Brewed in celebration of Tracy Banner’s 35 years in the Brewing Industry, this Marzen Rauchbier displays smokey characteristics from the use of Bamberg Beechwood Smoked Malt and exhibits sweet toasted notes.
Our own custom blend of seven hops gives a fresh, spicy hop aroma and a smooth flavour with subtle overtones of citrus and summer fruits. The brewing process enhances the mild hop profile, and complements the soft malt character while leaving a dry finish on the palate. It’s designed to quench your thirst and is light enough to get you back on your bike.
Brewed beside the Thames since 1845, award-winning London Pride is best known for its exceptional balance of malt and hops, giving rise to well-rounded flavour. It is brewed with Pale malt, plus Target, Challenger and Northdown hops. Cask: 4.1%, Bottle, Can and Keg: 4.7%
We’ve got the perfect drink-beside-the-fire beer. Creamy, with vanilla-infused dark chocolate and burnt toffee. Jet black, this full-bodied stout is balanced with just a hint of bitterness.
A delicate session-strength beer with a hints of orange blossom, coconut, vanilla and a refreshingly dry finish.
A quaffable, cloudy white ale that is perfect for those afternoon sessions after a hard day’s work or play. Pours a cloudy pale straw colour with a dense mousse-like white head. A perfumy coconut and vanilla note on the nose, with a little citrus and spice, and bready grains from the wheat. The mouthfeel is full for such a pale beer, but still very light and elegant. The beer finishes with a cleansing acidity, a faint spicy note and only the mildest touch of citrus from the virtually non-existent hops.
No beer style has grown with the same momentum over the past two years as the New England IPA. Typically, the style is brewed with low bitterness, high haze and is packed full of fruit characters care of both yeast and hop selections.
For our third birthday we have decided to brew a variation of the style. Using the same basic blueprint but removing the haze. The idea behind the concept was to experiment and find out if we could impart the same luxurious juicy characteristics that we love about the style but have it crystal clear, crisp and summery.
A refreshing Summer style naturally conditioned ale that delivers tropical fruit notes with a distinct dry hop character and mild bitterness. The hops have been added at different stages of brewing for both bitterness and aroma, with the addition of dry hopping for enhancement of flavour and character. One of the things that give our ales that unique Coopers flavour and cloudy appearance is a process called natural conditioning. To achieve this, we add a small amount of live yeast to our beer just before canning.
This causes a secondary fermentation in the can, which carbonates the beer and eliminates the need for any preservatives or additives.
Hopfen Stein Bier – a hot rocks beer flash boiled over super heated volcanic rocks from Wellington’s South Coast for a rich red toffee character and hopped to distraction with whole cone Nelson Sauvin hops.
It couldn’t be simpler.
Pilsner malt, Saaz hops and Czech yeast. That’s it.
Sometimes simple is exactly what you want.
Why bother dressing it up?
It is what it is.

You can only drink so many beers in a lifetime, so you better make each one count. That’s where we can help. Because at Epic we’re obessed with creating big hop-fuelled beers. This takes a shed-load of skill. It also takes a shed-load of hops. In fact there are 23 crammed into this bottle. Many brewers would call that ‘insane’. We call it flavour.
Hailing from a land that has adopted the feijoa as a native, South Cider supplements traditional Pink Lady and Braeburn apples with the bounty of a thousand roadside stalls. Clear amber in colour it comes on crisp and fresh while revelling in the taste and texture of pure feijoa.
Tulameen is a kettle sour with a twist: following the souring process using lactobacillus, this wheat beer is then fermented with a German wheat beer yeast strain to add notes of banana and bubble gum, before a huge amount of raspberries is added in maturation. The result is a bracingly tart and refreshing beer with a pinkish hue, absolutely brimming with the flavour of ripe raspberries.
