We are a family owned and run brewing company, founded by two brothers out of the 160 year old East Sydney Hotel in Woolloomoolloo, Sydney Australia. 


The founders, Sam and Pete, were driven by a thirst to blend the best, natural ingredients to create the finest Aussie beer, produced right here in our beautiful harbour city.

Pours a nice clear golden with soft aromas of caramel/biscuit malts.

The flavours are clean with the caramel malts being showcased with light bitterness and slight tropical flavours.

This is an easy drinking, malt forward Pale Ale that would be welcome in my fridge any day
