Saltwater Blonde Lager

4% ABV

The sun is high and the waves are pumping! So all you need now is an easy drinking, crisp and clean lager! Well?...Grab yourself a Saltwater Blonde! Run a hand through your hair and relax because it's always summer at the Mount... or wherever you're holding one of these sessionable lagers.   

A crisp and clean, easy drinking lager perfect for drinking on a hot summer day in Mt Maunganui. 

 

Manuka Hussy 

4.5% ABV 20 IBU

Beers are rad aren't they? Their little buzzy bodies are at it all day collecting magic Manuka dust, which they take back to their pad and turn into liquid gold! We thought about combining the fruits of their efforts with ours and discovered the sweet Manuka aroma and flavour was a high five to this light, smooth bodied beer! Thank you buzzy bees!  

A golden ale infused with local Mossops Manuka Honey, gives a sweet honey aroma and flavour, light body and smooth low bitterness. 

 

  

 Blowhole Pale Ale

4.5% ABV

Most days we're pretty deep in the brewery and despite a layer of blubber under our skin we too, much like the whale have to come to the surface for a breather every now then then. You won't find us blowing a spout of brine through our nostrils though rather a golden liquid with juicy-tropical flavours and aromas will be erupting from our vessels before we re-submerge. 

Tropical -Juicy fruit aroma and flavour, malty with low bitterness

 

 

Kraken IPA 

6% ABV

The Kraken is an enormous mythical creature said to appear off the coat of Norway...But we have a different story because one day we heard a lot of bubbling and out form the fermenting tanks came this enormous flavour of an IPA! Instead of tentacles it had an enormous flavour with a smooth and balanced bitterness! 

Resinous pin-citrus aroma and flavour, balanced with a light malt base and a balanced bitterness. A perfect match for spicy food.

Mermaids Mirth APA 

6% ABV 50 IBU

Mermaids are conventionally thought of as beautiful with long flowing golden hair... and chance may have it, we think the same of our American Pale Ale. Yes indeed... she's a stunner! with a smooth tropical fruit aroma which is matched only by her big citrus flavour! It's not a myth! It's or Mirth... Our Merdaids Mirth  

Our pride and joy, the Mermaids Mirth is a big hoppy experience with a minimal bitterness. Sweet citrus flavour and aroma bursting out of each can, bottle or glass - you'll find it hard to put this one down.  

 

 

 

 

Crimson Tide 

6% ABV

The Crimson Tide is a bit of an apocalyptic assault on your taste buds! Imagine each sip turning into a 10ft monster charging around your mouth with mr tasty Mcbones throwing columbus, amarillo and Nelson Sauvin hops at every turn and twist. Now shake it off and paddle back out there for the next sip and remember, local rules only. 

A New Zealand Amber Ale that pours a deep red and is laced with generous amounts of Chinook, NZ Cascade and Nelson Sauvin hops - way too easy drinking for 6%. 

 

 

 

Black Beard Coffee Stout 

5.5%

A medium bodied stout with a dry roasted coffee finish. Hints of chocolate and toffee flavour and aroma are derived from a combination of premium Flight coffee variety and carefully selected specialty malts. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Strawberry & Lime Cider 

4.5%

Flavoured with the finest NZ apples and infused with the taste of summer, strawberry and zesty lime, these flavours offer a medium sweetness and a tart finsih
