Brewing Up a Storm - Kate Preece (Avenues)

Woolston brewery Cassels & Sons has turned an old tannery into a boutique pub.
"If you want to drink a bottle of beer, you've got to remember that a lot of energy's gone into making the beer and it's always fossil fuel, apart from our beer," says Zak Cassels, of Cassels & Sons brewing company. Unlike other breweries, Cassels & Sons makes its range of cask-conditioned ales, craft beers and lagers using a wood-fired kettle.

Cassels & Sons Pilsner

This beer has much in common with our Lager, but is more generously hopped. Pouring a bright golden hue beneath a pillowy white head, the aroma and palate offer an attractive honey-like sweetness, with lemony and passionfruit notes from the New Zealand hops blending with the biscuit and caramel from the malts.

The Black Velvet Band

Cassels & Sons 'Beer'

Cassels & Sons BeerDescribed by brewer Nigel Mahoney as a ‘fast ale’, this modest strength pale ale is made with a proportion of wheat malt and pours a bright golden hue beneath a fluffy white head. The aroma offers honey, caramel and toasty malt notes along with herbaceous New Zealand hops (Rakau and Green Bullet).

Sweet Stout Wins Out (by Carl Hadler)

In times past, when brewing practices were not as fine-tuned as now, some people were known to add certain sweeteners to their beer. In England in the time of porters and stouts it was common to add sugar and in the late 19th century someone came up with the idea of a milk beer made from whey, lactose and hops.

Back in business by Carl Hadler (The Press July 6, 2011)

With all the uncertainty and frustration caused by the earth shaking over the last nine months, it seems more people are drinking more alcohol to calm the nerves. A lot of the drinking venues in the central city are out of action, but the ones that are still open are very busy. Cassels and Sons has been working since June 2009 to open a brewery and bar on the site of the old tannery in Garlands Rd, Woolston.

Beer matters - German Dunkel - The Press 18/08/2010

Something is afoot in Christchurch that will warm the cockles of a beer drinker's heart. This story starts in a rundown part of Woolston, which in the 1880s was the industrial hub of Christchurch.

Organic Pilsner (Mikes Organic Brewery)

The beautiful fine carbonation quickly forms a dense creamy head that lasts to the last sip.  This beer is bursting with fresh zesty aroma, the New Zealand aromatic hops are proudly presented in their full glory. The grisp bitter flavour is complimented by a full malt body and rounded mouth-feel with the most amazing after taste.

Canterbury Award Winning Craft Beer

To celebrate Canterbury's award winning Craft Breweries success at the 2012 Brewers Guild awards... we have on our guest taps only Canterbury award winning beers!
So head on down to the Brewery and sample beers from Harrington Breweries, Wigram Brewing Company, Three Boys Brewery and Twisted Hop. Check out our video of Zak talking to Carl from Harringtons Breweries about their awards.

Wheat (Three Boys)

Three Boys Wheat evokes ancient abbey ales, when yeasts were wild and spices instead of hops were added for bitterness.

Three Boys use genuine Belgian yeast that with the wheat malt produces the authentic frothy head, cloudiness and huge flavours sought in this wit bier (white beer) style. The addition of coriander and citrus zest really make this beer special.

Hophead IPA (Brew Moon)

An organic India Pale Ale, this is a full bodied, malty beer that is heavily hopped resulting in a fruity hop character with a healthy bitterness balanced by the 5% alcohol.
