Mr. Wong

Hefeweizen
Brewer Notes

A traditionally styled Hefeweizen with prominent clove and banana aroma, medium body, low bitterness and tart, spritzy character from increased carbonation provides for a refreshing finish.

Beer Story

He came to Australia looking to dig up gold, but instead ended up growing it. Thanks to Mr. Wong and his Chinese compatriots, the banana industry in FNQ flourished, ensuring a prosperous future for many of the towns in these parts – give that man a beer that has a lingering banana aroma.

A mid-strength ale with a full malt flavour and hop forward bitterness with notes of pine and citrus on the aroma.

Beer Story

Hard Yards

Dark Lager
Brewer Notes

A malt driven dark lager with characteristics of roast malt, chocolate, and coffee in flavour and aroma. It finishes clean and is more sessionable than it looks.

Beer Story

In 1877, when gold was found, The Bump Track was the only road to Port Douglas and it was no leisurely Sunday drive. Unforgiving and treacherous, it brought meaning to the term ‘no pain, no gain’, and it lives on in the dark lager you’re holding.

NPD Lager

Lager
Brewer Notes

A light bodied, refreshing, clean lager with a subtle grassy, spicy hop note and crisp finish.

Beer Story

In 1910, during the construction of the Cairns-Kuranda railway, a landslide downed Tunnel 10 and the supply of ale. With brains, brawn, and beer as motivation, workers perilously rolled barrels of brew around a mountain to ensure cheer was served – cheers to that.
