Our seasonal beers

Rakau IPA

Our entry in Nelson’s Marchfest 2014, this varietal IPA features a relatively new local hop, Rakau. Its delicate nose and tropical-fruit flavours combine elegantly with Gladfield malts from Canterbury in a refreshing, apricot-coloured beer with a rounded, bittersweet finish.

Double IPA

This is for those hop heads who love a hop forward IPA. A sumptuous Double IPA that’s delightfully aromatic and fruity up-front. Blackcurrant, pine and citrus on the nose gives way to a resinous, grapefruit-tart body with a lingering bitterness. Heavy on the hops, and at 8.5% it packs a punch and delivers on its promise of double deliciousness.

Barrel Aged Stout

Seasonal A deep dark black colour with a coffee like head. The nose is fill of chocolate mousse and Tiramisu. On the palette are rich dark chocolate, roasted coffee notes with a tart Pinot Oak finish. At 7% this is a beer to sit back relax and enjoy.

West Coast IPA

Seasonal An all American Hopped West Coast IPA. A marmalade nose, with a big tart grapefruit palette that sticks around until the very last mouthful. Clean dry finish.

Session IPA

Light toasty malts, with a bronze hue, a good bitterness and floral earthy hop characters on the palette, topped of with a perfumed nose.

WeeWaka IPA

Our entry in Nelson’s Marchfest 2015. Pouring a pale gold, this IPA has aromas of Grapefruit and Rockmelon, with a light bitter citrus finish.
