Double Vision Expatriate Keg
5.6% American Pale Ale. Despite the sh*t show that’s happening in the U.S., we combined great glory and hop forces for Expatriate. With a light biscuity malt profile like Donald’s toupée, this is a fine drop to have on hand during any time of conflict, bigatory or self-righteous pompous-try.

Citrus, tropical, floral & pine notes from the hops with a light biscuity malt profile.

Epic Armageddon Keg
6.66% IPA. The Answer To Everything. In the beginning, there was nothing. Then an impish brewer piled a ludicrous amount of hops into a batch of beer.

It may be too huge for this fragile planet so enjoy this beer like it was the last one on Earth.

8 Wired Rendition 500ml BTL x12
7.5% Belgian Ale. Hopped and re- fermented with Brett. This beer pays homage to an age old monastery beer, famed among beer geeks all over the world. Brewed with NZ malts and hops, fermented with a Belgian ale strain, then re-fermented in the bottle with brettanomyces. Brewed in July 2016, this beer will be in it’s prime at the moment. Bone dry and effervescent, a good malt structure and lots of barnyardy, yet also fruity, character from the extended aging with our old friend, brettanomyces.

8 Wired Big Smoke Keg
6.2% Smoked Porter. Now what is this? A smoked beer?? It really isn’t as crazy as it sounds. 250 years ago virtually all beers were smoked (it’s true, Google it!), but with the dawning of the industrial revolution most of the smoke lifted. However, in the German town of Bamberg the ﬂame has quite literally been kept alive and to this day the town’s brewers produce world renowned beers brewed with their own special rauchmalz (beechwood smoked malt). We’ve taken our best porter recipe and added a good measure of that same Bamberg Rauchmalz. The smoke mingles beautifully with the rich, dark roasted chocolate ﬂavours of the porter without being overpowering. Although it pairs extremely well with smoked seafood, barbeques, strong cheeses and hearty stews, its food friendliness isn’t limited to savouries; chocolate and caramel based deserts are great companions too! Trust us; it really isn’t as crazy as it sounds.
