CORE RANGE SELECTION
MALENY LAGER ● 4.6% ABV ● Draft
Maleny is known for its beautiful rolling hills, clean crisp air and soft water. So it seemed fitting to name our Lager after the picturesque place we call home. This is a real lager, made with the best ingredients and a lot of patience. It’s clean and crisp, but with a mouthfeel that you don’t get from a filtered beer. Instead of filtering, we honour the traditional German technique of ‘lagering’. This is where we store the beer cold (0-2 degrees) inside one of our fermenters for 2 months. The resulting beer is a light golden colour, with a gentle spiciness from the Czech Saaz hops and a balanced sweetness from the Pilsner malt. There is nowhere to hide flaws in a lager and we are proud to take no shortcuts in making this traditional lager that showcases the craft behind good beer.
BLONDE ALE ● 4.9% ABV ● Draft
American Blonde Ale
The Blonde Ale is made to be enjoyed by anyone, anytime. It showcases the 4 natural ingredients for what they are. It is hopped only with German Hallertau hops and has a malt bill almost entirely made up of pilsner malt. But this isn't your typical Blonde. A slightly higher fermentation temperature creates a yeast presence which adds another element to this style. And then an extended period of cold conditioning ensures a clean, crisp ale without any form of filtration.
NEW ZEALAND PALE ALE ● 4.5% ABV ● 375ml Cans/Draft
Brouhaha’s New Zealand Pale Ale packs all NZ hops and malts. It pours a lovely golden orange colour, with a tightly packed white head. The healthy doses of NZ hops at regular intervals throughout the brewing process give it a very juicy, tropical, citrus nose. A light, smooth palate, aided by the addition of wheat malts ensures the hops are well balanced. A moderate bitterness and juicy hop portfolio make this an extremely sessional pale ale.
DRY HOPPED SAISON ● 5.7% ABV ● Draft
Like any great Saison, this beer is all about showcasing the yeast strain. Apples, pears, orange peel and a hint of funk are blended beautifully into the nose of this ale. It pours a lovely, hazy golden colour with a fine, white head. This beer ferments nice and low, but the remaining yeast in suspension and wheat and munich malts give this beer a very rounded body and texture. A light drop-hop of Motueka adds a crisp, citrus spice with complements the yeast strain perfectly.
RASPBERRY SAISON ● 5.9% ABV ● 375ml Cans/Draft
French Saison with Fruit
Batch- splitting is something we love to do at Brouhaha. It allows us to constantly experiment and add variety to our lineup. The raspberry saison starts out in the same tank as the dry- hopped version however, at the end of primary fermentation we split it off into a seperate tank and add 100kg of Australian raspberries. The active yeast ferments out the sugar in the raspberries, which increases the alcohol slightly. It is a cloudy pink colour, which comes from the juice of the raspberries. The tartness of the raspberries balances beautifully with the apple and pear flavours of the yeast. This beer takes me fondly back to my childhood picking raspberries in my Grandma’s garden.
MIDDLE OF THE ROAD ● 3.5% ABV ● 375ml Cans/Draft
Oatmeal Pale Ale
Our brewpub is situated in the picturesque town of Maleny which means that a lot of our visitors are day-trippers and need to be able to drive home. The Middle of the Road was made to ensure these designated drivers didn't have to miss out. And this beer is anything other than a bland mid-strength! It pours a light golden, straw colour but a large portion of rolled oats and wheat malts give this beer body and texture far above it’s ABV. Then a generous dose of Amarillo on the dry-hop provides a lovely citrus, peach nose that draws you in and keeps you coming back for more!
MILK STOUT ● 4.8% ABV ● 375ml Cans/Draft
Stout with added Lactose
Our milk stout pours beautifully dark with a burnt caramel coloured head. The aroma has distinct roast malt notes with hints of smoke. Lactose is added to ensure a smooth medium body to balance the roasted malt. And a clean sweet finish ensures this is an easy drinker and a stout for all seasons at 4.8%.
BROUHAHA/WOOLLY MAMMOTH/CALIBRE STRAWBERRY RHUBARB SOUR ● 4.2% ABV ● Cans/Draft
Strawberry and Rhubarb Kettle Sour
Strawberry Rhubarb Sour is a kettle sour beer made using Maleny Dairies natural yoghurt as the souring culture. Then stewed rhubarb and strawberries were added into the fermenter during secondary fermentation. The resulting beer is light pink in colour and has strawberries on the nose but the taste is anything but sweet. Strong berrry flavours develop into sour rhubarb and finish nice and dry.
