Beer

Core Range

  • Pale : Australian Pale Ale
    In the Great Aussie Tradition, this Australian Pale Ale is easy drinking with a hint of bittering hops and a mild malt profile. This makes it perfect for enjoying on warm summer days as well as by the fire on cool winter evenings. A great session ale. 5.0%ABV
  • Weizen: Bavarian Wheat Beer
    This Hefeweizen is made using a traditional double decoction method to produce a characteristic sweet wort, which when combined with German noble hops and Bavarian yeast produces an exceptional Bavarian white beer brimming with pleasant spice and fruit notes. Enjoy it unfiltered and traditionally cloudy. 4.5%ABV
  • ESB: Extra Special Bitter
    Based on the local fare of Gloucestershire UK, this ESB is well balanced with bitterness slightly dominating over an earthy hop presence.
    A creamy and soft caramel sweetness finishes with mineral dry notes. 4.5%ABV
  • Stout: Classic Oatmeal Stout
    Our stout is made in the classic English style with rolled oats. A prolonged mash and easy boil brings out the character of the roasted barley and black malt with a hint of coffee liqueur.
    A lighter style stout with a full and silky mouth feel delivers a satisfying and perplexing ale. 5.0%ABV
  • Brown : American Brown Ale
    The roots of this style lie with American home brewers who brew it with a big malt presence.
    This American Brown Ale has a malt chocolate punch with a hint of coffee. The lightly hopped fruity character allows the malt to stand out.
    The full bodied warming feel of this brown ale is reflected in its ruby tinged darkness. Unfiltered of course. 5.5%ABV
  • Rye Blonde
    This malt driven American Pale has been given a fresh twist with the addition of Southern Hemisphere hops. The rye malt adds a tart and creamy finish, which combined with the citrus and passionfruit character of the hops delivers a clean and balanced summer ale. Now available all year round. 5.5%ABV

Seasonals

Autumn 2017

English Pale Ale

This English Pale Ale, with the addition of Pacifica hops adds a hint of spice and orange to the traditional fruit spice notes of the style, producing a crisp and clean bitterness. The beer is rounded off with a hint of bread malt. 5.8%ABV

Brewer’s Note: This was meant to be an English IPA but the extra-hoppiness simply wasn’t present. Instead we have a hoppy English Pale Ale. Happiness.

Stubbies all gone and we’re on our last keg. Autumn is almost over.

Winter 2017

Scottish Light 60/-

Produced from the same mash as our GABS festival beer, a Scottish Export 80 Shilling, this Scottish Light 60 Shilling is full of malt with mellow caramel and light bread notes. A hint of orange-citrus adds complexity to the familiar earth and spice of English noble hops. A slight hop adjustment keeps the beer balanced producing a smooth clean malty bitterness. 4.1%ABV

Also available in stubby.

GABS Beer: The “A9 to Thurso” Scottish Ale 80/-

The A9 was produced from first runnings (parti-gyle) with our Scottish Light. It is quietly conditioning, awaiting its debut at this years GABS Beer Spectapular in Melbourne on 19 – 21 May 2017. It will then be available at Cubby Haus Brewing the following week.

A pint of this fine ale will take you back to the Scottish North where kilts are worn for comfort and warmth. The “A9 to Thurso” is full of malt with mellow caramel and light bread notes. A hint of orange-citrus adds complexity to the familiar earth and spice of English noble hops. A low carbonated, malt focused beer provides a smooth clean bitterness which delivers a well balanced malt driven Scottish Ale. 6.1%ABV

Also available in growler.

New Beers in Production

Bohemian Pilsner

Our Spring beer is a light and malty Bohemian Pilsner. Our first ever lager! This will not be your standard light and bland lager, but a rich, malty and aromatic beer. The way lager was meant to be. 5.0%ABV

English IPA

Our very successful English Pale Ale will morph into an English India Pale Ale in time for Autumn (or earlier if I can manage it).  Lessons learnt, this ale will be packed full of spicy and earthy English noble hops. Definitely not a fruit drink.
