COFFEE BROWN ALE
We’ve teamed up with fellow locals – Abstract coffee to create this wintery little number. This beauty has a subtle malt bill with just enough chocolate and roasted malts to compliment the beer whilst not overpowering the generous additions of single origin - Ethiopian Guji coffee beans. The coffee was added late in the fermentation to achieve results similar to a cold brew. Doing this imparts all of the delicious coffee flavour and aroma without the added bitterness you get from brewing the coffee with heat.
We think it’s the perfect blend between a Single-O cold brew and a classical old school brown ale. The result leaving you with a discerning confusion on where your morning cuppa finishes and your afternoon bevvie begins.

Sabro Sunset NEIPA radiates with an opaque orange haze. Sabro dominates, but with a splash of Samba, together they leave a juicy sunrise dripping with notes of pineapple and coconut.
Triple the dry hopping, double the oats, insert style correct yeast and you have yourself one heck of a New England style IPA. Have you noticed how beautiful sunsets in winter are? Hopefully now you do.
Malt - Voyager Pale, Vienna, Wheat, malted and rolled Oats
Hops - Sabro, Samba
SABRO SUNSET NEIPA
This wild but not so wild kettle sour is fruited with native Australian Illawarra plum and strawberry gum straight from our backyard. Lightly soured to brighten the unique flavour of the Illawarra plum which adds a somewhat light pine and grape quality. The Strawberry gum, a eucalyptus tree gives the beer its lovely herbal strawberry aroma. Pouring a light ruby colour it looks like it could even be healthy but don't hold us to that.
Spring has sprung so enjoy what our beautiful country has to offer. Drink local, drink native.
MALT - German pilsner, wheat, oats
MISC - Illawarra plum, Strawberry Gum
NATIVE STORM SOUR
COASTAL HAZE NEPA
It's no lie we love the beach living on the east coast of Australia. There are days when we put down the mash paddle and soak up what our beautiful beaches have to offer - Sun, sand, waves and everything in between. If only we could live in this coastal haze forever.....
But back to work and we've brought a little piece of paradise with us.
This beer takes us back to those coastal sunny days with its huge tropical aromas, hazy - sandy appearance and juicy finish. The abv has been dialed back whilst still keeping that soft pillowy mouthfeel. Not only this but we've blended some of the newest hops to come out of America and Australia with older classics that have proven their worth time and time again.
Malt - Pilsner, Malted Oats, Vienna, Rolled Wheat.
Hops - Galaxy, Mosaic, HPA 016, Sabro.
The silly season is upon us, so we’ve gone and brewed a double dry hopped, hazy double IPA. Big on Juice, big on hops and big on Jingle. Will go with just about any dish your family gathering can come up with, whether it be a leg of ham or shrimp on the barbie. This tropical treat will give you a sense of holiday even if you're stuck at home this summer.
Share it with the fam and friends or reserve it for that cool Uncle who you rarely get to see. Just don't drink too many of these on your own or Christmas could get a little blurry.
It's been a crazy year, so from the team at Grassy Knoll, tin
responsibly and have a Merry Hoppy Christmas!
MALT - Pale, Oats, Vienna, Wheat, Chit malt
HOPS - NZH 107, Eclipse, Citra
JINGLE JUICE IIPA
IDAHO SUNSET NEIPA
For our second instalment of our sunset series we've gone with a big favourite of ours: Idaho 7.
Named for its home state, this late maturing hop radiates with juicy tropical and stone fruits, supported by sticky pine and notes of black tea.
Apart from the change of hops expect the beer to have that same malt finish and hazy light orange colour. Triple the dry hops, double the oats, style appropriate yeast and you got another banger.
Best enjoyed over a sunset!
MALT - Voyager Pale, Vienna, Wheat, malted and rolled Oats
HOPS - Cryo Idaho 7, Citra
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA MYRTLE
After many a yarn over a beer with our mates from Papi's, we just couldn't say no to brewing this mutant of a beer. This beer has something for everyone: It's big, it's thick, it's hazy, it's sour and it's even gluten reduced.
We've started with a big oat filled malt bill, kettled soured it for two days and then added copious amounts of whirlpool hops along with Native Lemon Myrtle right from Papi's backyard!
It's super lemony on the nose and tongue with a sharp citrus acidity. To add complexity to this we've dry hopped it with a bunch of our favourite hops which complements the strong lemon myrtle finish.
At 7% probably best to not drink this while practicing with your ninja nunchucks. Cowabunga!
MALT - Voyager Pale, Malted oats, Chit malt
HOPS - Lemondrop, Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria
MISC - Lemon Myrtle
Juicy and creamy, juicy and creamy, juicy and creamy. As the GK brew team wake from their daydream, this beer might just be their dreamiest beer to date. The copious amounts of Strata balanced off with a smooth Oat Malt addition and milk sugar sweetness is just heaven. If you like pineapple, this is a straight up juicy tropical pineapples punch that maintains a light body regardless of the extra sweetness. The yeast gives the body an extra softness while the haze is there but just enough to
make your friends think you're cool. But you are already cool in our books, so like you, keep this beer cool and drink fresh.
MALT - Pale, Oats, Wheat
HOPS - Strata, Citra
OAT CREAM INDIA PALE ALE
We love freshly harvested hops almost as much as we love supporting locals. Brewing with only Ryefield hops and Voyager malts has been a love affair we've had for a long time. After a few hours driving down from Wollongong, we picked and brought back the fresh hops to brew with them the very next day. The Cascade and Centennial wet hops give the beer an earthy and floral characteristic, with hints of pineapple and pine. The malt bill is light and flavourful from the use of Vienna and Munich malts.
Drink fresh and enjoy this locally grown, locally brewed West Coast style IPA.
MALT - Pale, Munich, Vienna, Wheat
HOPS - Centenniel, Cascade
FRESH COAST WET HOP IPA
MIDNIGHT UNICORN BIPA
Take a sip and ride this magical midnight unicorn. Zappa will take you through pillowy clouds over a tropical hop filled landscape. When making the decent we will be entering some turbulence with light roasted malts then gently landing at our smooth and creamy lactose filled destination.
Enjoy with Music - Enjoy Fresh
MALT - Pale, Oats, Wheat, Sinamar
HOPS - Zappa, Amarillo, Sabro
