THIS BEER IS

The first of our foray into lager beer, Hop Rocker is a high impact, hoppy behemoth made with 100% malt. Since 2007 we have been obsessive about quality, using only the best ingredients to ensure the flavour and craftsmanship of the beer in your glass. Hop Rocker is testament to that. The malt base gives this beer a sweet, balanced complexity while the combination of New Zealand and German hops merges new world tropical juiciness with old world peppery spice.

BREWER'S TIP

Brewers Tip Icon

After the fermentation has finished, chill the beer to below 5°C (if you can), wait 10 days and then rack the beer off the yeast into another bucket. The yeast left in suspension will carry on working its magic to create really clean, crisp lager flavours.
