The Beers
Local brews, hearty meals and entertainment

A clean and crisp flavoured American style wheat beer, is a great building block for a journey through our beers. The Draught is a pleasantly hopped ale, with aromas of citrus, lemon zest and light spice giving way to flavours of pine and white pepper. The lack of the clove and banana usually associated with wheat ales is due to the use of a plain ale yeast, rather than a specialist wheat yeast.

Beer is a living beverage, which requires Malted Barley and/or Wheat, Hops, Water, Yeast and for some of the specialty beers ingredients such as ginger, orange peel and coriander. The Five Islands Brewing Company's beers are all chemical and preservative free and contain NO added sugar. The brewing cycle takes anywhere from 14 to 28 days. The process is a number of different stages.
