Docks Beers has teamed up with East Coast Cruising to brew a brand new beer, especially for CleeW Fest 2023!
Seafrontin’ is a light and easy-drinking Extra Pale Ale with a hint of Orange backed by some of our favourite zesty American hops (Endeavour, Cascade, Citra, Amarillo).
This beer is perfect for those who love to explore and try new things. We can’t guarantee the weather, but this is the perfect beer to enjoy during a festival, especially when it’s hot outside.
Seafrontin’ is available to purchase in 440ml cans right now! We will also be pouring this from keg in the Taproom from today, and we will also be at CleeW Fest, where this beer will be available on tap and in keg over the Festival weekend.
Crammed full of the best Kiwi hops, say Kia Ora to Whakahoa. Our brand NEW NZ Pilsner showcases the best flavours of hops from the Motueka Valley, expect a clean crisp bitterness with notes of Passionfruit, Melon, Grapefruit and Gooseberry.
We love New Zealand hops & pilsners so we began with a malt bill of Lager, Pale, Dextrin and a touch of Acidulated. Then hops Riwaka, Motueka and Nelson. We discovered that the Hop Revolution collaborated with Freestyle Hops (2 of the more exciting hop growers in NZ) to create the Revolution Blend which features the hops we had selected plus Pacific Sunrise hop. So we have accommodated this new hop blend. We’ve been blown away by the results. We hope you are too.
Whakahoa is pouring in the Taproom now!
June 2023 is Pride Month, and this year we are celebrating Sylvia Rivera (She/Her) who helped lead the charge on the night of the Stonewall riots in New York City, which is considered the beginning of the LGBTQ+ rights movement.
Sylvia Rivera is a Light Lager with Lemon. Brewed with Pale lager malt and torrified rice lashings of lemon zest. This is a super crisp and easy-going beer clocking in at a modest 4.7 %.
Sylvia Rivera is available right now on tap in the Church. Pint of Sylvia please!
Our latest beer, ‘Character Building’ 5.9% Modern IPA is Lewis’s first brew as our new Head Brewer.
Built from the ground up on a foundation of Extra Pale and flaked grains for a soft and pillowy body allowing the hops to really shine. Expect notes of drippy mango nectar, sweet pastilles and overripe stone fruit with a hint of citrus and a punctual bitterness for ultimate drinkability.
This beer has received high praise from those that have tried it, we love it, and hope you will too. Character Building is flowing from Keg as we speak, so give it a try!
A contradiction in itself. This beer started life as a simple Belgian Tripel, Pale gold, dry, with a hint of sweetness.
Four months in a red wine barrel and a massive amount of cherries later, it has retained its dry finish but it now pours a deep crimson with a huge hit of jammy fruitiness and a Sour Cherry tartness. An impeccably balanced explosion of flavour. Savour it.
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb.
Cherry Bomb will be released next week, so keep an eye on our socials for more news soon…
