What's on tap

  Region Alc % $Pot Pint Jug
Wayward Brewing Co. ‘Hazy Mid’ Juicy Mid-Strength Hazy Pale Ale Camperdown, N.S.W. 3.5% $6.5 $13 $24
From the brewer – “We brewed this easy drinking hazy pale ale for those looking for a sessionable mid-strength ABV beer with a seriously juicy hop punch. The perfect balance of a light malt backbone with just a hint of oats backed by the tropical hop flavours and aromas of Citra, Simcoe and Chinook hops. The perfect backyard beer? Just maybe!”
3 Ravens ‘Black’ Oatmeal Stout Thornbury, VIC 4.5% $7 $14 $26
A staple of 3 Ravens range since 2003, ‘Black’ is a smooth and silky stout with mild roast character & a creamy texture derived from oats. Now seasonally brewed to coincide with early winter, ‘Black’ was given a facelift in line with the breweries focus on fresh local malt and hops to enhance drinkability. Black, back in 2021.
Carlton Draught Abbotsford, VIC 4.6% $7 $14 $26
The Aussie classic. Carlton Draught is a traditional, full-strength lager that is crisp on the mid-palate with a good malt character and smooth full-bodied flavour. Clean hop bitterness gives the brew a slightly dry finish.
Deeds Brewing ‘Juice Train’ New England Hazy IPA Glen Iris, VIC 12.7% $8 $16 $29
Packed full of hops from start to finish. This super Juicy IPA is hazy in appearance, with a velvety soft mouthfeel, and bursting with tropical hop flavours and aromas.
Napoleone Yarra Valley Apple Cider Coldstream, VIC 4.7% $7 $14 $26
MULTI AWARD WINNING! This combination of apple varieties delivers a unique flavour and the ideal balance of acidity, sweetness and tannins. Displaying bright aromas of crisp apple with subtle vanilla and cinnamon character from some minimal oak contact, this cider is still wonderfully refreshing with a clean, dry finish.
Wolf of the Willows Crisp Lager Mordialloc, VIC 4.2% $7 $14 $26
From the brewer - “Like the batter on your Fish & Chips or the crumb on your Parma, a good Lager should be satisfyingly CRISP. Styled on an American Light Lager, it's pale straw in colour with a crystal clear appearance. Subtle citrus hop notes and a light, dry profile, this Lager keeps you coming back for more. Low Calorie, high enjoyment.”
Stone & Wood ‘Pacific Ale’ Byron Bay, N.S.W. 4.4% $7 $14 $26
Brewed using all Australian barley, wheat and Galaxy hops, Pacific Ale is cloudy and golden with a big fruity aroma and a refreshing finish. After being dry hopped at the end of fermentation, Pacific Ale is then drawn straight from the storage tank at the brewery into kegs for your pleasure.
Brookvale Union Alcoholic Ginger Beer Brookvale, N.S.W. 4% $8 $16 $29
From the brewer – “Spicy yet mild, dry but wet, smooth but sharp, tight but loose – JUST GREAT TASTING GINGER BEER!”
Moo Brew Dark Ale Bridgewater, TAS 5% $7 $14 $26
Dark Ale, is lightly hopped with American Simcoe, Centennial & Cascade hops and uses the darker end of the spectrum of crystal malts, making for a nicely roasted dark beer that’s surprisingly good for a session.
Boatrocker ‘Northern Red’ English Red Ale VIC 4.5% $7 $14 $26
From the brewer – “Inspired by the ales of Northern England, we have crafted a Red Ale that walks the fine line of drinkability and robust flavour. Burnt caramel and biscuit dominate the palate with subtle fruity and herbal esters. Despite its rough edges, it's a brew with undeniable charm, perfect for those who appreciate a bit of grit with their pint.”
Fixation IPA Collingwood, VIC 6.4% $7.5 $15 $27
Four different new world hop varieties have gone into this IPA at all stages of the brewing process to lend a big juicy, fruity aroma, robust flavour and firm bitterness. There is a clean malt backbone with a few specialty malts for good measure, just enough to carry the ridiculously large hopping regime.
Bridge Road Brewers ‘Beechworth Pale Ale' Beechworth, VIC 4.8% $7 $14 $26
First brewed in 2005, Beechworth Pale Ale has earned its reputation as an ‘Aussie Craft Classic’. A new world pale ale brimming with hop aroma and flavour, it strikes a perfect balance between hops and malt. Lower bitterness and a clean finish make this a sessionable yet full flavoured pale ale that continues to stand the test of time.
