Our beers are all based on Gods and monsters from Greek Mythology. Their individual characteristics are strongly represented by the style and type of beer we create for you. We are pleased to introduce you to our line up.
AT THE BAR NOW (WELL SOMETIMES WE MIX IT UP A BIT, CONTACT US IF YOU NEED TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS ON):
Kronos Dark Strong Ale 2019: 11%
Kronos is back and the big guy has had a makeover! This year we’ve gone down the dark Strong ale route. We’ve chosen lots of elements to lend raisin and port wine like characters. Big booze which is deliberately evident young this year which will settle with cellaring and age. Drying influence comes from lifted bitterness, a Belgian Abbey strain and conditioning on port barrel oak chips.
Sit down, pop your smokers jacket on, bust out your fine goblet/s and enjoy
Medusa Black IPA: 6.5%
Ah our much awaited re release and first limited can release! Punchy dark citrus is your entry point. Palate is courtesy of layered soft toast, pale crystal and red malts with the signature mocha citrus tail. Bitterness is well disguised amongst character malts and extremely generous dry hopping. With much pleasure we present: Medusa Black IPA by Helios Brewing Company.
Apollo XPA ABV: 6.0%
To celebrate our 50th brewday we knocked up something special with Tony and Jayne (two of the three business owners). The design brief was Australian and New Zealand raw materials and hop forward. Cooper Single Origin Heritage malt ex kangaroo Island got the nod and we went left of centre with ye olde school Super Pride, new school Kohatu and Rakau from NZ.
The nose bursts with fresh Orange and combines with, as the Rakau tasting notes say (The Whole Orchard!!) all sitting on top of soft vanilla and lightly toasted malts with balanced bitterness.
Khaos IPA ABV: 6.0%
Khaos is our new IPA brewed on 28/11 to celebrate the date of our very first brewday.
Whilst not a behemoth at 6% and 50 odd bitterness units it will surely punch you right in your nose holes.
100% Voyager malts (grown and malted in NSW), Veloria and Vienna Schooner lay the foundation for layers and layers of dry hopping. El Dorado, Centennial, Citra and Vic secret are double dry hopped. Pine, clean citrus and tropical fruit leap from the glass. These are a few of our favourite things!
In Greek mythology, Khaos is the primeval state of existence from which the first gods appeared. In other words, the dark void of space. Get amongst it.
Eris Apple Cider ABV: 5%
Our house brewed apple cider will be just the thing for our warm Brisbane climate. On the sweeter side of dry, well balanced with light tart acidity will tempt you into more than one!
Poseidon West Coast Pale Ale
The god of the sea, Poseidon, is celebrated in this American West Coast pale ale. With wave after wave of fresh American hops and a malt backbone to surf over the palette.
ABV 5.3 %
The Goddess Ravishing Red Rye
With a nod to Aphrodite, the goddess of love, this seductive red ale has hints of spiciness from rye and liberal use of Australian hops. It will be difficult to resist her charms.
Zeus Double IPA
The king of the Gods has hurled two thunderbolts of bitterness into this strong, but malt-balanced beer. Mere mortals probably aren’t worthy. Are you?
Hades Bitter Chocolate Stout
Don’t be afraid of the darkness of the underworld. This stout is full-bodied but completely approachable. Fermented with roasted cacao nibs and fresh vanilla beans, there is a faint real chocolate/vanilla aroma and coffee bitterness but no chocolate sweetness.
Midas’ Golden Ale
In his greed, King Midas wished for everything he touched to turn to gold. Lonely, hungry, and thirsty he repented and renounced his throne to live a humble and happy life. Midas’ Golden ale is refreshing with a crisp bitterness from layers of Australian and Kiwi hops; it is a perfect beer for a Queensland summer day.
Athena’s Scotch Ale
Revered for her wisdom and balance, Athena lends her name to this powerful and well rounded dark red ale. With toasted malt body and low bitterness, this ale will win the respect of any malt lover.
