Beer StylesLearn about our styles and yours
For the lovers of hops, malts and suds, we’ve also installed an impressive wall of beer that will delight the beer aficionados and fans of craft breweries alike. Laid out with the same convention of our wine section, you’ll find 5 beer styles to peruse. If you love the merits of a nice light Pilsner then you’ll want to shop in our Clean section but if you’re after something a little more dark and mysterious then Robust is the section for you.
Simple and Straightforward
When you think of simple and uncomplicated you can’t help but think of a guy in his college freshmen year. The beers that we’ve categorized as Clean are straightforward and unassuming with bright flavours and not too much complexity. You’ll enjoy these beers more than a keg stand and find them to be about as fresh as a 19 year-old guy at an all girl frat party. Big time!
Light and easy, simple Lagers, Pilsners & Blonde Ales.
Find your zen on our beer wall
Life Coaches and self-help books will tell you that balance is the key to a happy life. That may true but when we’re talking about a balanced style of beer we’re talking about the merits of a good pale ale with well integrated hop and malt flavours. Balanced beers won’t help you understand the deeper meaning of life but they’re still worth sampling for their easy-drinking quality. Take that Deepak Chopra!
Brews such as Brown Ales, Red Ales, Cream Ales, Black Lagers & Dunkels.
For your fun side, beers not meant to be taken too seriously
There is fruity like the Village People and there is fruity like wonderfully citrus kissed Hefeweizen, warm kirsch Belgians and bubbly orchard fruit ciders. While there is no denying the fun of disco and flamboyant cowboys, our Fruity section will give you options to keep you singing and dancing all year long. This is an amiable selection to accompany garden time, dinner parties and of course they pair wonderfully with dessert.
If you’re after a Cider, Radler or any fruit infused brew, you’ll find it here alongside Wheat beers.
The safe way to have an intense experience…
Here’s a short list of things that are truly intense: squirrel suit jumping, big wave surfing and the insane ramblings of Gary Busey. While our Intense selection of beers could be described as big and loud, they certainly won’t lead to death on impact, shark attacks or being verbally abused on Celebrity Apprentice. You’ll love the IPAs and scrumptious Trapist ales. Gary agrees.
Some like it hopped! Here you’ll find IPAs, DIPAs, Trappist brews, Sours & Barleywines.
Beer that leaves an impression
Powerful, sturdy and strapping are all great words to describe the Robust section. Everything you find here possesses strong brawny flavours that leave a lasting impression. Just think back to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s version of Conan the Barbarian; despite the horrifically bad acting that comes with those 80s classics we just can’t help but love the brute force and thick accent. Conan would call you an infidel for drinking anything else.
Home to heartier brews like Stouts and Porters & some Barrel Aged offerings.
