Beer.

Our journey is an exploration of flavours, crafted together to fuel the senses; harnessed from the finest grain; extracted from aromatic hops; melded by pure New Zealand waters; hewn by a culture of dynamic yeast. Our team cut a path to modernise age-old techniques in the pursuit of flavour fuelled creations.

Our beer projects are our way of exploring fuller flavours and consistently bringing new and interesting brews to our customers throughout the year. Our flavour fuelled range ensures delicious craft beer can make its way to your taste buds all year round.

STEAM FUNK PROJECT.

Steam Funk is our seasonal funk style beer project. Old world style beers for the modern era. We are constantly bringing out new exciting flavour fuelled brews in this range to challenge your taste buds! Saisons, Farmhouse ales, and Kettle sours such as Goses & Berliner Weiss. Please check our Instagram and Facebook pages to see what styles we currently have available.

LUPULIN EFFECT PROJECT.

The beers we brew under our Lupulin Effect project are focussed on fuller flavour India Pale Ale style brews. This project allows our brewers to continuously develop new and innovative brews including: the annual seasonal brews using fresh New Zealand native Cascade and Nelson Sauvin hops; the innovative and infamous extra hoppy IPA using fresh hop steam-distilled oil; German hopped beer; Red IPA, Double IPA; and most recently a Gin Lime double IPA (using handcrafted NZ gin and NZ limes) and a white IPA. Please check our Instagram and Facebook pages for the latest IPA styles available.

NERO PROJECT.

The Nero series are our seasonal darker styled beers.  With a procession of flavour fuelled porters and stouts, the Nero series are hearty beers which are brewed with a complex richer flavour in mind; malt characters with coffee, chocolate and vanilla in aroma and taste.
