Tea leafed IPA.
When the team behind the Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular asked us to create a special beer for their 2012 festival, we started by searching for musical inspiration from their Australian homeland. The tunes lead us on a wild conceptual ride but we ended up settling on this hugely floral India Pale Ale that is “dry-leafed” with a massive load of Earl Grey tea.
Gunnamatta – the instrumental opening track of Paul Kelly’s 2004 album Ways and Means -refers to a beach break on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula and had us thinking of good friends, cups of tea, surf, beer and rock ‘n’ roll!
As Paul Kelly says himself: “Remember, swim between the flags.”
Press the button, go ahead. What are you waiting for? Your mama’s not coming this time. Don’t slow down. Hammer it.
Start with huge grapefruit aroma. Pile on more bitterness than the human palate (or nipple) can detect, ride the anarchy and caramel craziness and let the devastatingly bitter finish drill straight through your taste buds.
Put a bullet in the head of mediocrity, raise hell and revel in bitter craft awesomeness. This beer is the end of the line. The hopped-up, puckered mouthed extreme of craft brewing. This beer is bitter. Very bitter. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Malt: Extra Pale
Hops: Amarillo, Centennial, Citra, Columbus, Simcoe
An American IPA with a bitter edge that will push your citrus tolerance to the brink and back; Elvis Juice is loaded with tart pithy grapefruit peel. This IPA has a caramel malt base, supporting a full frontal citrus overload – grapefruit peel piled on top of intense us aroma hops. Waves of crashing pine, orange and grapefruit round out this citrus infused IPA.
Malts: Cara, Extra Pale
Hops: Amarillo, Citra, Magnum, Mosaic, Simcoe
Welcome to a post Punk apocalyptic mother fucker of a pale ale.
A beer that spent its formative years Blitzkrieg bopping around India and the sub continent. Quintessential Empire with an anarchic twist.
God save the Queen and all who sail in her. Raising a Stiff Little Finger to IPAs that have come before and those it is yet to meet.
Turn up the volume Pay the man. Embrace the punked up, fucked up outlaw elite.
Never Mind the Bollocks this is the real shit.
Marris Otter Extra Pale.

O’Hara’s Irish Stout
Tripel Karmeliet is still brewed to an authentic beer recipe from 1679 originating in the former Carmelite monastery in Dendermonde. Written over 300 years ago, this recipe describes the use of three kinds of grain: wheat, oats and barley.
The name Tripel karmeliet thus refers both to its origin and its in-bottle refermentation. From many trial brews of multigrain tripels carried out at our brewery in the 90s, it appears that the particular historic combination of the 3 kinds of grain still remains the ideal blend.
NB: Depending on the location and batch, this beer can be either 8.5% or 8.7%. Please do not post an edit request asking to change it from one to the other.
The allusion to pink elephants and the choice of names is not due to chance. With a particular character, the unique taste of results from the use of three different kinds of yeast. The result is a finish of peppery bitterness without aggression. The gray bottle hides a mystery awaiting discovery by the none faint of heart.
Mooie Nel IPA / Northsea IPA
Jopen Northsea IPA is an IPA (India Pale Ale) or, in old Dutch, a ‘Duraebel Scheepsbier’. These beers
were extra strongly brewed and extra hopped so that they could be taken along on the long sea voyages to the Dutch East Indies (current-day Indonesia). Nowadays this type of beer is making a comeback because American brewers have breathed new life into this brewing style. This hoppy
amber beer is named after the lake between the towns of Spaarndam and Haarlem, the Mooie Nel (literally: Beautiful Nel). The beer has received an extra hop addition to the tank after fermentation to give it a clear hop character. Silver medal winner Brussels beer Challenge 2014.

FF Lekker Met Je Bek In Het Zonnetje
Summer! Sunshine! Finally the sun reached us and our part of this globe started to get warmer! Summer is present and in Holland we move our asses to the-outside! Sitting in the sunshine on roofs, parks and terrasses!
Therefore we created ‘’FF lekker met je bek in het zonnetje’’ (your face sitting full blown in the sun) a sessionable pale ale, low bodied, crisp fresh and uber hoppy. Ideal fit for those summer afternoons. Even in between work!
Dikke lul 3 bier!
1-2-3 en tot de 4. Het maakt niet uit, dikke lul drie bier! If you are not from the Netherlands please do not translate the name of this beer! (Obviously you are going to now!) However this extraordinary hoppy pale ale was named after a Dutch and even Haarlem’ saying (found out after we made the beer). Awesome hop forward and dry-ridiculously-hopped American Pale Ale. Light/medium bodied and a lot of dank hops in it. The good stuff ☺
