PICK YOUR POISON
With our on-site Co-Lab Brewery partners Lunar Brew, we are ensured of the finest artisan small batch beer. We are lucky to have 3 brew-masters with each their own signature beers.
Swart Sophie, our Porter, painstakingly developed by our very own brew-master and Gian Groen. Not only did it come first, porter was actually popularized by Arthur Guinness himself, way before the Stout. We take the depth and complexity of the classic porter style to uncharted, craft brewed territory and play wildly with freedom in the dark side of the pool… Expect flavors like bittersweet chocolate, caramel, and hints of coffee.
The Monroe our hoppy blonde is a combination of sweet biscuit malts with Southern Passion hops to bring a delicate, light IBU and distinctly golden beer packed with flavour and fruity aromas. Much like her namesake, Marilyn Monroe, this blonde is elegant, complex and irresistible. Perfectly crispy on a summers day, this is an all year, all weather sort of beer.
The Saison (meaning season) style of beer is packed with fruity and spicy flavours, embedded in a light sweetness with a crisp dry finish. It has a very similar base recipe to the Monroe, but is fermented with a specially selected yeast of Belgian origin to pack this golden beer full of flavor.
Texan Red This Red beer is bold and brave, grainy on the front, with very delicate unimposing hops to tie the flavors together. Designed to accompany beautiful BBQ food, with touches of Roasted Barley and Oats, to give a silky mouthfeel.
Texan Brown An old legendary style, and forerunner to the recent American Brown, this beer harps back to an era of compromise between German and British settlers to Texas. The result is a hop-forward brown ale, but lower in IBU than the modern American Brown. Designed for Cowboys.
