Black Duck Beers:
Summer Swallow – Mid Strength Pale Ale
A deliberately light body and malt profile, with an interesting hop profile. There is a hint of melon aroma and a tart finish. The Summer Swallow is a good refreshing beer, which accompanies the aroma of freshly cut grass.

East Coast – Pale Ale
The east coast of Australia is the most beautiful place on earth, and the Pale Ale is inspired by the idea of relaxing, beer in hand, admiring the view. A light body and bitterness, and a mild floral aroma enhance the drinkability and thirst quenching properties of this beer. Grab an East Coast Pale Ale and start soaking up Summer!

Platypus – Aussie Pale Ale
Australian Pale Ales sit in the middle, not too hoppy, not too rich and sweet, not too bitter. This Australian Ale has a light hop aroma, that is more earthy than floral. The body and mouth feel is full but not too heavy, and the mild bitterness is enough to balance the sweetness, but not over stated. This beer is built to withstand extended sessions of Aussie culture. Being preservative and additive free, you’ll feel less weathered after a long innings.
4.3% abv. 17 IBU. 13 EBC. Malt 6. Hops 5.
Golden Goose – Aussie Golden Ale
The Golden Goose Aussie Golden Ale has been created as a vessel for hops. We use all Australian ingredients in the Golden Ale and enjoy trying different hop combinations as we work our way through an ever increasing range. Despite the use of different hops, this Golden Ale will always offer a rich fruity and floral aroma, a moderately light body, and a healthy bitterness to cleanse the palate. A great match for flavoursome, spicy food and pizza. Enjoy it from your favourite glass for the best experience.
4.3% abv. 25 IBU. 9 EBC. Malt 5. Hops 7.
Mother Duck – American Pale Ale
What started out as a collaboration, has now begun its own journey. The Mother Duck is an American Pale Ale with four hope varieties and three malt profiles, that is sure to tantalise the senses. A fruity, floral bouquet, with pine undertones and a richness in body, balance this beer nicely.
5.5% abv. 29 IBU. 12 EBC. Malt 7. Hops 8.
Heron’s Craic – Irish Red Ale
Made for the wandering Paddy yearning for home. We have used water as pure as the driven snow, and the subtle aroma of noble Fuggle hops to set the scene of rolling fields of green, and fences made of stone. There is a caramel, sweet undertone, and a hint of dark roast that give this beer a delicious flavour profile. Enjoy with a hearty stew, or a mountain of Colcannon.
4.3% abv. 19 IBU. 29 EBC. Malt 7. Hops 4.
Indian Runner – India Pale Ale
India Pale Ales are traditionally high in alcohol and bitterness to withstand long sea voyages. We compliment these properties with a creative amount of hops for aroma and flavour, resulting in a complex, interesting beer. The bitterness is a dominating character, but coupled with a rich body, our Runner is a great match for a platter of good quality cheeses, bread, and cured meats.
6% abv. 52 IBU. 25 EBC. Malt 8. Hops 9.
Black Bird – Traditional Dark Ale
This Dark Ale is based on an English beer style. We have used some traditional hop varieties, and kept the body a little bit lighter, to make drinking this beer a satisfying experience. We have created a beer that offers all the rich chocolate, and coffee flavours and aromas you should expect from a Dark Ale. As with all good beer, drinking from your favourite glass will make it much more enjoyable.
4.3% abv. 29 IBU. 48 EBC. Malt 8. Hops 3.
Phoenix – Migration Stout
There is a whole lot of darkness in this dangerously drinkable Stout. We have used three different dark roast malts, that give a complexity of sweetness, coffee, burnt toast, alcohol warms, and a hint of aniseed from the aptly named Phoenix hops. A big Stout, that will keep you interested well into the next glass.
7.5% abv. 50 IBU. 76 EBC. Malt 9. Hops 5.
