We offer inspired takes on iconic beer styles by sticking to the first principles of brewing – craft, graft and the kind of finesse that can’t be faked. The result is beer that’s farm-fresh, market-brewed with no rough edges – as well-suited to a session as it is to appreciation.
Based on our performance at the International Brewing Awards 2019, we are regarded by many of our peers as the best lager brewery in the world, and the youngest in the awards 150 year history to win a gold medal.

Lager 4.2% ABV
Silver medal winner at the Oscars of global beer, the International Brewing Awards 2019. Pouring a pale straw colour, Frisby is a bright lager with a dense white foam. A blend of German and English malts provides a delicate sweetness with biscuit & honied malt character. Very cold fermentation and extended maturation provide a clean base to build upon with English Fuggles hops which lend a light herbal and spicy aroma and definite yet soft bitterness.
Colour: 9 EBC
Bitterness: 24 IBU
Golden Ale 4.6% ABV
Sublime fruity esters jostle with floral and fruity hop aromas. English Goldings and New Zealand Motueka hops are matched to provide delicious hot-side hopping without over-powering our house ale yeast’s character. Explore further and you may find aromas of frangipani, mandarins and wine gums leading to a sweet malt and soft bitter finish.
Colour: 14 EBC
Bitterness: 18 IBU
Pale Ale 4.4% ABV
A sumptuous orange hue provided by a base of the finest English barley malts builds a level of sweet malt complexity that is well balanced with English, New Zealand and US hops. Juicy hop aromas of oranges, tropical fruit and citrus orchards lead to a very pleasing bitterness and cleansing finish.
Colour: 22 EBC
Bitterness: 34 IBU
Black Lager 4.8% ABV
Gold medal winner at the Oscars of global beer, the International Brewing Awards 2019. For us, its simply the World's best lager. But, you decide. A beautiful looking beer – dark brown in colour with deep garnet highlights and a crema-like foam. Gunmetal is clean and crisp from a long and slow ferment at 9°C with our house lager yeast. Aromas of herbal & earthy Noble hops jostle for position with the delicate aromas of lightly roasty, toasty and smooth biscuit malt. Deliciously on the palate – there is none of the burnt malt astringency normally associated with beers of this colour.

Bitterness: 34 IBU
West Coast IPA
Deep golden marmalade in colour and pouring bright, hop-lead aromas of stonefruit, citrus, pine and tropical dominate. Hopping Spree is well built, with multiple hot-side hop additions adding complexity and drinkability and our dry hopping regime rounding the whole beer out. The malt takes a back seat in this beer, it’s pleasant and nuanced against the hopping, but the massive 6.6% ABV deliver the sweetness needed for a beer of this hop content.
SEASONAL BEERS & SINGLE BATCHES
We brew limited edition beers inspired by seasonal ingredients, flavours and food pairings – both on our own and in collaboration.
