all about time and our Pilsner style spends six weeks in tank to create a clean, smooth and refreshing finish with a hint of citrus and tropical fruit. With the light touch of Saaz cultivar hops this is a classic Pilsner style with a herbal nose and light straw coloured body.

With a big hit of Aussie and US hops, spicy rye, hints of blood orange, black pepper, pine and tropical fruit, there’s a lot going on in this IPA. Great mouthfeel with balanced bitterness and a lingering malty backbone. The Three Stooges would be proud.

We’ve taken the planet’s two favourite drinks and put them together in a union of organic, ethically sourced Tiger Mountain Arabica coffee from our friends at Coffee Basics, and dark malted barleys with the spicy hit of American hops. Surprisingly light, full flavoured and refreshing, this schwarzbier style lager is chocolaty, rich and dark. Available in bottles March-Sept.

In 2015, we celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the release of Doug’s band Hunters & Collectors’ classic album Human Frailty. With a golden hue from the light touch of biscuity American malts and the tingling citrus aroma of Chinook, Cascade and Centennial and dry hopping using (what else) Falconer’s Flight – a blend of Citra, Simcoe and Sorachi Ace hops. Now also available in 330ml bottles.

A party in a glass. We wanted to make a classic Aussie all rounder – very sessionable and a fantastic beer with food. The Grail is all about big fruity hops with a clean refreshing finish. Brewed in Castlemaine using all Australian Galaxy hops and Triticale – a wheat and rye cross – which gives the Grail its distinctive haze.

Just like a chocolate milkshake, only better! We’ve ramped up our usual brown porter with a bigger malt base and freshly roasted cacao nibs from our neighbours at Cabosse & Feve Chocolates to make this complex winter warmer. The usual chocolate malt notes are accentuated by the bittersweet cacao nibs to give hints of leather and tobacco with some sweet caramel notes and a touch of woody spice to really round out the experience. Drink slowly from a wide-mouthed glass to allow the viscous brown liquid to warm gradually (so that each sip tastes slightly different) and savour the journey, all without leaving your fireside. You can’t go anywhere, so you might as well enjoy a couple of these.

Commissioned by the CSIRO for the inaugural Australian Hemp Conference. We enlisted the help of Bunjil Farm in nearby Kyneton to provide the hemp seed meal that makes up ten percent of the beer, which is otherwise a traditional pale ale brewed with rye. Saaz and Goldings hops were chosen to support to the hemp’s spicy and earthy notes – the dominant flavours of the beer. Now also available in 330ml bottles.

Shedshaker has joined the haze craze! This sessionable ale is loaded with both rolled and malted oats to provide a juicy haze that not just looks good, but sits on the pallet.
