Keeping up with new releases and special batches is almost a full time job so The Sip has tried to shine light on some fresh brews in the market.

Let us know about your beer at

Stone and Wood Jasper Ale


Been given a brand tweak and now packed with Galaxy, Enigma and Mosaic hops. Still has that caramel edge. 10/8/17

ABV: 5.4

IBU: 35

BOTTLES: 500ml

Nail NZ Pale Ale

Pale Ale

Some Motueka hops take the drinker to the land of the long white cloud. Hides alcohol very well and leaves you with visions of the tropics. 10/8/17

ABV: 6

IBU: 30

TAP: Available for short time

Fixation Squish IPA


Orange is such a natural match for IPA and Fixation's Tom Delmont has blended the fruit so magnificently. This brew is nudging the ABV scale but is so easy drinking. 30/7/17

ABV: 5.9

IBU: 45

CANS: 375ml

Balter IPA


The name and packaging are simple. But the beer is far more complex with an appropriate hop sting. Another winner from Balter, who are on a hot streak in quick time. 30/7/17

ABV: 6.8

IBU: 72

CANS: 375ml

Cheeky Monkey Australian Lager


A gold medal-winner at Perth Royal Beer Show. If you like the well-known Lagers made by the big guys, you'll adore this version and it leads a rebranding for the brewery. 2/7/17

ABV: 4.6


CANS: 375ml

Gage Roads Sea Devil

Imperial Stout

This Imperial Stout from the west coast has caramel, roast coffee and bitter chocolate, with high alcohols adding some sweetness to the brew. Perfect for winter and at this stage only on tap. 2/7/17

ABV: 9

IBU: 70


Modus Operandi Cascadian Howl

Black IPA

This brew is a tribute to the cartoon coyote that never catches the Road Runner. If only Wile E Coyote had this juice. This style howls with citrus and resinous North West US hops. 2/6/17

ABV: 8.2

IBU: 85

BOTTLE: 500ml

James Squire Cabin Fever

Session IPA

Yet another from the James Squire stable. This easy drinking pale ale features Citra, Centennial, and the new and exciting hop blend Fortnight, which when combined, create a luscious citrus-tropical aroma. 2/6/17

ABV: 4.5

IBU: 35

BOTTLE: 330ml