GRAPEFRUIT NEIPA ● 6.5% ABV ● Draft
To say this beer is hazy is an understatement! Huge dry- hop additions of Citra, El Dorado and Motueka impart citrus and lime characteristics which complement the additions of grapefruit. Think hops, hops more hops. And then some balanced acidity and bitterness from the grapefruit and you have yourself one hell of a haze craze!
INDIA PALE ALE ● 6.7% ABV ● 375ml Cans/Draft
Our IPA is a freshly hopped American IPA. It is a light caramel, amber colour with a nose to die for! Huge passionfruit and stone fruit notes come from generous late hopping with Amarillo, Chinook and Centennial. But this IPA is all about balance. A predominantly English ale malt backbone ensure this beer is juicy, smooth and well- rounded. This takes the best parts of East and West Coast IPA’s and blends them into a beautifully balanced IPA that is far too smooth for 6.7%.
BLOOD ORANGE SAISON ● 5.8% ABV ● Draft
Blood Orange Saison
Our Raspberry Saison has become our flagship beer but with the weather heating up we figured it was the perfect time to try a summery variation on our saison base. The idea of a Blood Orange Saison is one we had been throwing around since inception and we had been itching at the opportunity to make it on a big scale. This beer pours a very full golden colour with hints of orange glistening through. But the aroma is where you really experience the blood orange juice. A fresh citrus whack oozes from the glass the minute you get close to it, with the saison yeast accompanying it beautifully on the mid palette. The fine carbonation and orange zest dance delicately on your tongue and leave you reaching for another gulp…
NORTHERN HEMISPHERE IPA ● 6.8% ABV ● 375ml CANS/Draft
Collaboration with Brisbane Northside Bars - Netherworld, The Scratch, The Mill, Zero Fox, Tapworks, Fitz & Potts and Brewski. The mission was to create a true American style IPA showcasing some of the best hops to come out of the Northern Hemisphere. And the excuse was to get some of the best bars in Brisbane together and have some fun doing it. Cascade, Centennial and Columbus are the three musketeers of American IPAs and this beer is all about them. Expect a balanced malt backbone that gives this beer its lovely amber colour and allows the oils of these hops to dance around on the tongue and leave you with a gentle bitterness that entices you back for more.
MARZEN ● 6.0% ABV ● Draft
The amount of times we have been asked "Do you have a lager?” over the bar at our brewpub is beyond count. And we have been looking forward to the challenge of making a lager since setting up our brewery in Maleny. However with tank space at such a premium in our brewery, ‘lagering’ a beer for 3 months has just been impossible to fit into the schedule. But when we were asked to brew a special Oktoberfest lager as part of the Bavarian Brewing Competition it was just too good to turn down. Our Oktoberfest beer is made entirely in the German purity law. We have sourced the finest German malts, noble hops and yeast and manipulated our water profile to make it as close to that of the clean, crisp water found in Munich. It then spent 3 months maturing at near freezing temperatures in one of our tanks. And the beer that results is clean, crisp and flavoursome. This beer is perfect for the Australian climate with the increased malt bill providing a complexity and sweetness that is often missing in lower alcohol lagers. This beer will have you slamming stein after stein and screaming prost!
BROUHAHA/KAIJU! BEER - KAIJ-OUHAHA ● 6.2% ABV ● Draft
Kaiju and Brouhaha are both known for making cracking beers but our own styles could not be more different from each other. And that is what made this collaboration so much fun as we really tried to both bring something to the table and make sure we were both represented in the final beer. Here at Brouhaha we are well known for our Saisons and Kaiju for their healthy doses of the finest hops! So a hoppy saison was the obvious choice! A huge whack of Nelson Sauvin hops on the nose confuse you in to thinking this could easily be an IPA. But then the French Saison comes in through prominently in that mid palette and adds the fruity notes that complement the NZ hop bill. The more complex malt bill marries it all together and leaves you with a gentle bitter tickle that strongly suggests you should have another sip!
