Beer Recipes

  • Moonless Night
    For something a little different try our Schwarzbier recipe. Moonless Night is our Dark Lager and as far as dark beers go it is far lighter bodied than a stout or porter and less hoppy than a black IPA. This easy drinking session beer will have you wanting more.

  • Wedding IPA - Winning extract recipe
    I had 3 weeks to make a beer for a family wedding and it was a big hit.

    Due to the limited time (and warning) I made up my favourite extract kits with a little extra citra hops. Brewed, kegged and served in 3 weeks!

  • Extract Black IPA
    Mess with your mind and have the flavour of an IPA in a beer that looks like a porter! Is it a hoppy porter or a Black IPA? You decide!

  • German Pilsner (the NZ way)
    With the heat of summer its nice to have a lower strength quaffing beer. Our NZ take on a traditional German Pilsner is a great summer drink and it works out at approx 80c per 500ml glass! Now that's cost effective!

  • Mint and Cucumber Sour 19L
    Cucumber adds a bright cucumber/green melon flavour to this Berliner Weisse. And the addition of mint adds a freshness that works so well.
    This beer works amazingly when paired with a roast lamb dish. The mint and cucumber sour reminds me of fresh home made mint sauce. And a sour beer always works to cut through the fat of roast meat. It’s a winner.

  • Black Doris Creme Sour - 19L
    This recipe was provided by Chris Nelson and has been made in several versions with different fruit in each - and all have turned out great.
    Using Philly Sour yeast removes the need to kettle sour and there is no need to add Lacto post ferment. Enjoy!

  • Grandads Tractor Old Ale
    Old Ales and stronger Aged Ales are aged Ales that have a unique character blending malt dried fruit and alcohol. The aroma is malty, sweet with hints of fruity esters. Dried caramel, nut, toffee, blend with the warmth of the alcohol.

    One of my favourite dark beers for the winter months. Coffee, Chocolate and Coconut...all flavours that work well together.
