Red Sea IPA 6.6% IPA Cassels Red Sea IPA is our Red IPA racked into a cask with 6 fresh Bluff oysters added to the cask. The oysters have added further richness to the RIPA due to their salty nature.
Miss Grapefruit 4.9% Pale Ale Cassels Miss Grapefruit is a fruity pale ale cask-conditioned, primed with fresh-squeezed grapefruit - delicious!
Hot Chocolate 5.7% Milk Stout Cassels Hot Chocolate, with capsicum on the nose, initial heat from the chillies on the palate which singes softly initially before building to a crescendo, without getting too hot or loud to overpower - blends well with the smooth chocolatey character of the Milk Stout base.
Rye Pilsner 5% Pilsner The unique addition of rye brings an entirely new twist to this NZ-style pils. Notably bready from the triple malts, our mix of hops combines the classic aroma and fruity profiles of local NZ hops.
West Coast IPA 6.2% West Coast IPA Our heavy-handed dry hopping of a comprehensive mix of West Coast U.S.A hops with only a touch of ale malt has created an aggressively hoppy brew. With a hint of citrus and peppery pine flavours, the hop bitterness in this beer will wake up your tastebuds and pull you back for more.
Milk Stout 5.2% Milk Stout 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. Silver medal winner at the 2018 International Beer Awards, Bronze winner at the 2019 Dublin Craft Beer Cup, Silver winner at the 2018 Dublin Craft Beer Cup and Country Winner at the 2018 World Beer Awards.
American Pale Ale 5.4% American Pale Ale This delightfully fruity, aromatic beer gets its lead from the abundance of fresh West Coast U.S.A. hops. A top-fermented ale style, the American Pale Ale beer is a recent addition to the Cassels Brewing Co collection. The tropical fruit salad and passion fruit flavours give way to a clean and light bitter finish.
Pale Ale 4.9% Pale Ale World-renowned Nelson Sauvin hops deliver brazen, grassy, citrus-fruit aromatics, with flavours of white-wine, juicy peach, and orange-rind. Pilsner and Vienna malts lend toasted, bready malt flavours, and hints of caramel sweetness. A touch of wheat softens the lengthy bitterness and crisp finish; creating a uniquely smooth, sessionable New Zealand pale ale. Gold winner at 2019 AIBA Beer Awards, Bronze winner at 2018 Dublin Craft Beer Cup.
Red IPA 6.6% Red IPA Vibrant, copper-coloured, with ruby-red highlights, and a rich, tan head; our Red IPAs complexity is all too apparent. Prominent pine-needle and citrus hop aromas, bold flavours of bitter-orange and grapefruit. The toffee-sweet, caramel malts and creamier mouthfeel balance beautifully amidst lingering bitterness, gentle alcoholic warmth, and a subtle, toasty aftertaste. Bronze winner at the 2019 Dublin Beer Cup.
Dry Hopped Pilsner 5.3% Pilsner Pouring brilliantly clear and pale golden; our Dry Hopped Pilsner exemplifies the finest in New Zealand ingredients. Motueka and Nelson Sauvin hops contribute juicy lime, sauvignon grape, and subtle juniper berry characters. The predominantly Pilsner malt-base provides a crisp body. Cracker-like flavours and sweetness, perfectly complimenting the firm, bitter finish and refreshingly dry mineral aftertaste.
Dunkel 5.6% Dark Lager Bringing back one our old favourites as a special release, Dunkel is the German word for 'Dark' - this beer type indicates a traditional bavarian malty dark lager. A sweet aroma combining caramel and chocolate. The palate is smooth, creamy and gently carbonated with sweet, nutty, toasty and coffee flavours leading to a long dry finish. Won Trophy for Best in Class in 2013 at the NZ Brewers Guild Awards.
