What's on tap:

  • American Pale Ale - All Cascade hops from kettle to fermenter.
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Pale Ale, Vienna, Carapils, Light Crystal
    Hops:Cascade
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:5.2%
    Style:American Pale Ale
    The first beer we ever made, American Pale Ale gives a fantastic idea of what we stand for at Batch: fresh, independent, unpasturised, unfiltered, natural, balanced. A combination of Vienna and caramel pilsner malt round off a malt bill that leans towards the drier end of the style, softening its body a touch, before big hits of Cascade hops from the whirlpool and fermentor give a complex burst of fresh cut grass, citrus stone fruit and a touch of pine. This is the beer that shows the quality and nuance you can expect from Batch Brewing Co, and it all started with Chris and Andrew in their backyards. We brew for you.
  • Azacca IPA - Fruity & Floral Azacca IPA
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Gladfield Pilsner, Flaked Oats, Gladfield Gladiator, Gladfield Sour
    Hops:Azacca, Citra, Ekuanot
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:6.4%
    Style:IPA
    An IPA showcasing Azacca hops. Paired with Citra & Ekuanot for a hop combination offering a bright, fruity aroma with a hint of floral and earthy noble hop flavours. A clean pilsner malt body with a hint of sweetness and a soft, creamy mouthfeel create an ectremley drinkable IPA. This beer's balanced finish is going to leave you longing for the next sip.
  • Elsie the Milk Stout - Nitrogenated stout with lactose
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:2-Row, Maris Otter, Roast, Light Crystal, Flaked Barley, Flaked Oats, Vienna, Chocolate, Lactose
    Hops:Willamette & Fuggles
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:4.4%
    Style:Milk Stout
    Elsie is made by combining unfermentable lactose with a malt bill so complex the brewers refer to it as their 'kitchen sink beer'. The result is a beer that's sweet and smooth and dark and roasty, with gentle touches of chocolate, coffee and cream. Served on nitrogen at the bar, but conditioned for the bottle, allowing yeast to naturally carbonate the stout for an incredibly thick and smooth texture. She's so tasty, you'll believe cows really can jump over the moon!
  • Just Beer - extended lagering and gently hopped
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Voyager Hindmarsh, Malted Wheat, Cara Malt
    Hops:Summer & VIC Secret
    Yeast:Lager
    ABV:4.5%
    Style:Lager
    A lot of raw materials are used to brew the beer you drink, from water and electricity, to hops and cereal grains. That's why it's part of our goal to minimize the impact we have on our community, our land and our air. One small step we've taken is by directly supporting the farmers who justly care for our earth through their sustainable growing and harvesting of barley. Farm malted Hindmarsh barley from Voyager Craft Malt in the Riverina is the simple base for this simple beer. And the extended lagering and gentle hopping deliver a clean flavour that allows the beer to speak for itself. With every sip that you take, you can rest easy knowing that this beer is truly just - just for farmers, just for our community, Just Beer.
  • Mosaic Amber Ale - SMALL BATCH'S FIRST GRADUATE
    Tasting Notes:
    ABV:6.0%

    A bold, full flavoured ale with a toasted, toffee malt character and hint's of light honey, paired perfectly with the punchy hop aroma of sticky, green pineapple, medium body and a firm bitterness with a long, chewy malt finish.

    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Gladfield American Ale, wheat malt, unmalted wheat
    Hops:gentle bittering
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:4.5%
    Style:Passion and Dragon Fruit Sour
    Pash the Magic Dragon lived by the brewery, and frollicked in a golden grist of flaked wheat and barley. His friend, Jackle Paper, loved that rascal Pash, and brought him malt to help him sour that crisp and tasty mash. Oh! Together they would sour wort with some lactic acid, Jackle kept a lookout to make sure it wasn't flaccid. But one wanted a sweet and yellow from some passionfruit, the other wanted pink and tart from some dragon fruit. Oh! The dragon and his friend, they bickered all night long, til they finally realised that neither one was wrong! They put each fruit into the beer and let it settle out, the friendship saved! The beer was great! Was there any doubt?!

    Malt:Gladfield American, Gladfield Wheat, Flaked Wheat, Sour Malt

    Yeast:Americal Ale
    ABV:4.6%
    Style:Cherry & Vanilla American Wheat

  • West Coast IPA - West Coast Hops
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Pale Ale, Carapils, Wheat
    Hops:Mosaic, Centennial, Chinook
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:5.8%
    Style:American IPA
    Of all the IPAs Batch has ever made, only one became a permanent fixture of the brewery - a testament to quality if ever there was one! Bright in colour, dry on the palate and thirst quenching in the extreme, wheat and pale malts compliment each other with nuance. Hops are added all through the boil and fermentor - Centennial and Chinook provide a generous base of juicy, chewy fruits, before Mosaic hops shine through with big hints of pineapple and tropical stone fruit. Balanced to precision, the bitterness in this IPA never overwhelms the palate. At the lower end of the IPA’s ABV spectrum, this beer is a faithful example of the West Coast style. High quality, precise, nuanced and fresh, this beer all of the qualities on which Batch prides itself.

