What's on tap:

  • American Pale Ale - All Cascade hops from kettle to fermenter.
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Pale Ale, Vienna, Carapils, Light Crystal
    Hops:Cascade
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:5.2%
    Style:American Pale Ale
    The first beer we ever made, American Pale Ale gives a fantastic idea of what we stand for at Batch: fresh, independent, unpasturised, unfiltered, natural, balanced. A combination of Vienna and caramel pilsner malt round off a malt bill that leans towards the drier end of the style, softening its body a touch, before big hits of Cascade hops from the whirlpool and fermentor give a complex burst of fresh cut grass, citrus stone fruit and a touch of pine. This is the beer that shows the quality and nuance you can expect from Batch Brewing Co, and it all started with Chris and Andrew in their backyards. We brew for you.
  • Elsie the Milk Stout - Nitrogenated stout with lactose
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:2-Row, Maris Otter, Roast, Light Crystal, Flaked Barley, Flaked Oats, Vienna, Chocolate, Lactose
    Hops:Willamette & Fuggles
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:4.4%
    Style:Milk Stout
    Elsie is made by combining unfermentable lactose with a malt bill so complex the brewers refer to it as their 'kitchen sink beer'. The result is a beer that's sweet and smooth and dark and roasty, with gentle touches of chocolate, coffee and cream. Served on nitrogen at the bar, but conditioned for the bottle, allowing yeast to naturally carbonate the stout for an incredibly thick and smooth texture. She's so tasty, you'll believe cows really can jump over the moon!
  • Hoppsy Mozy Nitro IPA - Nitro IPA with Mosaic
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Provenance Gairdner, Gladfield Wheat, Gladfield Gladiator, Lactose
    Hops:Mosaic
    Yeast:American Ale Yeast
    ABV:6.4%
    Style:IPA
    Woah, what's this? Yeah man, it's a nitro IPA and it'll blow your mind! Super charged with 5kgs of Mosaic hops added in the whirlpool and then dry hopped, giving you some real nice pineapple notes. But that's not it, we've added lactose in this IPA to help balance out that typical IPA bitterness giving you a nice, well rounded experience. But wait, there's even more! We've also put Nitrogen in this bad boy to make it even more smooth and creamy. People, this is an IPA style like you've never experienced before, and once you try it, you'll come back for more!
  • Into The Summer - Session Ale
    Tasting Notes:
    ABV:3.9%
    Style:Session Ale
  • Just Beer - extended lagering and gently hopped
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Voyager Hindmarsh, Malted Wheat, Cara Malt
    Hops:Summer & VIC Secret
    Yeast:Lager
    ABV:4.5%
    Style:Lager
    A lot of raw materials are used to brew the beer you drink, from water and electricity, to hops and cereal grains. That's why it's part of our goal to minimize the impact we have on our community, our land and our air. One small step we've taken is by directly supporting the farmers who justly care for our earth through their sustainable growing and harvesting of barley. Farm malted Hindmarsh barley from Voyager Craft Malt in the Riverina is the simple base for this simple beer. And the extended lagering and gentle hopping deliver a clean flavour that allows the beer to speak for itself. With every sip that you take, you can rest easy knowing that this beer is truly just - just for farmers, just for our community, Just Beer.
  • Pash the Magic Dragon - Fruited Sour Ale
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Gladfield American Ale, wheat malt, unmalted wheat
    Hops:gentle bittering
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:4.5%
    Style:Passion and Dragon Fruit Sour
    Pash the Magic Dragon lived by the brewery, and frollicked in a golden grist of flaked wheat and barley. His friend, Jackle Paper, loved that rascal Pash, and brought him malt to help him sour that crisp and tasty mash. Oh! Together they would sour wort with some lactic acid, Jackle kept a lookout to make sure it wasn't flaccid. But one wanted a sweet and yellow from some passionfruit, the other wanted pink and tart from some dragon fruit. Oh! The dragon and his friend, they bickered all night long, til they finally realised that neither one was wrong! They put each fruit into the beer and let it settle out, the friendship saved! The beer was great! Was there any doubt?!
  • Small Batch Dubbel
    Tasting Notes:
    ABV:8.5%
    Style:Dubbel
  • Tasman Tango Pale Ale - A Pale Ale that showcases both sides of the ditch
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Gladfield American, Gladfield Supernova, Gladfield Wheat, Gladfield Gladiator
    Hops:Rakua, Vic Secret
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:4.5%
    Style:South Pacific Ale
    This modern Pale Ale uniquely showcases the great ingredients from both sides of the ditch! On a base of soft & sweet local malt, a delicate floral bitterness of kiwi hops tangos with a big citrus & mango aroma from aussie hops in this crisp, bright and refreshing ale. Lets dance!
  • West Coast IPA - West Coast Hops
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Pale Ale, Carapils, Wheat
    Hops:Mosaic, Centennial, Chinook
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:5.8%
    Style:American IPA
    Of all the IPAs Batch has ever made, only one became a permanent fixture of the brewery - a testament to quality if ever there was one! Bright in colour, dry on the palate and thirst quenching in the extreme, wheat and pale malts compliment each other with nuance. Hops are added all through the boil and fermentor - Centennial and Chinook provide a generous base of juicy, chewy fruits, before Mosaic hops shine through with big hints of pineapple and tropical stone fruit. Balanced to precision, the bitterness in this IPA never overwhelms the palate. At the lower end of the IPA’s ABV spectrum, this beer is a faithful example of the West Coast style. High quality, precise, nuanced and fresh, this beer all of the qualities on which Batch prides itself.
  • What A Melon - Summer ale with El Dorado and pressed watermelon.
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Gladfield American, Malted Wheat, Carapils
    Hops:El Dorado
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:5.0%
    Style:Summer Ale
    We've decided to put the brewers to work carving up fruit by bringing back an old favourite again this year! A crisp and pale malt bill provides a refreshing back bone, while El Dorado hops lift an intensely tropical, sweet fruit, bubblegum aroma profile from the glass. To this, we add over 600 kg's of fresh watermelon. As that refermentation finishes, the beer left behind is thirst quenching and sweet to smell but dry to taste. The perfect beer to accompany the summer warmth. Summer, what a season. What a beer. What a Melon.

