Malt is the base of every beer. Malt is grain that has been germinated and then dried. We use many different types of malt to give body, color and flavor to the beer.

Pilsner & Wheat

Aaahhh… hops. We love them! Hops are flowers used primarily as a bittering, flavouring, and stability agent in beer. In our beers most hops add floral and fruity flavours and aromas.

Tettnanger & Amarillo

Cubic Centimetre. So how big is the packaging?

Yuzu & Elderflower
Beer Specs

For the 2 nd sour ale in our ‘Once Upon a Time in…’ series, we go big in Japan. But this ain’t no touristy cherry blossom beer. No Sir-san! Pumped full of yuzu and elderflower, this Berliner Weisse is as razor sharp as a katana sword. More Yakuza Owl than barn owl, if you know what we mean. Brewed democratically for non-conformist corporate types and tattooed underworld scum.