NE FINGER IPA ● 6.8% ABV ● Draft
NEIPA With Finger Limes
12 months ago we did a very limited batch of our standard IPA with a healthy addition of 13kg of hand-squeezed finger limes. It sold out within weeks and since then we have been asked almost daily when it would return. And 12 months almost to the day, its back. But this time it is built on the backbone of our NEIPA recipe. To say this beer is hazy is an understatement! Huge dry- hop additions of Citra and Motueka complement the known for their citrus and lime characteristics, complement the pink finger limes that were hand-squeezed and added into the fermenter in secondary fermentation. Think hops, hops more hops. And then some balanced acidity and bitterness from the finger limes. And you have yourself one hell of a haze craze!
RED IPA ● 6.0% ABV ● Draft
A reddish- brown colour that comes from the use of shepherd’s delight and roast barley additions. There are hints of malt and roast notes on the nose, but then a big punch of citrus hops! A big dry hop of motueka, mosaic and amarillo ensure this is an IPA at heart. The gentle roastiness of the malts pair brilliantly with the generous hop additions to ensure this finishes nice and dry, ensuring you keep coming back for more!
AMERICAN WHEAT ● 4.4% ABV ● Draft
Dry Hopped Wheat Ale
The American wheat ale is made for the Queensland summer. In the glass it has a golden, straw like haze to it that is representative of any un-filtered wheat beer. However, the use of a clean American yeast ensures the yeast takes the backseat to the hops in this one. With wheat malts making up over half of the malt bill, this ale has body and texture in spades. A heavy dry-hop of Amarillo and Topaz add a grassy, citrus nose that when paired with a low level of bitterness makes this the ultimate summer slammer.
WEST COAST IPA ● 6.2% ABV ● Draft
West Coast IPA
A light golden malt bill of 2-row barley and vienna malts set the backbone of this beer. Large additions of El Dorado and Citra are added late to ensure this one is aromatic, fresh and juicy. Don’t expect any lingering bitterness as that isn’t our style. We believe hops should be punchy and fresh! Long live the sessionable IPA!
BROUHAHA/3 RAVENS -THE GOLDEN CIRCLE FRUIT CUP ● 7.5% ABV ● Draft
North East IPA (NEIPA) / Hazy IPA
This beer is all about collaboration. With Brendan's (3 Ravens) expertise in the NEIPA style we set about creating ‘Juicy' on fruit induced steroids. Brendan cropped off some yeast from their latest batch of ‘Juicy' and flew it up under refrigeration especially for the brew. Then 13 lucky amateur brewers got busy zesting and juicing 20kg of oranges to be added into the boil. Huge whirlpool additions of Citra and El Dorado, followed by a pre- fermentation dry-hop and then our biggest dry-hop ever make this one beautifully aromatic beast. Then passionfruit and pineapple additions straight into the fermentor in secondary add the beautiful citrus, breakfast juice backbone. Eat your heart out Golden Circle, as this is Fruit Cup on steroids!
AMBER ALE ● 4.7% ABV ● Draft
An English- inspired amber ale that is all about the sweet, sweet malt. English ale, cara-amber, crystal and munich malts make this a lovely toffee- coloured beer that smells like honey and caramel biscuits. It is lightly hopped with Brooklyn, Waimea and Motueka to balance out the sweetness of these wonderful specialty malts.However this is not about the hops, they play second fiddle to the smooth, sweet malts.
IMPERIAL STOUT ● 8.3% ABV ● Draft
Rich, thick and smooth. Beautifully black in colour with a thick copper head. The english ale yeast presents itself beautifully on the nose before making way to the roast coffee and chocolate notes expected from this style. But overnight cold steeping of the dark malts ensures this beast is rich in colour and flavour but without those bitter, acrid notes that often accompany the style. This is seriously drinkable at 8.3% and is the perfect accompaniment on those cold nights.
APA SUNSHINE COAST COLLABORATION ● 5.3% ABV ● 375ml Cans
American Pale Ale
A healthy dose of Gladfield’s Supernova Malt provides the malty backbone to support this hop bill. Supernova was created to provide the caramelised colour and flavour, without any cloying sweetness than is often present when using caramalts. Then healthy hot additions of Chinook, Citra and Mosaic ensures a pronounced but balanced bitterness. Then a double dry-hop of Citra and Mosaic create that fresh citrus nose that this style is renowned for! Hops: Citra, Chinook and Mosaic.
