The latest of our seasonal releases, the West Coast Pale Ale has dropped just in time for the summer holiday period.
Simultaneously refreshing and more-ish, this highly sessionable American west coast style pale is a deep amber colour featuring tropical stone fruit aromas and a squeaky-clean finish that begs you to take another sip.
Generously hopped with simcoe, galaxy and Amarillo hop varieties, it is supported by toasty amber and crystal malts.
Get in quick and grab some bottles or settle in for a pint or two at the Beer Hall. You can also find it in the following venues and stores:
Our story began in 2007 when we built our brewery in Moorabbin featuring tanks shipped over from a defunct brewery in Times Square, NYC. 10 years later, over 1,000 craft brews, and many award-winning pints, we are proud to say we are still Melbourne Owned and Melbourne Made.
To celebrate this milestone, we have decided to create something truly special.
The GUVNOR II is our second instalment of one of our most popular seasonal releases. We have carefully crafted a four-part GUVNOR series, each individually brewed and aged to form four distinct parts of a whole. Each part will be released over the coming months with “The GUVNOR II, Part I: French Oak” set for release on 2nd December 2017.
To celebrate, it will be available for sale at the 2 Brothers Beer Hall as well as selected stockists across Melbourne. As collector’s items, we don’t expect they will last long, so make sure you purchase them as soon as you can after release!
This week we are stoked to stock Kung Foo and Pay Day at even more BWS stores. Added to the list are:

We released it two weeks ago and this golden beauty is almost gone. Tri Hopped by name and Try Hopped by method. Amarillo, Simcoe, Ella. If you manage to snag a bottle, store it cold and drink it promptly.
Kung Foo is a “Rice Lager” which has prompted some of you to ask, “does this mean it’s Gluten Free?” Here’s a longish answer to a simple question.
Kung Foo is made from rice and malted barley starch sources and finished with a combination of American and European aroma hops to give the beer depth not typically seen in many other Australian light/dry beers.
Since beer made from malted barley is not typically Gluten Free we decided to get a batch tested.
The particular batch we had tested came back as having “no detectible gluten”, which means there was less than 5ppm of gluten. To compare, a typical 100% malt beer is around 95 ppm gluten.
But the Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) restricts claims around gluten contents as follows:
Gluten Free – The food must not contain:
(a) detectable gluten; or
(b) oats or oat products; or
(c) cereals containing gluten that have been malted, or products of such cereals.
Low Gluten – The food contains no more than 20 mg gluten/100 g of the food.
Although no gluten was detected in the test, since Kung Foo contains malted barley it does not meet FSANZ criteria for a Gluten Free product and cannot be described as gluten free.
However, at less than 5ppm (or 0.5mg/100g of beer), Kung Foo easily meets the criteria for Low Gluten products.
