The Brewery

Our brewery is off-site in Short Street, Ulverstone. This is where the magic happens. We put our beers in cans and sell them to only the best bottleshops and cafes around. We have 6 beers in our core range – Pale Ale, Draught, XPA, Brown Ale, IPA and Lager. We are always experimenting with new brews, all of which can be found on tap at the Wharf Bar.

The Beers

We produce 6 beers in our core range;

Hazard Pale Ale 5% – Named after our Kingswood Ute, Hazard is an American style Pale Ale with a uteload of Australian Hops. We use Cascade and Vic Secret hops during the boil, as well as a dry addition post-ferment. A generous amount of crystal malt is used in the mash to provide a malt sweetness, as well as an attractive amber colour.

North-West Draught 4.7% – A German style ale with an Australian twist. NW Draught is a refreshing beer, brewed with Vic Secret hops as a single whirlpool addition. We use a good amount of wheat malt in this recipe to add body to the final product.

Clocktown Brown Ale 5.5% – Named after the clocktower shrine in Ulverstone, our Brown Ale is dark and malty, but still very sessionable. We use 6.3% chocolate malt to add a deep brown colour and that delicious chocolate malt flavour. This is balanced by a solid bitterness provided by Cascade and Columbus hops early in the boil.

Xtra Button XPA 4.6% – An Extra Pale Ale, meaning light in colour but not in flavour. Our XPA is packed with the Australian hop varieties Galaxy and Enigma, which provide a recognisable flavour for the hop fanatic. Our XPA is created using pale, munich and wheat malt, to provide a subtle malt backbone.

Wilderness IPA 6% – A big and bold West Coast style IPA (India Pale Ale). This beer is full of hop flavour, but balanced with a malt sweetness and bitterness, just the way a good west coast IPA should be. We use pale, wheat, crystal and munich malt to develop a strong malt base, then hop it generously with Cascade, Amarillo and Mosaic late in the boil, and as a dry addition post-ferment.

Short Street Lager 3.5% – Our lager is a refreshing, sessionable drop, light in flavour and alcohol content. We use 50:50 Pilsner and Vienna malt, and a single bittering addition of Hallertau hops. We don’t like to over complicate this beer. It is a beery beer.
