1840 Lager

Ah the lager – a somewhat forgotten style in the craft beer scene, but not for us! We wanted our lager to shine and have people go “wow, now that’s a bloody good beer”!

Crisp, malt body brewed with hops from Australia and Europe creating a balance of familiarity and imagination. An aroma of floral and spice, clean with soft bitterness on the palate providing undeniable drinkability.

Refreshing and light, an absolute must have during summer. Delicious Adelaide Hills craft beer.

XPA = extra pale ale. Where does the ‘extra’ come from you may ask, it is all in the hops. Hops are added throughout the process and double dry hopped. The malt barley is brewed dry and crisp, so the hops can really take the stage.

The XPA has a little more alcohol compared to our pale ale but is still an approachable Adelaide Hills craft beer. Dominant fruity aroma with a hint of citrus and pine, will get the mouth salivating. Firm bitterness at the end of each sip, delicious!

session ale

Craving the taste of a cold, refreshing beer, but without the high alcohol content that comes with it? Then our session ale is going to become your go-to.

The process of dry hopping, provides seductive tropical aromas – fruit soft drink anyone? The balance of bitter and sweet provides an easy drinking experience. An addition of wheat and oats rounds out the mouth feel, this is super sessionable – hence the name.

We love this being part of our Adelaide Hills craft beer!

We use freshly crushed Adelaide Hill apples in our cider, in particular pink ladies, and freshly squeezed Ashton Valley apple juice, which delivers an explosion of crisp apple.

welsh ale

After a couple of years in the promised land our resident Welshmen Rob was longing for a “chopsy” Welsh Ale. It would have been “Twp” to have him deported, instead we gave him the run of the brewery for the day. What resulted is a “Crackin” Welsh Ale akin to a good Welsh “Cwtch”. Its “Da iawn” so get your “Daps” on before Rob drinks it all.

It’s a malty creamy brew with notes of toffee, caramel, banana and spice. Very sessionable at 4.2% the perfect spring tipple on nitro.