In Bottles / Growlers (but not on tap):

  • Buckley St. Brown Ale - Brown Ale
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Voyager Veloria, Gladfield Vienna, Dark Crystal, Light Crystal, Dark Chocolate, Flaked Oats
    Hops:East Kent Golding and Amarillo
    Yeast:Americal Ale
    ABV:4.2%
    Style:Brown Ale
    Buckley Street Brown Ale (a simple nod to our local area) is a beer that is fermented a touch lower than our other beers to give it a clean ester profile that lets the balanced malt and hops do the talking. The Chocolate, Voyager Veloria and mix of crystal malts give a pleasant roast character with a bit of body and sweetness. This is a beer for people who appreciate the subtle characteristics of a well made, very drinkable beer.

    Malt:Gladfield American Ale, Vienna Malt, Caramel Pilsner, Bohemian Pilsner
    Hops:Citra & Galaxy
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:8.9%
    Style:XXPA
    Trippy hippy is back from his sole searching camping trip where he saw a Double Rainbow! This bodacious yet colourful beer is a combo of clean American pale malt and a crips addition of Bohemian Pilsner, creating a classic dry pale ale base. But it still has just the right amount of soft malty goodness to balance out the luscious garden of tropical delights, created by adding copius amounts of Galaxy and Citra hops, providing a huge burst of passionfruit aroma, a tangy taste of grapefruit, and some sweet melon. Takes you back to that time during that camping trip where you told everyone you saw a double rainbow and swore you could also taste colours (must have been a bad prawn).

    We just Batch lords, looking for perfect partners. Pineapple that know how to ride. Mosaic hops, break some off. Gotta be compatible, takes you to your limits. Flavour country, smooth not rough. This is a taste train you won't want to get off. If you're thirsty, lets do it. Gulp it, down slowly. Tastebud baiting, pucker up on it. If you're thirsty, let's do it. Try it, we ain't phony.

    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Schooner, Voyager Munich, Cara Munich
    Hops:Nugget
    Yeast:American Ale Yeast
    ABV:9.5%
    Style:Yankee Strong Ale
    What's up dude, you good? You got what you need? Don that smoking jacket, and get comfortable in your favourite chair because you're going to be here awhile. Good, now listen up because we're going to let you in on a little somethin' right now. This Yankee Strong Ale is all about rich caramel malt characters with a toffee sweetness, with a nice warming finish from the big ABV. Yeah, I bet you just sunk further in your chair didn't you? But those nugget hops added in provide just that bit of herbal and mild bitterness to balance out that big malt sweetness and ABV. You feeling this now? I bet you are.
  • Tank 6 Imperial Stout - Russian Imperial Stout
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Gladfield American Ale, Golden Promise, Roasted Malts, Chocolate Malts, Crystal Malt
    Hops:East Kent Goldings, Warrior, Chinook, Summer
    Yeast:American Ale
    ABV:9.2%
    Style:Russian Imperial Stout
    The main ingredient of any beer this big and complex is time. Over the six months spent in Tank 6, this stout's namesake, the yeast continued its work allowing the copious amounts of roasted malt to mellow into luscious and rich flavours of coffee and chocolate. Farm malted in NZ, Gladfield ale malt provides the bulk of the fermentables and alcohol warmth which is gently swept away by the sweet characteristics, ranging from honey to plum, derived from four different crystal malts. Gentle bittering from the hop East Kent Goldings delivers its balance and approachability, allowing you to sink deeply into your favouite arm chair (at Batch, or at home) and appreciate the finer things in life. Serve cool, but not cold, and pour with some vigour into your favourite wide mouthed, stemmed glass to appreciate the various flavours that present as the beer warms in your hand.
  • Voodoo Gold - Trippy Hippie's Voodoo Gold
    Tasting Notes:
    Malt:Voyager Schooner, Voyager Vienna, Voyager Voodoo, Gladiator, Gladfield Wheat, Dark Crystal
    Hops:El Dorado, Mosaic
    Yeast:American Ale Yeast
    ABV:5.6%
    Style:Hoppy Amber Ale
    Aahhhh dude, so I was like traveling throughout the world and I had this trippy experience somewhere. Man, I really can't remember where it was but there was like all this crazy voodoo going on with like, weird chanting man...It was nuts. And they were like feeding me raisins, caramel, tropical fruits at the same time, and then some dank resinous stuff (and I mean woah!). To top it all off, they were rubbing me with gold man, and that's when it got weird. I don't actually know what they achieved, but after that whole experience, I was like "Dude! If you like combine all those flavours together, a that's a pretty killer beer!" So I came back in to the brewery and started messing around with some malty and fruit notes, and came up with this gold number. But don't worry, I left the actual voodoo hoo haa out!
