Maple Bacon

Ice Cream Pancake Ale

On our planet, we have a legend about people who like pancakes … It’s called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that dancing, well, is the greatest thing there is. The beer is pretty ace too.

Dainton Brewery Mocha Chocca New England Black Rye IPA

Mocha Chocca

New England Black Rye IPA

Normally I hate “A’s” on the end of words. I prefer them at the start. Also, I like chocolate at the start of a meal, not the end. This beer is going to confuse you. Yes, I might have Thursday before which same. I mean witch.

Single Hop NEIPA

Professor of beerology, expert on the occult, and how does one say it … obtainer of rare beers … Yep, this guy does it all for fortune and beer. Using experimental Hort 4334 hops you’ll get tropical, stonefruit and citrus notes. Just don’t look at the can when you open it. Don’t look!

Apricot & Peach Kettle Sour

When you’ve run out of ideas and coffee, bad things can occur. Let’s be honest, no coffee is worse than no beer … Anyway, kettle-soured with peach and apricot. Yum. Not as yum as a McCoffee though.

Choc Peanut Butter Stout

Peanuts are rad, aliens told us so. Better than that, we’re going to show you so. Just watch your allergies, because we aim to please. This beer ain’t crap!

Kinky Cola

Black Cherry Cola Sour

Well Cam’s not the world’s most mystical guy, but when he made this beer we nearly lost our minds – C-O-L-A COLA, CH-CH-CHERRY COLA! So we we’re all pretty cluey blokes, though this beer flips our wigs as it tastes like a Coke – C-O-L-A COLA, CH-CH-CHERRY COLA!

Dainton Brewery Cherrywood Smoked Rye Baltic Porter


Smoked Rye Baltic Porter

A dark porter with a difference. A complex beer that tastes like a chocolate cigar, dipped in port and ignited by a dragon’s flame.

Cookies & Cream

Milkshake IPA

How unhealthy was the cookie monster? Seriously … I eat one cookie and I’m feeling like I need a refreshing ale to cleanse myself. Maybe CM needed a wheatgrass shot or something? I do. And a cookie. Mmmmm cookies.

Dainton Shellraiser Oyster Kilpatrick Stout


Oyster Kilpatrick Stout

Another year and another ‘collab’ with these crazy folks. Also some NSW farmer helped source the actual 110 dozen oysters in this brew. Note – there is no bacon, though it does taste a bit like bacon … ‘Facon’ I call it. I don’t. You do.

Brewed in collaboration with Bright Tank Brewing, Van Diemen Brewing and Rocky Ridge Brewing Co.

9.5%ABV / 35IBU

Choctail Espresso

Moccha Stout

Choctail reminds us of “DuckTales”, although the characters are “Danny, Cammy and Tayley”, with “Kev” being Uncle Scrooge. Also, we wear pants, sometimes. And Kev has silver coins, not gold ones. Segway – this beer has cold brewed coffee from Commonfolk Coffee Roasters in Mornington and organic cacao nibs. Delish.

Pickle Dan

Reuben Rye Ale

There are really real, surreal and unreal similarities between Rick and Dan. Perhaps if they collabed on a science project they’d make this beer … Or start an inter-dimensional war? Maybe both. Brewed with real pickles from Dillicious.

Dainton Brewery Supertrooper Imperial NEIPA


Imperial NEIPA

A long time ago, in a beer hall not that far away… There was a bearded dude, wearing a flanno, sipping on Some blue milk. Pretty sure he starred in that movie Trainspotting. Anyway, he now fights robots and clones and has a cool light sword. Enjoy.

5.8%ABV / 27IBU

Dainton Brewery Half-Blood Blood Orange Session NERIPA


Blood Orange Session NERIPA

‘Half-blood’ conjures images of Werewolves or Vampires or Wolfpires … Maybe they drink this beer instead of human blood? Maybe this juicy brew will grant magical powers. Maybe Robert Patterson will jump from a Jeep Wrangler and stare at you weirdly? I hope not. Drink the beer.

6%ABV / 55IBU

Flat White

Iced Coffee NEIPA

What the f#$k is an almond magic? What has this world come to? Give me an old fashioned (circa 1998) flat white and I’m good. And why coffee in beer? Well, it’s all about the things you love. Oh yeah, it’s a white stout. Go figure.
