point
Process 1

Malt Sacks

The brewing process starts with malt barley stored in stacks.

point
Process 2

Roller Mill

The blend of malts required for a particular recipe is cracked in a roller mill

point
Process 3

Grist Hopper

The milled malt or 'grist' is transported to the grist hopper above the brew house.

point
Process 4

Mash Tun

Next is the 'mashing', where the grist is mixed with hot water in the mash tun. Over the course of a few hours, mashing converts the starches in the malts into sugar

point
Process 5

Brew Kettle

This is followed by 'lautering in which the sweet liquid called 'wort' is drawn off the bottom and pumped into the brew kettle.

Once the brew kettle is full, the wort is brought to the boil. Bittering hops are added at the beginning of the boil, while hops used for aroma are added towards the end.

The boil usually lasts one hour

point
Process 6

Heat Exchanger

After the boil and a brief settling period, the wort is cooled by pumping it througfh a heat exchanger

point
Process 7

Fermentation Tank

The cold wort is then transferred through hoses to tempreture controlled fermentation tanks. Yeast is then immediately injected into the tank to initiate fermentation during which yeast cells ingest sugars in the wort to produce alcohol and carbon dioxide.

For largers e.g Pilsner of Black Larger, fermentation is colder and slower, lasting two to three weels. Cold conditioning of largering of the beers takes place in the same tank or special lagering tanks. The tempreture is held near freezing for anywhere from two weeks to two months, depending on the beer style.

Process 8

Serving Tank

The finsihed beer is stored in serving tanks. From here the beer flows directly to the bar or is kegged to take away.

Pale Ale 4.6%

Copper coloured ale, similar to an English bitter, but in the style adapted by the craft-brewers of the U.S. west coast. Rich malt flavours combine with distinctive floral and fruity flavours (peach and grapefruit) from American cascade and centennial hops.

Tasting Notes:
Deep colour with floral aromas that are quite pronounced. These become toffee-like as the ale develops in the glass. In the mouth the hoppy notes are quite sweet and carries a decent mineral backbone. The grapefruit bitter notes come through after the mid palate and the finish is bone-dry.

Drink With
Spicy dishes, such as Gamberi piccante, Creole Mussels, and Sweet and Spicy Italian sausage pizza.

Serving Temperature: 5-6°

Pilsner 4.8%

Continental style golden lager, unfiltered to retain freshness. The pleasing malt character is balanced by 100% czech Saaz - highly prized for their delicate bitterness and fresh lime-fruit flavour.

Tasting Notes:
Top notes are light and malty, refreshing and clean. The mid palate carries the full toasty character and the finish has a bright citrus conclusion.

Drink With
Oriental infused cuisine, such as Thai green curry mussels, Teriyaki chicken stir-fry, and Peking Duck Pizza.

Serving Temperature: 4-5°

Cider 4.5%

We use the best apples that the southwest can offer around 10 varieties of apples to give you the perfect finish.

Tasting Notes:
This is a lightly sparkling and wonderfully refreshing cider. It has a medium dry, fruity, clean depth of flavour with a lingering apple finish.

Drink With
Barbecue chicken pizza, beer battered Cajun prawns, and Smoky Mexican pizza

Serving Temperature: 4-5°

Wheat Ale 4.2%

Often pale, traditionally cloudy, always refreshing and easy-drinking. Brewed in various styles - including the quenching American wheat ale, the vanilla and banana flavoured German hefe-weizen, or the orange and spicy Belgian witbier.

Tasting Notes:
A hefe-weizen with exotic top notes to the aromas. Predominantly banana with floral edges. On the palate the fruit notes continue with some caramel coming through on the rich elegant finish. Retains a good mousse throughout.

Drink With
Rich and creamy food, such as gorgonzola and mushroom gnocchi, mushroom and talleggio risotto, and basilica mussels

Serving Temperature: 5-6°

Black Lager 4.6%

A deep dark Czech style lager, roasted and caramelised malts give chocolate and coffee flavours & a lasting cappuccino-style collar of foam.

Tasting Notes:
Sweet, porter-like aromas, quite deep and chocolatey. On the mid palate the mocha notes come through but are never cloying due to the lightness of the mousse. The finish is sweet and refreshing.

Drink With
Red meat, such as Carne Asada pizza, gourmet sausages, and antipasto.

Serving Temperature: 5-6°

Speciality 4.8%

Continental style golden lager, unfiltered to retain freshness. The pleasing malt character is balanced by 100% czech Saaz - highly prized for their delicate bitterness and fresh lime-fruit flavour.
