CORE RANGE SELECTION
BILLY CART RYE PALE ALE ● 3.4% ABV ● Draft / 375ml CANS
Rye Pale Ale
We all know what a billy cart is. 4 wheels nailed to a plank and a box in its simplest form and a source of fun and enjoyment for kids all over the world. At its most complex though a billy cart becomes a “gravity racer” and they are built to the same precision and aerodynamic principles as the pinnacle of motorsport- Formula One. Our Billy Cart is brewed with the same philosophy. The same attention to detail and flavour focus that we apply to our bigger beers is also true for our smallest beer. This results in a sleek and well flavoured Rye Pale Ale with a bright copper colour and aromas from both Northern and Southern Hemisphere hops. The rye provides a light spicy character in the background to a balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Sure to provide fun and enjoyment to the gravity racer in us all.
MAGIC MILE XPA ● 5.5% ABV ● Draft / 375ml CANS
Extra Pale Ale
Whilst our brewery is in Yeerongpilly we are in fact only a block away from Brisbane Icon The Magic Mile. For many Brisbane locals The Magic Mile has played some part in a car purchase of their own or a friend or family member. So many cars, so many options, so much colour! How could we not pay tribute to this famous stretch? And how could we not do it with a beer that shows such hop colour and variety as our XPA. Magic Mile XPA has a very assertive hop profile from both new & established US hop varieties. Tropical and citrus fruits dominate the nose with a strong piney bitterness over a balancing biscuity malt back bone. The finish is medium to dry resulting in a very quenching and moreish beer for its 5.5% abv.
G-FORCE IPA ● 6.5% ABV ● Draft / 375ml CANS
East Coast American IPA
Well we couldn’t be a hop forward brewery without an IPA could we? For us at Slipstream the big debate though was where on the flavour spectrum our first IPA should sit. Should we do a classic American IPA? An India Black Ale? An Imperial IPA? Ultimately what we kept coming back to was an IPA that we wanted to drink again and again. Something with a bright and fruity hop nose, a firm bitterness and extreme drinkability. G-force IPA is brewed using completely late kettle additions of new hop varieties to create a beer with a hop focus on bright flavours and big oil content to exceed the bitterness. Inspired in part by the Vermont variants of IPA the hop bill reads like a who’s who of desirable modern hops. Like all Slipstream beers G-force is completely unfiltered and has a natural haze that will go bright in the keg or can.
YERONGPILS ● 4.5% ABV ● Draft / 375ml CANS
German Style Pilsner
As a modern hop forward brewery much of our focus is naturally on the exciting fruit driven hop varieties from the New World. However, we do remember that assertively hopped beers have been around for a lot longer than the modern craft beer revolution. With this in mind we created Yerongpils, our German inspired Pilsner. Named after our local area, Yerongpils is brewed with German malts and a combination of German Noble Hops and their Southern Hemisphere descendants. Spicy and floral hop aromas blend with fresh bready malt notes to temper a firm but not overpowering bitterness. Yerongpils has a dry finish that further strengthens its drinkability.
PELETON ● 4.9% ABV ● Draft
Slipstream Peleton is a Saison style farmhouse ale brewed with quenching the thirst of Brisbane’s workers in mind. Like all Slipstream beers Peleton is very much a hop forward beer, however in the tradition of the style the hops are continental varieties (Hallertau and Styrians) rather than the Australian, US and NZ hops used in most of our beers. In Fact, Peleton has the same hop loading as our Magic Mile XPA. Brewed using a newly available yeast Peleton has an aroma of ripe pears complimented by spice notes reminiscent of cinnamon, anise and allspice with a touch of lemon. In the mouth Peleton has an assertive hop bitterness over a bready malt background the leads to a crackingly dry finish. An ideal match for white mould cheeses or Thai style food.
ZOOBOMB ● 4.7% ABV ● Draft
We’ve always wanted to do a stout, and for no real reason other than we wanted to we decided that now was the right time to release Zoobomb. This is an American style stout full of hoppy goodness, but make no mistake it is a stout not an India Black Ale. Brewed with more than generous amounts of roast barley, black and chocolate malts Zoobomb is a very dark beer, as one might expect from a stout. The nose is a balance of citric hops held firmly in check by a roasted choc and coffee malt profile. In the mouth toffee, caramel and chocolate malt profiles are checked by a firm bitterness that is a balance of both hops and roasted malts. A style not too often seen in Australia and a beer we are rather fond of to say the least. … and if you are curious about the name, google it.
SLIPSTREAM/WELCOME HOTEL/FITZ&POTTS XXXPL ● 5.3% ABV ● Draft
Xtra Pale Lager
Collaboration with Calibre Craft Beer, Fitz & Potts and The Welcome Hotel. Assertively hopped with US tropical and citrus varieties. Fermented with Lager yeast to change up our XPA, making it an XPL
DAYTONA ● 4.5% ABV ● Draft
American Wheat Ale
Arriving just in time for Brisbane spring is slipstreams first wheat beer. Brewed with a blend of raw and malted wheat Daytona is a real quencher. The nose is hop dominated with big lime and pineapple aromas thanks to very generous new world hop additions. Initially soft in the mouth with a restrained bitterness and a dry finish.
ROAD RUNNER RED ● 5.1% ABV ● Draft
American Red Ale
Deep red in colour this Ale starts off with a floral, slightly citrus hop nose, hop flavour soon fades into the malty backbone of this red ale.
G-FORCE IPA 7G ● 7.1% ABV ● Draft
American West Coast IPA
One IPA is never enough, and there is no such thing as too many hop varieties. Slipstream 7G IPA is 7% abv and contains 7 hop varieties. … Excessive? Maybe… Fun? Oh Yeah! A fuller malt profile to its stablemate G-force, allows us to ply even more hops into this beer to result in 50% more theoretical bitterness. The aroma is the strong pine and grapefruit that one would expect from a beer such as this. The bitterness is assertive but not excessive and combines with a moderately dry finish to check the malt in its place…. This is a hop driven beer after all!
BUGGY BROWN ● 4.5% ABV ● Draft
American Style Brown Ale
Have you ever felt that enough wasn’t yet enough? … Maybe it’s just us but we loved US brown ales but felt we wanted just a little more from them. …. It bugged us so we had to do something about it. Enter Buggy Brown. So technically this beer is a bit out of style for its type but that’s exactly what we were craving – a little more malt, a little more roast and a little more hops. Buggy Brown has a prominent American hop aroma of pine and citrus with a backdrop of rich malt. In the mouth deep roast chocolate flavours play alongside a strong bitterness to balance out deep caramel malt flavours. An absolute joy to pair alongside some BBQ’d food.