APA BRISBANE COLLABORATION ● 5.3% ABV ● Draft
American Pale Ale
A healthy dose of Gladfield’s Supernova Malt provides the malty backbone to support this hop bill. Supernova was created to provide the caramelised colour and flavour, without any cloying sweetness than is often present when using caramalts. Then healthy hot additions of Centennial, El Dorado and Mosaic ensures a pronounced but balanced bitterness. Then a double dry-hop of El Dorado and Mosaic create that fresh citrus nose that this style is renowned for! Hops: El Dorado, Centennial and Mosaic.
RAISIN HELL ● 10.0% ABV ● Draft
Belgian Dubbel with Raisins
Brewed for GABS festival 2017. A Belgian Dubbel aged on rum soaked American oak (Ord River Rum) with fresh raisins. Fruity spice from the classic Belgian yeast, complemented by vanilla and the sweet raisin. 15kg of raisins went into the mash, then another 10kg was added in secondary fermentation.
MANGO PASSIONFRUIT WHEAT ● 4.8% ABV ● Draft
Fruit Wheat Beer
A clean, simple malt bill and American yeast strain ensure this is all about the fruit. With 65kg of mango purée and 25kg of passionfruit juice added in secondary fermentation, there is nothing artificial about this. Fresh mango balances beautifully against the tartness of the passionfruit juice and makes for an unmistakeable, tropical nose. But a gentle bitterness reminds you this ain't no breakfast juice!
DIPA ● 8.5% ABV ● Draft/Limited Cans
Double American IPA
This is essentially an IPA on steroids. Increased ABV. Double the hop bill. But still far too easy to drink! A pale malt bill allows these huge American hops to shine. We have double dry-hopped this beast with Amarillo, Chinook and Simcoe and then left it for an extended period of cold-conditioning to balance it all out. Patience has made sure this beer drinks far too smoothly for it’s 8.5%. But beware, these won’t just sneak up on you…
LEMON ASPEN SOUR ● 4.2% ABV ● Draft
Lemon Aspen Kettle Sour
DRY HOPPED SOUR ● 4.2% ABV ● Draft
Dry Hopped (Moteuka) Kettle Sour
SESSION IPA ● 4.9% ABV ● Draft
The session IPA pours a light golden, straw colour. Heavy late hopping provides a fresh, summery nose of citrus, limes and a touch of earthiness. The malt bill is predominantly extra pale and pilsner malts which keeps it thin and dry and allows the hops to shine through. An initially sweet and fruity palate opens up to a high level of bitterness that finishes quite dry and bitter. Definitely one for the hop-heads.
IRISH RED ALE ● 4.2% ABV ● Draft
Irish Red Ale
As the name promises, this ale pours a dark amber, red colour. And there are no prizes for guessing that this one is all about the malt. With shepherd’s delight, red back and english ale malts all appearing in large doses, there is no shortage of complexity to this malt profile. Fermenting this out with a clean ale yeast and an extended cold conditioning period, ensures a nice yeast profile without any off-flavours overpowering the hero of this beer, the malt. Gentle hopping with the German hop hallertau, gives it a very mild level of bitterness which adds to the roasty, biscuity flavours of those specialty malts.
BLACK IPA ● 6.2% ABV ● Draft
American Black IPA
Topaz, Columbus and Centennial give this Black IPA a smokey, coffee meets citrus nose. This heavily hopped IPA tests the boundaries of balance through the mid-palate before the English ale, crystal and munich malts provide a sweet caramel backbone that reigns it all back in and leaves you seeking more.
SMOKEY SOUR CHERRY ● 3.5% ABV ● Draft
This was kettle- soured over the course of a few days by using a live Lactobacillus culture from a local dairy. We then fermented it out on US-05 to produce a very thin, dry, tart beer with a pH of 3.3. In the latter stages of secondary fermentation we added local Australian sour cherries. What resulted is a beautiful pink/ cranberry coloured beer, with almost perfect clarity. It has tart cherries and a hint of smoke on the nose but the hero is the dry, spritzy sourness that evaporates on your tongue and leaves you constantly chasing another sip.
