Style: Beliner Weisse ABV: 3.5% The second addition to the Mornington Artisanal range is Beleura; a light, refreshing Berliner Weisse. Mornington Artisanal is our range of uncompromised and distinctive hand-crafted ales. A Berliner Weisse is a distinguished sour wheat style ale from Berlin once hailed as ‘The Champagne of the North’. Our interpretation delivers crisp apple and fresh lime aromas. Spritzy carbonation coupled with a palate cleansing acidity make this beer the perfect refreshment. Continuing the local connection of the Mornington Artisanal range, Beleura is named after Beleura House and Garden.

Style: New Zealand Pilsner ABV: 5.4% Our Specialty Beer is a New Zealand Pilsner at 5.4% ABV. Using NZ pilsner malt and a combination of wonderfully unique Nelson Sauvin and Wakata hops, our Pilsner offers light bready yeast character married with white grape and floral hop notes. A smooth lightly sweet honeyed palate carries moderate bitterness and crisp carbonation with the grape character of Nelson Sauvin hops ever-present. A beery ode to our southern neighbours..

Style: XPA ABV: 5.1% Our Specialty Beer is an XPA at 5.1% ABV. Aromatic, balanced and fruity, Simcoe's Revenge is a Pale Ale with a turbo-boost in aromatics. The Simcoe hop proffers strong pine and apricot notes that carry the length of the beer. Mild bitterness leads to a stroke of sweet and soft citrusy flavours through the palate. Simcoe's Revenge is a victory for all to savour. Simcoe hops was once part of the IPA dry-hopping process for Mornington's IPA, but was dropped from the recipe. This is its revenge and it tastes good! BACK TO SPECIALTY BEERS
Style: New England IPA ABV: 6.5% Created from the depth's of a brewer's complex mind comes Squid Rising. A stronger, meaner New England IPA. It's fat, it's cloudy, it's mouthwateringly juicy and shatteringly hoppy! BACK TO SPECIALTY BEERS
Style: New England IPA ABV: 5.2% Our Specialty Beer is a coffee-infused New England IPA at 5.2% ABV. True to the style Coffee Squid presents cloudy in appearance, almost like an unfiltered fruit juice. Mild, enticing espresso aromas laced with citus hop notes leads to a soft lowly-bittered palate of hoppy goodness cut with a building coffee tang. Get juicy, get wired. BACK TO SPECIALTY BEERS
Style: Scotch Ale ABV: 7.6% Silver Screen Scotch Ale was created when we had the crew from Whitehart Bar down to put together a special brew for the Melbourne International Film Festival and went with something warm and wintery. Silver Screen Scotch Ale sits at 7.6% abv and is rich, moreish and with raisin and flavours, this beer would suit anything from an action-blockbuster to a quirky film-noir. To spoil and savour.
