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 color 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; the only thing we can't do currently is wheat beers like hefeweizens.
The brewing process
- Choose your beer recipe from the menu selection.
- We will brew the wort for you.
- Let it ferment - ales take about 2 weeks, lagers take about a month depending on the yeast you choose.
- We will cold filter and store in keg until bottling.
- 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.
Your freshly-brewed batch of beer can be bottled in all sorts of ways: plastic, glass and aluminium cans. We have a variety of bottling options available for sale:
