Smashed Clogs, a dipa we smashed out with Jopen Bier… Nu Breekt Mijn Klomp!

Featuring YCH303 trial: Cryo Hops x Phantasm and the NZ hop on the scene, superdelic. Crack, Smash and Enjoy!


We are a wee bit excited to introduce our latest seasonal: An Irish beer of Scottish descent! Here is our Barrel Aged nod to the Wee Heavy.

This brew is packed full of malt depth, warming alcohol and barrel aged goodness! Shortbread undertones topped with Marzipan and cherry overtones jump out of the glass, all carried on the warming alcohol and full mouth feel of this decadent scotch ale. Ex-cherry bitters and rye whiskey barrels have really worked a number on this beer.


Summer is here and we’re stoked to be brewing with heaps of New Zealand hops. Nelson Sauvin and Motueka have this NZ IPA BURSTING with tropical, citrus and white wine notes. Slap on some sun cream, slip on the old jandals and crack open this JOOSEY SUP!

Introducing our latest seasonal, A-TIPA-CAL. This isn’t your typical Triple IPA. Experimenting with our friends at Yakima Chief Hops we have ladened this TIPA with their YCH 301 Trial – flash frozen wet hops pelletized through their Cryo Hops® process! YCH 301 Simcoe® and Citra® with a dash of Cryo Pop® Original Blend make this one atypical IPA!   

Story be told we have discussed brewing this beer for some time and once we stumbled upon the right Rye Whiskey barrels the time was nigh. Brewed in February and fermented in steel, this Rye Doppelbock was further matured and lagered in select Rye Whiskey barrels for 6 months. This double lager tells the tale of all its parts. The malty sweetness and bready toast of German Munich, Vienna and Rye Malt shine alongside the warming alcohol depths of the beer and its barrels bringing the character of cedar, apple, spice and tobacco. Enjoy with friends and let your story be told!

This one is for the Dog Days of Summer! We brewed what we love: Kölsch and Hops. Grab some cans, find some sun and crush a few cold ones. This mutt of a Kölsch Style is crisp and clean with a Tango and Callista Dry Hops bringing forward a spritz of citrus and sweet fruit. Prost!

Retro IPA is a 5.6% ABV malt-forward traditional style IPA. It’s a well-balanced IPA with a caramelised malt, floral hop character and rounded mouthfeel. Cascade and Columbus hops shine through the malty aromatics of this throwback IPA. 

This is one big beer not to be taken lightly! Bursting with an aromatic medley of pine and grapefruit, this beer is exquisitely balanced between pine bitterness and biscuity malt. Packed with Cascade, Columbus, Chinook, Centennial and Mosaic. This beer delivers a dam-busting hoppy hit!

Our Backstrand American Pale Ale is the perfect canvas for Strata and Cascade hops to boast bright fresh fruit and dank aromas atop a crisp and clean easy sipper.
