Do what you want when and wherever you want, drink what you want. We take inspiration from interesting brewers and breweries, chefs and restaurants or even scientists and engineers. If there is ever a better way of doing something we want to find out about it, research it and if we find there is a benefit to it we will implement it. We need to make sure that we live well, that we take care of the environment and that we take care of each other. Good beer plays a big part in enriching our lives and that’s something we want to share with anyone’s nose and palate that is willing to tune in.

Throwback 3.5% 35 IBU Session Pouring a hazy golden colour the first thing that hits you is the aroma of fresh hops pouring out of the glass. Light bodied with a lovely carbonation, this mid strength IPA certainly holds nothing back on flavour. Look for a citrus/piney hit of fresh hops on the palate with a light malt backing and slight bitterness. Ideal for that Sunday BBQ.
Pale Ale 5.4% 50 IBU West Coast Pale While hops are central again here... they're deeper and darker than those found in the Throwback or IIPA, with some of that pine forest floor character you expect from old school West Coast hops alongside the citrus elements, and are joined by prominent sharp caramel malts to create a creamy lushness on the palate. There's something herbal there too and a hearty bitterness to wrap things up
IPA 6.8% 60 IBU IPA This is quite an important beer as it fills in a pretty big gap: we have a smashable mid, a well-balanced Pale Ale and a big broody, dank hop-bomb of a Double IPA – what’s this IPA like? Bright, fruity and full of liquid fun.
Mosaic 7.0% 58 IBU IPA We decided to brew a homage to the most delicious of hops. The plan was pretty straight forward: use a simple malt bill and let the Mosaic do the talking. The resulting beer is as the name implies; a kaleidoscopic journey through tropical flavours. Somehow, Mosaic finds a way to impart every delicious flavour you ask of hops, all on its own. Backed by a clean, light malt bill it's the beer equivalent of a fruit punch juice box.
Stout 7.2% 60 IBU Stout Brewed with Oats, Black and Chocolate malts, EKG, Fuggles and Columbus hops, Pirate Life Stout is perfect for the cooler months. The malts take centre stage with a cacophony of coffee, chocolate and sticky date pudding and a rich creamy mouthfeel thanks to the oats. Columbus smacks the palate with a healthy dose of bitterness while late additions of EKG and Fuggles lend a gentle, earthy spiciness to the beer.
IIPA 8.8% 120 IBU IIPA Pirate Life’s IIPA comes on like a freight train, bursting with citrus aromas and belting you in the back palate with hop bitterness. Fortunately all that action is balanced by a strong hop base and what they call “fun juice”; that is, alcohol. The IIPA is 8.8 per cent alcohol by volume. It is a lot, but it adds an important rounding quality to the beer.
