Big & juicy, this west coast IPA is loaded with tropical hop flavours & balanced with a refreshing dry finish.

Young Henrys Newtowner

Country: Australia

Brewery: Young Henrys

Style: Pale Ale

ABV: 4.8%

Young Henrys wouldn’t be what it is without Newtown. It’s our home, community and inspiration. So when the suburb celebrated its sesquicentenary and we were invited to brew a unique beer to celebrate, we jumped at the chance. The resulting craft beer was an Aussie Pale Ale called Newtowner.

In a bit of a nod to the suburb’s past and present influences, we used a blend of Australian malts. Then we added three varieties of local hops to make it fun, fruity and even a little bitter - just like Newtown. This is a beer we wanted everyone in our community to enjoy, whether it was being thrown back at a gig or sipped slowly in a beer garden. The people responded and Newtowner is now a permanent part of our beer range.

Akasha Super Chill

Country: Australia

Brewery: Akasha Brewing Company

Style: Australian Pale Ale

Mountain Goat Billy The Mid

Country: Australia

Brewery: Mountain Goat

Style: Session Ale

ABV: 3.5%

If you think you know mid-strength beer, then you haven’t met Billy.

Brewed with New Zealand malts and American hops, Billy the Mid is an easy-drinking, transpacific pale ale that doesn’t compromise on flavour. Full-bodied, with citrus aromas and a crisp finish, this is mid-strength beer, Mountain Goat style.

Hawkers Hazy Pale

Country: Australia

Brewery: Hawkers Beer

Style: Hazy Pale Ale

ABV: 4.6%

Generously dry-hopped, deliciously hazy, and stunningly approachable. Massive juice characters abound from American and New Zealand hops, delivering the best of both worlds between New England style and sessionability.

Pirate Life South Coast Pale Ale

Country: Australia

Brewery: Pirate Life Brewing

Style: Pale Ale

ABV: 4.4%

This landmark pale encompasses our founding vision of ingenuity, our unwavering commitment to quality and the laid-back spirit of the South Coast - or as we Pirates prefer to call it, home.

Once poured, peach and citrus drift from the pint, spurring imagery of backyard trees laden with fruit. The first mouthful sends pineapple, sweet malt and a gentle bitterness across the palate. It's light-bodied, cruisy and brewed with the session in mind.

We were born on the Nullarbor and raised in a shed on the Adelaide Plain, and while we continue to grow, some things will never change, like our passion for making great beer and our enduring love of the South Coast.

South Coast Pale. Welcome home.

Kaiju! Pleazure Kruze

Brewery: Kaiju! Beer

Style: Hazy Pale Ale

Lurking off the coast of a hidden archipelago, OOdako’s relentless quest for farolacton juice is momentarily deferred as a beguiling water craft appears in the haze.

Pleasantly hazy sun kissed straw colour and a pillowy soft mouthfeel, the hop flavours blend perfectly with the juicy aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple and lychee effecting a super clean finish with just a hint of quenching bitterness.
