Better a beer named after you than a passage!
sir thomas porter
our salute to former nsw governor sir thomas macdougall brisbane – the man with the biggest passage (of water) on the central coast named after him. while a man of faith, we believe our porter brewed in the traditional english style would have surely tempted. a dark, almost opaque ale with ruby highlights, this ale (like all our core beers), has been brewed using all australian grains – 5 varieties in total! without a doubt this ale is centred around the roasted malt flavours with a perfect dose of chocolate and coffee flavours on offer too. caramalt and crystal have been used to counter the dryness of the roasted grain, leaving a well balanced dark beer that has been subtly hopped – don’t expect any hop flavours here!

amazing with oysters! roasted maltiness works well with tomato-based pasta and pizzas, grilled meat and onions. did we mention oysters?
