Our Range of Real Ales:

Golding Bitter 3.7% A light fragrant beer with a fruity aroma, a typical English 'session beer'

Challenger 5.0% Our special bitter is dry hopped with NZ Styrian Golding but don't be surprised if it has a bit more to it than the pint of bitter you remember from England.

Twisted Ankle 5.9% A strong dark ale this smooth strong dark mild has been one our house beers since our establishment in 2004, modelled on an old favourite of the owners - Theakstons Old Peculiar.

Hopback IPA 5.8% One for the real hopheads our Hopback IPA uses generous quantities of NZ Cascade hops and various American hop varieties as available to give a knock your socks off beer drinking experience.

Other Brews:

Sauvin Pilsner 5% A pilsner for hop heads! A New Zealand variation on the German style of pilsner using bucket loads of Nelson Sauvin hops. Available on draught.

Nokabollokov 8.0% Russian Imperial Stout.  This is a very strong dark beer, first brewed in the 18th century in London for export to the court of Catherine II of Russia.  The extra alcoholic strength was required to prevent the beer from freezing on its journey over the Russian plains.  Well, that was their story anyway! 

Enigma 9% Barley Wine.  This is a beer, not a wine.  Barley wine is a British term used histoirically to denote the stongest beer in a brewer's range of ales.  Enigma pours wiht a deep copper colour and has a soft floral aroma with hints of cherries.  Its sweet maltiness is balanced by the flavours of stone fruits and a robust hop bitterness.  Available only in 330ml bottles.
