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 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 label 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 lots of great appeal”.
