Czech Pilsner

Bitterness
Sweetness
Colour
Style
Our spin on a classic pilsner showcases all the great things about this kind of lager. In other words, it’s crisp, dry, slightly bitter, full of flavour and incredibly easy to drink.
ABV
4.8%
Aroma Notes
Key Notes: Light - Crisp - HoppyImagine the taste of a perfect lager and you’re pretty much on the money. We’re talking clean and refreshing, with loads of hops thrown in. It’s matured long and slow, so it has this great depth of flavour and slight flowery and herby notes too.
Food Pairing
Fresh, simple flavours work with a Pilsner. Think chicken dishes, light spice, Cajun flavours and BBQ food.

American Pale

Bitterness
Sweetness
Colour
Style
Our take on making a great American Pale Ale. British & German malts meet sexy American hops. Result: love at first taste. This is why we started our craft brewery idea back in 1999 and we are so glad we did. This was our first brew!
ABV
4.6%
Aroma
Key Notes: Balanced - Hoppy - FruityFruity is the first word that comes to mind - mainly tangerine, grapefruit and melon. Then you notice the pleasant, the full bodiness of it and how easy it is to drink. Finally, you can congratulate yourself on a great choice.
Food Pairing
This big bold beer deserves big, bold flavours. Try it with red meat or spicy foods. Yummy!

Hazy Days – Wit Bier

Hazy Days – Wit Bier

Belgian Witbier

Bitterness
Sweetness
Colour
Style
An easy drinking Belgian Style Beer using orange peel and fresh-ground coriander seeds. We tweaked the recipe by dropping the ABV to a more sessionable level – 4.2% - allowing you to comfortably have more than one pint.
ABV
4.2%
Aroma
Key Notes: Citrus Clove RefreshingNo prizes for guessing that this one’s going to be orangey, citrusy and a bit spicy (think cloves). The wheat malt and wheat beer yeast provide a good majority of the natural haze. The Oats bring a silky body and also contribute to the natural haze as well.
Food Pairing
Oily foods like fish, seafood pastas and creamy dishes pair well as the fresh and fruity beer cuts through, cleansing the palate.

The Beast – Black Lager

The Beast – Black Lager

Black Lager

Bitterness
Sweetness
Colour
Style
The inspiration is German Schwarzbier. It’s hard to believe this dark, full-bodied, roasty-toasty beast is a lager. But it really is! This beer is incredibly easy to drink.
ABV
4.6%
Aroma
Key Notes: Full-Bodied - Roasty - CoffeeMalt, dark chocolate, coffee. Hold to the light and notice, like the best schwarzbiers, that it’s actually dark brown, not black. And don’t think its richness means it’s hard to have a second.
Food Pairing
The Beast needs a strong flavour to work with - try anything with gravy or, if you’re feeling adventurous, why not try it with a dessert? It’s works surprisingly well with coffee and chocolate flavours. We all love it!

Our Mango Beer

Our Mango Beer

Fruit Beer

Bitterness
Sweetness
Colour
Style
How to make a clean, golden ale sing even sweeter? Add mango! The sweet mango pulp results in a naturally hazy easy-drinker that bursts with a taste that’s totally tropical. One of our biggest sellers! It started off as a Speciality beer on tap for a limited time, but it was asked for so many times it became a permanent core beer since 2004.
ABV
4.1%
Aroma
Key Notes: Light - Sweet – FruityHmm, beer made with mango, what could it possibly taste like? Here’s a thing though – the fruitiness makes this one go down very well with cider fans. Yet it isn’t too sweet that you couldn’t drink more than one.
Food Pairing
Try something spicy with this beer - it helps balance spice, complementing chili dishes.

Beer Philosophy

It’s just this simple – By not filtering, pasteurising or using additives, Zerodegrees beer stays healthy and nutritious...and this is exactly what we have done from the beginning.

We started brewing fresh craft beer in 2000 with a small team of brewers who we're dead set on delivering fresh beer to the growing nation of beer lovers! We designed each brewery so that we could brew on site and in sight - from tank to mouth.

All of the beer served at Zerodegrees go straight from maturation tank to the tap, meaning there no need to keg. It's tank fresh beer, without the transportation - it really doesn't get any fresher than that.

Mini

Zero Degrees Mini Keg

Kegs

Zerodegrees' 5 litre mini-kegs are perfect for any occasion or even if you don't have one. Take one with you and enjoy the Zerodegrees experience whenever you want.

Venting the keg

Carefully vent the barrel by opening the value on the top of the keg. First, lift the red tab handle on top and turn it anti-clockwise, giving it a quarter of a turn

Preparing to Dispense

Place the barrel at the edge of the table. Bend the red tab on the front of the barrel towards you and pull out the tap. The stem will ease straight out of the keg

Pouring the beer

Hold a tilted glass under the stem end. Turn the tap anti-clockwise until the beer comes out. Pour the beer down the side of the glass.

Closing the Tap

Close the tap by turning clock-wise holding a glass underneath to catch any drips. It is not necessary to push the tap in after every drink

Keg FAQS

KEG FAQS

How long will a 5L keg stay fresh for?

Once opened and as long as you can keep it in the fridge as much as possible we can last around 3 days.

How many glasses of beer can I enjoy from a Mini-Keg?

There are just under 9 pints.

Is it an environmentally friendly product?

Yes, the packaging is 100% recyclable. It is also extremely efficient considering that one single keg holds five litres of beer. For easy disposal, the empty packaging with the tap pipe can also be thrown out with the household bin.

When I try to draw beer, all I get is foam, why?

This is usually because your Mini-Keg is not cold enough. It must be placed in the refrigerator for at least 10 hours to ensure the temperature of the beer in the keg is around 5°C. Even though the keg usually feels cold to the touch when it’s refrigerated, this is because the metal exterior becomes cold much more quickly – it doesn't always mean that the beer is actually cold enough. For the perfect pour, make sure you open the tap pipe quickly and completely when drawing beer.
