A refreshing, light, hoppy, sour and very fruity tasting beer inspired by traditional Berliner Weisse ales. Naturally soured by live cultures and hopped with American and New Zealand hops. It's Juicy, dude. ABV:4%
Designed to knock your socks off while keeping your feet on the ground, we wanted a beer that was as electric as a one pint wonder IPA. This session strength IPA has a bounty of American and New Zealand hops delivering maximum flavour, minimum regret. ABV:4.4%
Our interpretation of a New Zealand hopped pale ale can best be described as Tropidelic. With plenty of exotic fruit flavours from the hops it's an island orchard of fresh fruit salad but with the characteristic 8 Wired touch of balance, as you would imagine.ABV: 5%
Flying Fortress Ale symbolises everything great about beer: a big taste, a graceful aroma and two massive engines on each wing. The malts are Pale Ale combined with chocolate and caramel variants while the hops are NZ Motueka and Pacific Jade. Ardmore Airport, just 5km from the brewery, was originally built for these beautiful behemoths. Adjust your helmet and strap yourself in.
Back in the British Raj, elephant riding, tea-swilling settlers were in dire need of rescuing from the Indian sun. And so the India Pale Ale was born. Brewed with extra hops so it'd survive the voyage east, it was imbued with floral aromas, malty sweetness and a lingering dry finish. But enough of that Mumbo Jumbo. Stretch out on the verandah and enjoy.
The Bouncing Czech is named after the town of Pizen (Pilsen) in what is now the Czech Republic. For centuries Pizen produced a beer famed for its strong hoppy taste. For a similar style we use NZ Cascade and Pacifica hops to produce a characterful pilsener with explosions of citrus. It'll bounce round your mouth like a rabbit on a trampoline.
The 18th Amendment brought about the darkest period of American history. (No, not The Brady Bunch Movie, Prohibition.) The ban on alcohol meant you couldn't get a decent beer anywhere, unless, of course, you 'knew a guy'. This A.P.A., brewed in honour of your friendly, local bootlegger, is loaded with all-American hops, notes of citrus, and a crisp, bitter finish. Enjoy it quick before someone makes fun illegal again
A single hop Pale Ale using South Island Gladfield toffee, ale and roasted malts to show case the incredible citrus, grapefruit and Sauvin-like aromas of the RiwakaTM hop. The American Ale yeast further expresses fruity supporting notes to compliment this vibrant, hop-forward beer. With a good alcohol and malt weight this beer will capture your imagination.
Powder Hounds are passionate - some might say obsessive - about seeking out the freshest, highest quality powder (aka - snow, for those not in the know). Here at BRB, we’re equally as obsessed with quality and flavour. That’s why we’ve created this extra pale ale. While not quite white, it’s lighter than a pale ale, with refreshing citrus flavours and a mild biscuit tone. The search is over.

2019 World Beer Awards - World’s Best Milk Stout & Porter.
Obsidian-black with a velvety, tan head, our Milk Stout is traditionally brewed with non-fermentable lactose sugar for a luscious, full-bodied mouthfeel. Aromas of bittersweet chocolate, dried fruits, and bold coffee-and-cream flavours all descend on the senses, while soft roasted-malt bitterness keeps the sweetness in check. Welcome to the dark side of craft beer. The best stout in the world
