Animal Cask Beers

Late at night the little creatures sneak into the brewery and make special beers …. They make them once and get bored.. Then move onto a new idea …

These are one off limited edition beers.

Animal Brewing Co -Hippo 4.8%  Hoppy Hippo

10% Oats give this animal plenty of body.  Perfect for all the hops eaten up.  The US hop, Jaryllo is paired with (Bohemian) Premient and (NZ) Rakau for smooth flavours of banana, stone fruits and pear with floral and spicy notes wading in the background.  All this balanced with lightly toasted caramel and rye malt flavours for a little added complexity. 

Animal Brewing Co - Bad Kitty - 5.9% IPA

The street fighting alley cat cousin of the Hop Kitty - its the bigger stronger version -

definitely not house trained.

Animal Brewing Co - Sea Star 4.6%  Hopped Up Amber

Brewed in collaboration with the Star pub in Oxford, Sea- Star is an orangey amber beer packed with NZ Hops, Motueka and Dr Rudi, and dry-hopped with Wakatu.  Toasted malts lend themselves to sweet caramel and raisin notes which are complemented with deep lemon/lime, floral and vanilla hoppy flavours. To be enjoyed regardless of the weather. 


Animal Brewing Co - HOP-KITTY - 3.9% Hyper Hop Pale

A Low on ABV pale ale, huge on Hops.  Packed with more Citra and Cascade than ever before. HopKitty is bursting with intense tropical and citrus flavours.  Lighty toasted malts give a hint of sweetness before a second round of hops, big Mango and Lychee zest courtesy of a generous Citra third round of dry hopping.  Just like every crazy cat person, you won't be stopping with one.

[Formerly Hop-Cat IPA - renamed following a Trade Mark Dispute with an American bar company]

Animal Brewing Co -Raccoon 4.6%  American Amber Ale

This little Raccoon has stolen all the Mosaic from our hop store.  An initial blast of tropical, blueberry and citrus flavours is balanced with a hint of roasted malt, from Carafa 1, added during the sparge.  Don’t judge this beer by its colour, or you’ll be in for a hoppy surprise.
