Blue Moon

Blue Moon

 

abv: 5.4%

Pale & Refreshing


Blue Moon® Belgian White* was our first year-round release back in 1995.

It started with our brewmaster, Keith Villa, wanting to craft a beer inspired by the flavorful Belgian Wits he enjoyed while studying brewing in Belgium. He brewed his interpretation using Valencia orange peel versus the traditional tart Curaçao orange peel, for a subtle sweetness, and added a touch of coriander to provide balance. Then he added oats and wheat to create a smooth, creamy finish that's inviting to the palate. As a final touch, he garnished the beer with an orange slice to heighten the citrus aroma and taste. Its natural unfiltered appearance adds to the depth of flavors in Belgian White*.

Brooklyn Lager

Brooklyn Lager

 

abv: 5.2%

Golden & Malty


In the late 1800’s Brooklyn was one of the largest brewing centers in the country, home to more than 45 breweries. Lager beer in the “Vienna” style was one of the local favorites. Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which we’ve used in a Viennese-style beer to create an American original.

Camden Hells Lager

Camden Hells Lager

 

abv: 4.6%

Golden & Refreshing


A classic lager that's exactly what it should be: easy-drinking, crisp and dry with beautiful bubbles. Clean and refreshing with a dry hop finish, you can taste the great depth of flavour which comes from the long, slow maturation in tank. This is how a great lager should taste.

About Chang Beer


Chang beer is now enjoyed in all corners of the globe. Only the finest ingredients go into the production of Thailand's Chang beer including the finest barley malt and pure deep-well water sourced in Thailand.

HERITAGE
Chang, in Thai, translates as elephant. An animal renowned for its superior strength and mental capacity. Elephants played a major role in Thailand's history, taking warriors into battle against invaders as well as being used in royal and religious ceremonies. In particular a white elephant was a venerable creature worthy of use by royalty and all those of noble birth.

The two white elephants on the Chang beer logo symbolise happiness, harmony and prosperity.

CONCEPT
Chang beer is a combination of Thailand's plentiful resources, creating an authentic Thai beer OF international quality and a clear uniqueness.

Great care and attention has been taken to create the right taste from a blend of ingredients to compliment an array of spicy Thai foods.

Quick to become one of the leading South-East Asian brands, Chang uses deep well-water to achieve the perfect mineral composition to brew lager. The deep well water used to brew Chang beer is so pure it is bottled and sold in Thailand as mineral water.

AWARDS
The Chang brand exceeded every ones expectations, by becoming the number one selling beer brand in Thailand within only 4 years, surpassing a market share of 50%. Today Chang has a strengthening presence not just in South East Asia but around the rest of the world.

Hot off the success of winning two gold medals in 2008 at the USA World Beer Championships and Monde Selection in 2009, Chang was awarded another gold medal from the 2010 World Beers and Drinks Selection. In addition to these recent wins, Chang has also been awarded Australian International Beer Award medals, proving its international appeal.

Meantime London Lager

Meantime London Lager

 

abv: 4.5%

Pale & Refreshing


LONDON LAGER
4.5% ABV


Meantime Brew Master, Alastair Hook, has spent 20 years planning the quintessential English lager. His reasoning is simple.The great European lager brewers use very soft water and neutral yeasts to ensure that only the flavours of their locally grown malt and hops come to the fore. East Anglia is home to the world’s finest malting barley and Kent is home to some of the world’s best hops. Midway between the two, London is ideally placed to bring them together in a straightforward, clean, long-matured, unpasteurised lager, where all you can taste is malt and hop.

FOOD PAIRING

The hops in Meantime London Lager enable it to stand up much better than most lagers to stronger flavours such as mature cheeses, hams and smoked meats, or oily fish.

Singha, a Thai mythical creature in the form of a Lion has been a part of Thai history and nation for as long as anyone can remember.
