  • “Multigrain Fruit Juice” Pale Ale
    Contributing editor for Craft Beer and Brewing Magazine, Dave Carpenter’s homebrew recipe is inspired by weekend brunch. What began as an experimental oat-based pale ale evolved into the perfect ingredient in a brunchtime beermosa.

    If you like Nelson Sauvin, you’ll love this beer.

  • Simcoe Plus New England Hazy
    With Mosaic and Citra in short supply late in the season we went hunting for a new Hazy recipe that wasn't using these hops. We found a great recipe out of Chicago in the USA and we tweeked this to fit available malts here in NZ.

  • Simcoe Saison
    Not your traditional saison, but the blend of tropical fruit from the hops and spice from the yeast works really well. This beer is awesome!

  • Juice Box Hazy IPA
    This recipe has been adapted from an American Magazine and was originally provided from the Brewer at an award winning USA Brewery. We had to tweak the recipe a little to match some of the malts and hops and we scaled it to 23L. Buts it’s still a great Hazy and Juicy IPA full of orange citrus and tropical fruit.

  • Lemondrop Blonde Ale
    We wanted a nice Sessionable beer to test the new Lemondrop Hops and this one came out stunning. You can pick up the lemon citrus but not sickly like some Radler or Shandy. This hop is similar to US Cascade and Centennial but with more lemon notes. Simply an awesome sessionable summer beer. Enjoy 3-4 after mowing the lawns.

    There's nothing more spooky than a beer that messes with your senses. At first glance this looks like a heavy stout but its actually a tropical and citrussy IPA. This is a stunning IPA full of new world hop flavours. The perfect beer for Friday 13th.
