KUNG FOO

RICE LAGER

“The Original Rice Lager”


STRENGTH4.6% ABV


BITTERNESS18 IBUs


AVAILABILITYDraught and 330ml bottles year round


AROMALight citrus, passionfruit


COLOURPale straw


FLAVOURSoft malt profile, low bitterness, citrus hop characters clean crisp finish


WHAT ON EARTH WERE WE THINKING?

We were thinking climate change, extra hot summers and beer gardens.

Kung Foo is super light and clean in flavour, but with more character than your commercial ‘blonde’ and ‘dry’ lagers.

In order to achieve the pale color and light body, we decided to use rice. Kung Foo is fermented with a traditional European lager yeast at cold temperatures, which further helps in producing a clean flavour profile.

Foo is then finished with a combination of American and European aroma hops which give the beer a depth which is not incorporated into typical domestic light/dry beers.

Kung Foo is made with rice and malted barley. Kung Foo is not gluten free.

STRENGTH4.7% ABV


BITTERNESS25 IBUs


AVAILABILITYDraught and 330ml bottles year round


AROMALight, malty, grassy


COLOURPale gold


FLAVOURLight maltiness, clean


DRINKING NOTES

Inspired by Andrew’s first car, Taxi was one of the original set of beers we offered at the brewery when it first opened. Back in 2007, many of our locals had never strayed outside the fold of beers offered by the large domestic brewers. We knew that we needed a stepping stone beer to get them off ‘draught’ and into ‘craft’.

Loosely labelled pilsner, Taxi more closely represents the Munich Helles (Blonde) lager style. Moderate to low bitterness, clean cold temperature fermentation and the retatrines use of fine German hops has resulted in an extremely approachable and sessionable lager beer. For new comers to the brewery, we also recommend they start (and finish) on Taxi.

Despite it’s light hearted name, Taxi is a well respected main pour at many Melbourne venues. It trumped the world’s oldest operating brewery Weinestephan to win the major trophy for Best European Style Lager at the 2013 Australian International Beer Awards.


 

GROWLER

AMERICAN BROWN ALE

“Goes Down Easy”


STRENGTH4.7% ABV


BITTERNESS26 IBUs


AVAILABILITYDraught and 330ml bottles year round


AROMAMalty, toasty, chocolate, citrus (American Hops)


COLOURLight brown, ruby highlights


FLAVOURMalt, chocolate, with citrusy hop notes


DRINKING NOTES

Growler was the very first beer ever produced in our Moorabbin based brewhouse – batch 0001GRL. At that time, American Brown Ale was not being brewed anywhere else in the country.

The very first home brew trial batch of this beer was submitted for judging at the 2006 Cascade Brewer’s Guild (Seattle WA) Cascade Cup and was judged “Best to Brew” amongst a field of over 100 beers. Since then, our commercially produced Growler American Brown Ale has won several awards including a Gold Medal at Beer Asia Competition 2010.

Growler is a full bodied brown which presents a full crystal based malt profile combined with prominent hop character from US Cascade hops.


 

GRIZZ

AMERICAN AMBER

“Grin and Bear it”


STRENGTH5.7% ABV


BITTERNESS30 IBUs


AVAILABILITYDraught and 330ml bottles year round


AROMACumquats, marmalade


COLOURAmber red


FLAVOURFull citrussy American hop character on robust malt base


DRINKING NOTES

Grizz is a full bodied amber ale showcasing fresh American hops from the Yakima Valley (Washington State).

The inspiration for this beer was Mac & Jack’s Amber – a Seattle staple draught offering that is rarely found outside of the Puget Sound region of Washington State. A beer Andrew came to love and one that justified the need to build a brewery in Melbourne.

Grizz American Amber is made with more than one pound of hops per US beer barrel – hopefully you’ll appreciate this in the glass.

We think it’s a great year round draught beer for those who appreciate big American ales.
