Epic Dankomatic IPA
Epic Brewing have really cornered the IPA market and this new release aptly named Dankomatic is bursting with pungent tropical fruit. Highly aromatic, passionfruit and pineapple jump out of the glass with a full and flavoursome body, yet a refreshingly light palate, hoppy, but not overly bitter. At 7.6% this IPA is dangerously drinkable and we can see ourselves consuming serious amounts of this. 7.6% ABV - 6 Standard Drinks per litre
Mcleod's Tropical Cyclone Double IPA
The McLeod’s brewery is located north of Auckland in Waipu. Although being affectionately known as the ‘winterless north’ it does from time to time have its fair share of bad weather. Rumour has it that during one particularly bad cyclone the brewers were forced to hunker down in the brewery. So bad was this storm, that they thought they may never brew again. It was decided that they’d brew one last ‘mac-daddy’ double IPA – the one beer to rule them all, they threw all the remaining hops in the tank and let the malt do its thing. Tropical Cyclone was born. The storm passed, and the beer tasted bloody awesome, with perfumed, floral and tropical aromas balanced by big juicy hops. Show respect to this beer, as you would a relentless cyclone and enjoy in the comfort of your home. 8.0% ABV 6.3 Standard drinks per litre
Hallertau Marzenbier Oktoberfest Beer
We’re celebrating Oktoberfest with our mates at Hallertau with their new Marzenbier, a lager style that originated in Bavaria and is traditionally served at Oktoberfest. Pouring a golden bronze, it has a wonderfully fresh perfumed hop aroma with a remarkably smooth, biscuit malt palate that is beautifully balanced but leans to the hoppy side for a lager. Pour yourself a pint, don a Bavarian barmaid costume and pretend you’re partying in Europe! 5.8% 4.6 Std
McLeod's Traders Scotch Ale
The first in a series of Northland-inspired beers, the Traders Scotch Ale includes the native New Zealand fern, horopito. Horopito was used extensively in traditional Maori medicine,its antiseptic properties made it a diverse cure-all for many ailments. Due to its antiseptic properties, the fern had to be batch dried and added after ferment so as to not kill the yeast.This seasonal release pours a rich medium red, with balanced hop character while the horopito adds an earthy, almost smoky aroma and peppery, smooth mouthfeel. So take your medicine, drink up and enjoy this delightful malty monster. 7.2% ABV 5.7 Standard drinks per litre
Sunshine Brewery #nofilter Hazy East Coast
The phrase “#nofilter” is more common with millennials on social media platforms than with bearded, craft beer drinkers. What is common with the latter demographic is the trend towards hazy, unfiltered IPA’s, commonly called East Coast or New England IPA’s. Sunshine Brewery has been brewing for almost 40 years, but it took a long journey to Gisborne by their young buck of a sales manager to convince them their IPA would look better unfiltered. Channel your inner socialite and #nofilter! 6% 4.7 Std Drinks
Garage Project - HAPI DAZE
Consistently one of our highest selling beers, it was about time that we put this juicy number on tap. Hapi, the Māori word for hop, inspires this truly Pacific Pale Ale brewed with Motueka, Wai-iti, Riwaka and Nelson Sauvin hops. Lots of ripe tropical and stonefruit hop flavour make this beautifully hop forward yet with low bitterness, resulting in a dangerously sessionable pale ale. 4.6% ABV - 3.6 Standard Drinks per litre
Three Boys Planet Zythos IPA
Planet Zythos is a single hopped IPA showcasing the Zythos hop variety. Zythos hops brings papaya, tangerine and hints of pine aromas that flow through on the palate with a zesty bitterness.

Garage Project Pernicious Weed IPA
This has to be one of Garage Projects most popular IPA’s, arguably Pernicious Weed cemented Garage Project at the forefront of the New Zealand craft beer scene. When IPA’s were first being developed in the UK in the 1500’s there was uproar about the copious amounts of hops being used. The common folk called them wicked, pernicious weeds, little did they know that these ‘weeds’ form the heart of great flavoursome beers. The artwork for this beer depicts a kind of War of the Worlds scene where giant hop plants are attacking non-IPA drinkers with shots of hop resin. This is an apt interpretation for this beer which is loaded with Nelson Sauvin and Rakau giving a big bold hop punch with tropical stone fruit and zesty characters. 8.0% ABV 6.3 Standard drinks per litre
Epic NZ Pilsner
NZ grown Riwaka hops are so popular and in demand that NZ Hops don’t even export them anymore, as they can’t grow enough to keep up with local demand. This year Epic used their whole years allocation on one batch of beer and you’re about to taste it! Aromas of cut grass and passionfruit come through on the flavour with a zesty citrus zing and a fresh lingering bitterness. 5% 3.9 Std Drinks
8 Wired Grapefruit Hippy
If you are a sour fan, then you will have tried 8 Wired Hippy Berliner and it's big brother Cucumber Hippy, cult favourites for any sour lover. Our excitement reached next level when we saw that a Grapefruit and Tangello version had been released just in time for summer. The base beer is a refreshing, light, hoppy and sour beer naturally soured with live cultures and hopped with American and New Zealand hops. Add a citrus , zesty burst of grapefruit and Tangello and you have a winner. A must try for all beer lovers! 4.5% ABV - 3.9 Standard Drinks per litre
Inspired by the original American Pale Ale brewed by Tuatara in Paraparaumu and the American hop shortage of 2011 the Aotearoa pale ale was born using the best carefully selected NZ hops instead of the American versions. These hops impart fragrant leafy, grassy and fruity, tangy flavours which are followed by secondary caramel biscuit and toffee, malt accents. It has a beautiful orange-tinged colour, crowned with a thick cloud of foamy head that lasts until the bottom of the glass and the last bitter finish is infused by the Pacific Jade hops. Tuatara’s improvisation has produced a spectacular, unique and beautifully balanced pale ale that will make any Kiwi proud of what they have achieved as they imbibe every last precious hoppy drop.
McLeod's 802 Unfiltered IPA Series #14
McLeod's 802 #14 Unfiltered IPA is finally here! Continuing their 802 Series of unfiltered IPAs, #14 carries on the tradition in true form with Enigma, Mosaic & Columbus hops. Pouring hazy orange with big ripe rock melon & fruity cannabis on the nose, it's at once dank & fruity with soft malt & a hint of bitterness. 6.4% ABV - 5.1 Standard Drinks per Litre
Garage Project Party & Bullshit IPA
This is a cult favourite from Garage Project, a beast of a beer packing an intense mango and tropical fruit hit from US big guns Simcoe and Mosaic. It’s big and juicy, like sippin’ hazy hop nectar from a can. Appropriately named after Biggie, this IPA sure is a biggie filled with mango, pineapple and guava flavours that will knock your socks off. 6.2% 4.9 Std Drinks
