THE BEERS

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.

COMING SOON!!

Zephyrus Red Session NEIPA ABV: 3.8%



Brewed especially for Beer In Cider. Available at the event on the Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd September: https://www.beerincider.com/brisbane/beer

Another sub style of a sub style! Get on the haze train. Ours is restrained on many levels but has no end of complexity. It throws a sensible haze, big citrus and spice hop driven nose (not juicy!) and blends into a sweet yet drying malt driven finish. Moderate bitterness and approachable ABV means more than one is ok!

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%

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.

ABV ~ 5.7%

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?

ABV ~ 9%

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.

ABV ~ 5.2%

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.

ABV ~ 3.5%

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.

ABV ~ 5.4%

Seasonal beers

We also have our seasonal beers, which may become part of the core range if there is plenty of interest.

Kronos - Big Breakfast Stout 11 % ABV



Kronos, the king of the Titans, and father of the first generation of the Olympian gods, he overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own son Zeus (our IIPA). Kronos also fathered Hades (our Stout) and Poseidon (our pale ale)

Malt complexity and a palate weight that will carry for days. The grist has been layered with loads of Toasted and Biscuit malts to lay the foundations for the ever-luscious Crystal and signature Chocolate malt both from Simpsons in the UK. We decided to go sans any heavily roasted acidic roasted grains, with warming alcohols, mid palate biscuit and still present acidity from the 900 EBC Chocolate malt all playing their role superbly. Heavily hopped though well disguised this will be a breakfast or dessert stout for the ages.

Cyclops - Single Hop IPA - 6% ABV


Our single hop IPA was made using Australian Grown Cascade. We used 20 kg in a hop back (our Mash Tun!). It is fresh, vibrant, citrusy with a floral punch without going overboard. The nose will impress.

The beer is built with layers of biscuit and toast with a pinch of Crystal to provide the ideal base for the hero, Australian Grown Cascade hops. It’s ABV 6% and 50 ibu’s.

Artemis - German Pilsner - 5% ABV

Artemis is our interpretation of an absolute classic style, a German Pilsner. She sits well in our range and as the Goddess (of the hunt) herself will demand respect. This Pilsner is no walk in the park and shows considerable true to style hop presence and backbone. She is zesty and spicy from well-placed modern hopping (German Magnum and Australian Topaz) with a touch of malt sweetness washing through the palate.

Xenia - Belgian Golden Ale - 6.5% ABV

Xenia (pronounced ‘ksen-i-ah’) is our Belgian Golden Ale. Brewed for our first Brewsvegas and just our tenth brewday we decided it was time to go Belgian! A hazy copper in color, oozing notes of orange and lemon, firm carbonation and a quiet 6.5% demands respect.

Xenia, in Greek Mythology means "guest-friendship”. It is the ancient Greek concept of hospitality, the generosity and courtesy shown to those who are far from home and/or associates of the person bestowing guest-friendship. The rituals of hospitality created and expressed a reciprocal relationship between guest and host expressed in both material benefits (such as the giving of gifts to each party) as well as non-material ones (such as protection, shelter, favors, or certain normative rights).The Greek god Zeus is sometimes called Zeus Xenios in his role as a protector of guests.