In Bottles / Growlers (but not on tap):

  • Buckley St. Brown Ale - Brown Ale
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Voyager Veloria, Gladfield Vienna, Dark Crystal, Light Crystal, Dark Chocolate, Flaked Oats
    Hops:East Kent Golding and Amarillo
    Yeast:Americal Ale
    ABV:4.2%
    Style:Brown Ale
    Buckley Street Brown Ale (a simple nod to our local area) is a beer that is fermented a touch lower than our other beers to give it a clean ester profile that lets the balanced malt and hops do the talking. The Chocolate, Voyager Veloria and mix of crystal malts give a pleasant roast character with a bit of body and sweetness. This is a beer for people who appreciate the subtle characteristics of a well made, very drinkable beer.
  • Tiny Coconut Bubbles - Coconut Wheat Ale
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Gladfield American Ale, Provenance Pale Malt, Malted Wheat, Unmalted Wheat, Lactose
    Hops:Cascade & Mosaic
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:4.8%
    Style:Wheat Ale
    Tiiiiiiiny bubbles... When Don Ho (the Elvis of Hawai'i) sang of feeling fine, we're positive he was drinking from a coconut at the time. And if not, he should have been! Our wheat beer recipe has its soft texture accentuated nicely by a moderate addition of lactose. Late in the brew and in the fermentor we add generous amounts of Cascade and Mosaic hops for their citrus and pineapple qualities. Add to this some toasted coconut in the kettle and the fermentor and you have this award winning beer. Coconut, cream, pineapple? We think Don would approve of a Pina Colada in a beer, don't you?
