Dry Hopped Lager

Our Master Brewers have poured the company’s 139 year heritage into crafting a new lager, using its founder’s roots travelling the world in the Merchant Navy as inspiration. Charlie Wells Dry Hopped Lager is brewed with natural mineral water from a well sunk by Charles Wells himself in the early 1900s and the brewers combine several varieties of hops from around the world to create the beer’s slight bitterness, hoppy aroma and subtle maltiness with a deliciously smooth finish.

Brewed in true continental style, we use 100% malt in the mash and add in Target hops followed by a late addition of Styrian Goldings to add that really noble hop aroma. We ferment the beer cool with lager yeast for seven days, and what makes this beer really special is a two week cold conditioning stage with Australian Galaxy and Ella hops which brings out all that depth of flavour and dry hop character.

Your journey begins in 1800s England where IPAs were pale in colour and brewed with Goldings – the original IPA hop.

Firebird

Firebird IPA has been masterly brewed to give you the sensation of cruising along Route 66 with rock blazing on the stereo.

Our REDROCK brewmaster personally hand selected two Belgian malts, Crystal and Chateau Arome, to add distinctive colour and depth of flavour in creating this highly refreshing, easily quaffable IPA. A specially designed Hop Gun then circulates the dry hops, extracting the maximum aromatics for a unique hoppy flavour and perfect bitterness. Cold filtered for a consistently clean and clear finish.

Rusty Trigger

At last, an easy to drink, craft lager for true fans of great flavoured brewing. Inspired by Willie Nelson and more specifically his favourite, beat up Martin N-20 guitar (which he nicknamed “Trigger”), Rusty Trigger Lager delivers a taste as unique as Willie himself.

 Much in the same way that Willie blended country music, folk and jazz into his songs, we’ve created a truly distinguished blend through our meticulous mixing of late Oregon hops with Crystal and Munich malts to create top flavour notes. Cold filtered for fuller flavour it’s truly, the stuff that legends are made of.

Storm Rider

Introducing the Pilsner that’s set to become as famous as the 1971 rock classic, “Riders On the Storm” by the immortal Jim Morrison of The Doors fame.

 In the same way that a Fender Rhodes electric piano created the sound of rain in the original song, we’ve included a unique blend of imported malts to create a full, rich taste complemented by the generous addition of four different hops (Southern Promise, Columbus, Hallertau and Saaz) from around the world which infuses the overall taste with lush complexity.

Storm Rider Pils takes its cues from the great Czech Pilsners and is specially cold filtered to be easy drinking – the calm after the storm. This is REDROCK’s version of the Monday beer aptly named after the legendary New York overnight DJ, Allison Steele, who always played “Riders on the Storm” on Monday nights, if it rained.

Brewers Lager

Inspired by the admired reputation of early twentieth century all-malt beers, the Brewers Lager remains Jack Black Beer’s flagship lager. This pre-prohibition style lager boasts a great balance between the sweetness of malt and the tart bitterness of hops. Brewed with Pale Malt, Southern Promise and Saaz hops, this session beer delivers crisp citrus notes with a full body that displays its prowess on the palate. Its low alcohol percentage and refreshing flavour allows the drinker to enjoy the larger over a long period of time without the risk of overwhelming the palate.

Thunder Bird

Upfront juicy hops define this edgy beer, generous on flavour with an easy drinking citrus freshness on the finish. The Southern Ground Hornbill is the inspiration for this brew which is made reference to by many African cultures and thought to be the symbol behind the rainy season and thus taboo to be hunted.
