Discover the best of local breweries every Friday with The Local Taphouse's Brewery of the Month!

Every month, a different local brewery will be taking over our taps to bring you the best of their brews, fresh from the keg. Join us from 5pm every Friday this July as we tap into the following Southpaw brews:

Friday 5 July
Uncle Charlie APA 5.9% ABV

This brew is a full-on, hop-packed American-style pale ale. It’s bursting with tropical fruit flavours, citrus and pine aromas with a punchy up-front bitterness from a combination of classic US and NZ hops.

Friday 12 July
New Brighton Lager 4.5% ABV

An easy drinking, crisp golden lager. Some mild, spicy hops and gentle malt sweetness makes it a refreshing sessionable beer. Perfect after a hard day or as an entry into the craft world.

Friday 19 July
NZ Pale Ale 4.0% ABV

A fresh take on the classic NZ pale ale. Tropical fruit flavours from NZ hops, matched perfectly with a light caramel sweetness from all NZ malt makes it a well-balanced, extremely drinkable pale ale. Something a little different while maintaining great approach-ability.

Friday 26 July
Riding Pine Red IPA 5.5% ABV

This brew is rich in malt complexity and balance with spicy, piney hop flavours. It has a deep, zestful aroma from a combination of US and NZ hop varieties and a rounded bitterness to accentuate the full bready, toasty malt sweetness. 

To learn more about these brews, come to our “Meet the Brewer” event on Friday 26 July from 5pm. We’ll have the Southpaw brewers in for the evening, so you can talk hops, aromas, bodies, fermentation, mouthfeel and conditioning all night long!
