Our Beer

It’s been a hard job taste testing & researching these beer styles, but someone’s got to do it. We will be updating our beers list as they released, so check back here regularly!

Nun Launcher

Pale Ale

4.2% ABV 25 IBU

Our everyday Pale Ale a light thirst-quenching pale with a firm bitterness and aromas of citrus & tropical fruits. A whole lotta yum!

Four of our founders all went to school together in Dubbo & they remember well when St.Brigid’s Church was rebuilt with its distinctive spire.

The locals fondly refer to this as "The Nun Launcher". Cheeky devils!

Small Arms

German Style Lager

4.4%ABV 30 IBU

There is a lot of history in this one. Did you know that there was a small arms factory in Dubbo?

It was one of a chain of them across central west NSW that fed into the larger arms facility in Lithgow, all building parts for the Vickers Machine Gun.

You may know that story, but did you know that apparently the facility was infiltrated by German spies?

Is it true?

We like to think it is (hence it's a German Style Lager), but we also like to think of the factory staffed by many women, hence our nod to Rosie the Riveter in the design.

In the words of our brewer "it's turning out to be better than we could have hoped for" "Lovely light hop aromas, great balance, great everyday lager with great appeal."

Nosey Bob

Red Ale

5.2% ABV 35 IBU

Robert "Nosey Bob" Howard had the rather gruesome job of being the NSW State Hangman & presided over seven executions at the Old Dubbo Gaol in the late 1800's.

His nickname 'Nosey Bob' was the result of him losing his nose whilst working as a handsome & successful Cab driver in 1870's Sydney. Unfortunately, one of his horses was suffering from a bit of road rage & kicked him in the face, completely obliterating his nose! He was unemployed for a long time & out of desperation took on the state's first salaried hangman.

You can read more about the gruesome story of Nosey Bob at the Old Dubbo Gaol word has it he wasn't very good, however he did like a beer! Unfortunately for him, it is said that whenever he ventured out to his local, the publicans would smash any glass that he had drunk from "It would do my business no good if I gave men glasses into which Nosey Bob had dipped his nose-if he had one,” Poor old Nosey Bob.

We encourage you to toast his memory whenever you come in and enjoy a schooner of our Red Ale. It's a good one! This is what Lachie (our brewer) had to say -"OMG! American hop aromas to die for, great malt body"

In fact it's so good, that those of you looking for our IPA releases will love this one whilst we are brewing our IPA ready for a late July release.
