full of flavour. A touch a citris and a hint of bittering honey.5%alc

Tiddly Toad Lager
Tiddly Toad is our premium Lager. Our lager has delicious fullness, and more fine hops than a hyperactive toad. But it’s light enough to
ensure that no matter how much you drink, you’ll never feel like you’ve had enough. In fact, some Tiddly Toad fans believe that regular
drinking of this brew gives you more years before you croak.
Whistling Weasel Pale Ale
Whilst imbibing Whistling Weasel Pale Ale, you may wonder just what makes it so tasty and invigorating. It’s not the finest quality hops,
malt or barley. It’s not even the pure spring water that makes our Pale Ale so special. No, it’s got something to do with our whistling
brewer, who believes that whistling a tune while tending his brew adds a dash of joy and light-heartedness to every glass. So there you have it.
Pye-Eyed Possum Pilsner
It took months of careful fermentation and maturation to bring this excellent bottle of Pie-Eyed Possum to you. So savour it.
Delight in the rich, bitter flavour and the noble hop bouquet. Designed for serious beer drinkers, this pilsner is also fairly
high in alcohol. Which means that more than a few bottles might make you a bit unsteady on your feet. But don’t worry – should you
find yourself unexpectedly horizontal; simply explain to your friends that you are playing Possum.
Pickled Pig Porter
Pickled Pig Porter is a full, dark beer, slightly bitter, and perfect for cold-weather drinking. It is also brewed with pure spring water,
is rich in minerals, with no preservatives added. "So what?" you say. Well, that means that our delicious Porter is good for you – the more you drink,
the better you feel. It also means that Pickled Pig won’t give you a hangover. So you can get as pickled as… well, as a pig, and feel
fine tomorrow morning
Tipsy Tiger IPA
Did you know that our India Pale Ale was created out of necessity? One, a necessity to drink beer (obviously), and two, a necessity to
keep it from going sour on the long, sea voyage from England to India all those years ago. The solution? Up the alcohol content and add
it to an extra healthy dose of hops. 4.5%
It’s no coincidence that two of our favourite beverages are “brewed”. Both dark and delicious, and best enjoyed with a light, foamy head,
it makes complete sense to put beer and coffee together! So let’s combine our famous Pickled Pig Porter with imported chocolate malts and
a shot of smooth, dark roast Terbodore coffee. The result? An exquisite pick-me-up porter with a cappuccino finnish. Now when you arrive
home a little pickled, you can look her in the eye and say with all honesty, “But I’ve been ordering Cappuccinos all night dear!” 4.5%
Samango Ale mango ale
Some might say we’re a bunch of fruitloops! Perhaps we are, but we sure as heck don’t just hang about like a bunch of idle simians waiting
for good things to fall out the sky. Our brew masters are constantly coming up with fresh ideas to delight all different tastes. Eureka!
A new, light and fruity mango ale! This delicate brew has the slight hopsy bitterness of an ale, with a malty sweet kiss of mango.
You can be sure that after a few of these you’ll be having more fun than a barrel of monkeys! 4.1%
Wobbling Wombat summer ale
Short, largely nocturnal, with a tough rear hide, and unmistakably Australian! But enough about our CEO, let’s talk about our
Wobbling Wombat Summer Ale. A crisp, floral hop aroma is paired with a clean bitterness to give you a refreshing ale that’s perfect
for long sunny days. It’s so easy drinking in fact, that before you know it you may have slipped a few more into your pouch than expected
and be singing Waltzing Matilda at the top of your voice! But don’t worry, we all know the words and will join right in. 4.1%

than most other beers, and should pour crystal clear. As with our Weiss, our Pilsner is well balanced with slight Saaz and Hellertauer
hop flavours. 5.5%

This is our Indian Pale Ale. IPA’s are traditionally the most hopped of all beers and therefore will taste of various fruits and generally
be bitter. A good IPA should have a good balance between fruit and bitterness. Hopstrosity pours slightly cloudy, due to all the hop oils.
