It all started with Pale Ale

The beer that inspired this crazy journey, ours is a hop driven Pale Ale bursting with flavour and aroma. Full-bodied yet refreshing, the bitter finish will leave your tastebuds craving more.

We were born to make Pale Ale, a style that was little known in Australia when we started, but is now much loved. Back in the day there were two hop varieties coming out of the North West of the US that really took our fancy; Cascade and Chinook hops. These hops packed an addictive punch and gave rise to the super hoppy American Pale Ale, a style that inspired us back then and still inspires us today.

Made with australian & us hops

Since day one, we have brewed our Pale using whole hop cones, sourced straight from both Australia and the US directly to our breweries (something pretty unique) and use our hop back to extract those beautiful, hoppy aromas and delicate bitterness. Preservative and additive free, our Pale Ale is live yeast conditioned, in the bottle (after filling) for unmatched freshness and character and takes about six weeks from brewing to be released.

An iconic, epiphany beer for many Australians, our Pale Ale inspired the craft beer movement in Australia, and has consistently been voted by consumers as one of Australia's best beers, every year, since it's creation in 2001.
