THE TAP BEER
It’s a style that has no traditional home, yet is perfectly at home on the beach or while you’re on holidays. An easy drinking, clean lager with a generous tropical fruit hop punch. A new world style of lager that celebrates vibrant, tropical hop flavours and aromas in an understated, laidback Queensland kind of way.
A complex and rich stout featuring oats, roasted malt and lactose. For those who like their milk with cream still in it and their coffee strong. This dark ale may spark a dairy revolution in Kangaroo Point! Trust us, it’s a possibility…
Dr Swift’s Golden Ale
Modest ABV, golden coloured ale with pleasant hop character and endless drinkability. It’s been 170 years since Dr Swift claimed he first ‘found’ gold in Kangaroo Point which sparked a frenzy of would-be fossickers to descend on the site. Dr Swift’s new gold is a sessionable ale that guarantees not to disappoint.
Sea Legs Pale Ale
Classic, West Coast style American Pale Ale with firm bitterness. Full malt flavour and dry hop aroma. As a style, American Pale Ale helped kick off a worldwide revolution in good beer; Sea Legs Pale Ale is a reverent ‘tip of the hat’ and ‘raising of the glass’ to the hero of modern flavour.
West Coast IPA in all its unapologetically over hopped glory. A beer with tonnes of flavour, bitterness and booze. Named for a close call involving a big ship, an angry river and an unassuming hero who managed to tame the juggernaut.
The ship, Robert Miller, was so big (239 metres long and 15 metres high to be exact) that when the 1974 floods caused it to break from its moorings at Evan Deakin’s ‘Frank Nicklin Dry Dock’ it was feared it might dam the river and compound flooding upstream. Captain Philip Gibson was the harbour master who heroically prevented it. Captain Gibson is certainly the picture of a bloke who well and truly has his sea legs, literally and metaphorically!
