HARROW AND HARVEST (ABV 4.3%) - HOWLER FILL 17
Harrow and Harvest is our interpretation of a traditional Belgian Wit beer. Brewed with malted, rolled and raw wheat, coriander seed, chamomile and Curacao orange peel, this refreshing beer has flavours of lemon and sweet orange and gives way to a crisp, refreshing finish.
SANDCASTLE HEART (ABV 4%) - HOWLER 19 This Kettle soured wheat ale was fermented using Belgian yeast then had Yarra Valley strawberries and citrus zest added in the fermenter. It has a prominent fresh strawberry aroma underpinned by fruitiness from the yeast. The light, refreshing tartness complements the juicy strawberry flavour with an orange fresh zest note.
JEZEBEL (ABV 5.5%) - HOWLER 22
Is a farmhouse pale ale brewed with pilsner malt, flaked rye and oats. Fermented with a blend of French saison and farmhouse yeast and generously dry hopped with Motueka. Notes of melon and lemon peel, balanced bitterness with a dry finish.
CONSTANT STATE (ABV 4.7%) - HOWLER 20
Is a saison brewed using pilsner malt, unmalted rye and raw wheat and in conjunction with natural carbonation in the keg, pours a lovely golden straw colour with a soft, pillowy head. By combining 2 saison yeast strains, Constant State has a very aromatic & complex flavour profile of pear & citrus balanced with peppery/earthy notes. These flavours are complemented by the use of New World European hops late in the brew to enhance the fruity & floral flavours.
FORCE OF NATURE (ABV 5.4%) - HOWLER 20
Our interpretation of an old world farmhouse ale. The unique blend of saccharomyces and Brettanomyces yeast, cultured up in our lab, and the Triticale malt has created a complex beer that is slightly tart with notes of orange citrus and a medium-dry finish.
A MILLION STARS (ABV 5.5%) - HOWLER 22
Our winter farmhouse ale pours a deep dark brown that is almost black, so dark that light does not pass through the glass. We added cardamom, black pepper, rosemary, star anise and juniper berries along with the French hop, Aramis, to give a heady bouquet of spices and pine. This ale does not drink like you would expect a dark ale to. It is dry and delicate, balanced and drinkable, just as we like our farmhouse ales/ saisons to be. We made this dark farmhouse ale in celebration of the Winter Solstice and the long nights of the season. Delve into the darkness, discover the many layers of flavour within and let A MILLION STARS shine bright.
FIRESIDE (ABV6.2%) - HOWLER 24
FIRESIDE is our seasonal Winter barrel fermented smoked robust porter. An exploration in the nuances of different smoked malts, this year we showcase an oak smoked wheat malt. With aromas of vanilla, dark chocolate, sweet smoke & campfire, this beer is full and rich on the palate with flavours reminiscent of leather, smooth smoke, lanolin and rich chocolate with a lingering oak flavour. The smoke flavour doesn't overwhelm but compliments. At a warming 6.2% ABV, pull up your favorite lounge chair and get FIRESIDE!

WONDERS OF NATURE (ABV 5.8%) - HOWLER 24
Is the barrel fermented variant of our farmhouse ale. We have used the same mixed culture as Force of Nature but made some slight changes in the malt profile. This beer has an earthy funk character with the oak contributing to its soft acidity.
ALAMEDA #3 (ABV 5.6%) - HOWLER 26
Alameda is a selected blend of our golden sour beer aged in oak barrels. Each blend of Alameda highlights a unique mix of yeast and bacteria which will differ from blend to blend. This blend has a clean lemon tart acid profile, prominent oak on the palate, vinous notes and a vibrant finish.
DARK EYES (5.8% ABV) - HOWLER 29
After spending 9 months in oak puncheons on our house culture this amber sour beer was transferred onto Yarra Valley blackberries from our friends at Rayner's Orchard. Dark eyes pours a beautiful rich, inky purple with an earthy sweet aroma upfront, giving way to flavour notes of deep, dark berry and a refreshing bright acidic finish.
FORTUNE TELLING LADY (5.8% ABV) - HOWLER 29
Golden Sour Beer Aged in Oak Barrels with Morello Sour Cherries (ABV 5.8%)
In early January we received a load of morello sour cherries from the Yarra Valley which are only available fresh for 2-3 weeks of the year. Knowing we only had one chance this year to create Fortune Telling Lady we spent many months deciding on the appropriate blend of base golden barrel aged sour beer to best showcase the early season cherries.
UNDER THE RED SKY (5.8% ABV) - HOWLER 29
Red Sour Beer Aged in Oak Barrels w/ Blood Plums
After 8 months maturation in our puncheons, this red sour beer was racked into barrique oak barrels with fresh Yarra Valley blood plums and allowed to referment for 8 weeks before packaging. It has vibrant aromas of fresh stone fruit that melds seamlessly with the malty base beer. The refreshing acidity adds to the full, juicy, plum flesh flavour which is akin to biting into that perfectly ripe blood plum freshly picked from the orchard.
