VIENNA Lager

VIENNA Lager

Pre-Prohibition Lager4.5% ABV

Scott's Brewing Co.Oamaru, New Zealand

Originating in Austria, the Vienna Lager really took off in America pre-1919 (when prohibition began), hence coined thE “Pre Prohibition Lager”. Our old world Vienna-style lager begins with crystal clear Alpine Water. Fermented very cold and slow. The result is a copper coloured lager that has a noted malty sweetness with a touch more richness than your usual lager. Hopped to balance the distinct toasty malt profile. The finish – clean, crisp and perfectly dry.

B-10 London-style Porter

B-10 London-style Porter

English Porter4.5% ABV

Scott's Brewing Co.Oamaru, New Zealand

We like to think of this Porter as a historic artifact, retelling the stories of how this style oiled the wheels of the industrial revolution and was the thirst-quenching beer of the masses. This London-style brown Porter has lots of chewy English style malts, all grown locally of course – our Porter is a fantastic showcase of NZ malts. Caramel sweetness, coffee and milk chocolate notes, drawn from deeply roasted malts to create a complex combination of fine flavour. A great style to slowly sip on over long conversations about how good dark beer really is!

BOULDER NZ Pale Ale

BOULDER NZ Pale Ale

New Zealand Pale Ale5.0% ABV

Scott's Brewing Co.Oamaru, New Zealand

Only in the last 200 or so years, hops have become synonymous with beer, first as a preservative and later as flavour enhancer. With time, the term ‘ale’ was repurposed to describe a variety of beer full of hops, a real beer for the real beer arbiter. In designing this recipe the brewers had in mind a ‘sessionable’ Pale Ale. A semi chewy mix of ale, pilsner and crystal malt provides our Boulder with a smooth malty backbone to balance the late addition hops of Cascade, Pacifica and Motueka. This flagrant ale delivers with broad citrus & passion fruit notes resulting in a big and ballsy drop.

DAMN FINE CHAP Raspberry Cider

Meet our damn fine chap, he’s jaunty, refined and well bred. This chap can be a dry, but overall very pleasant. With a light blush hue, this cider packs a punch, delicate raspberry flavor’s dance over the palate, whist still holding onto the dryness of Scotts ‘parched’ apple cider.

Back in the glory days of Oamaru, when beer was swilled and trouble abounded, the unyielding Harbourmaster bought order to the harbor – the centre of the chaos.

NINETEEN 05 Golden Ale

Golden Ale 5.0% ABV

Scott's Brewing Co.Oamaru, New Zealand

It was a long dry spell for the region since the year 1905 when prohibition put a cork in all brewing in the area... A hundred years on; Scotts pioneer brew is an extremely approachable beer for those who thirst. This beer is as a hybrid; ale brewed as a lager. Light carbonation, with delicate hop hints of citrus & tropical fruits, then leveled with local, fine-grained pilsner malt – resulting in the ultimate light and punchy drop.

PARCHED Cider

PARCHED Cider

Dry Mead5.0% ABV

Scott's Brewing Co.Oamaru, New Zealand

The exact definition of “cider” varies from one geographical region to another. In Europe, cider is an alcoholic drink made from fermented juice of apples, whereas in America cider often simply refers to unfermented apple juice while the alcoholic version is generally called “hard cider”. It is important to clarify the use of the term at a bar, as you wouldn’t want to be caught drinking apple juice on a Friday night. So if you’re feeling parched ol’ mate, lets be clear...Our cider is ultra dry and very hard. With an effervescent mouthfeel it delivers a sharp and clean finale, best served over ice.

PINOT PORTER Barrel Series

PINOT PORTER Barrel Series

English Porter4.5% ABV

Scott's Brewing Co.Oamaru, New Zealand

There is something poetic, almost romantic, about a freshly-poured pint of porter from a nitro tap. The cascading effect is mesmerizing; the waterfall of tiny bubbles slowly yielding to a dark brew with a fluffy, white head that is oh, so delicious. When we talk of nitro, it’s a reference to the type of gas used in the carbonation process. It means the difference between the creamier nitrogen beers and their lively, prickly CO2 counterparts. We aged a fine tasting Porter in Central Otago Pinot Noir barrels for 4 months. The result is a thick mouth feel of roasted coffee and caramel with light and smooth tannins coming through from the oak.

Tar Pot Mary

Tar Pot Mary

Whiskey (Russian Imperial) Stout10.0% ABV

Scott's Brewing Co.Oamaru, New Zealand

This cantankerous lass came to notoriety, not least of all by catching ‘more than the eye’ of the wayfaring stranger, come to rest his laurels from the hardships of land and sea. Scotts have created this brazen brew in her honor. Our Tar Pot Mary is a whisky oak barrel soaked, tar-black stout, and carries more than a tipple of warming whisky… Out of stock.
