mike’s is committed to offering you the very best quality organic beer that we can produce. Joining us are mother nature, who supplies all of the ingredients, and father time, who matures the beer for us.

mike's Beer Range:

Premium Organic Lager - Crafted in the style of a malty German Lager. Pours bright, golden and lively. The aroma is of fresh baked biscuits and pale malt with delicate citrus hops notes. Leaning to the sweeter side, the prevalent full malt flavour is closely followed by a moderate level of bitterness easing out the sweetness. Full in mouth-feel, and smooth on the palate.

mike’s Premium Organic Lager makes a great accompaniment to lemon chicken on jasmine rice and mildly spicy dishes. Serve chilled in a tall pilsner glass to fully appreciate the colour, aroma and fine carbonation. The 4.8% ABV level is somewhat deceiving, the alcohol is masked by the full flavour, a great session beer for warm weather.

Premium Organic Ale - Crafted in the style of an English dark mild ale. Has an alluring deep dark brown colour and bright ruby hue, forming a rich coffee coloured creamy head. The aroma features strong coffee, chocolate and roasted barley characters which are abundant in it’s full round flavour. Bitterness is gentle and it’s mouth-feel is as smooth as suede while the lingering roasted flavours ensure your enjoyment is long lasting. The subtle carbonation means that this beer can be enjoyed with a meal without bloating the drinker. A versatile companion, matched well with rich meat dishes and dark coloured desserts.

Serve in a stemmed goblet at room temperature during the cooler months or in the evenings. This is a great session beer, and at 4% ABV it can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.

Premium Organic Pilsner - Crafted in the style of a Bohemian Czech Pilsner. It pours a light straw colour and crystal clear. 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.

Serve chilled in a tall pilsner glass to fully appreciate the subtle colour, full aroma and striking head. This is the perfect thirst quencher in the heat of Summer and compliments spicy food well, but at 5% ABV, is a beer that needs to be enjoyed in moderation.

Premium Organic Strawberry Blonde - Inspired by the belgian fruit beers, but without the sweetness. Pours bright, delicate tangerine to pink and lively. The aroma is of freshly picked strawberries and pale malt with a delicate fruity sweetness. The full fresh strawberry flavour is clean and smooth on the palate, all the flavour but without the sweetness traditionally associated with fruit beers. It has a spritzy clean mouth-feel helped by the moderate carbonation level.

mike’s Premium Organic Strawberry Blonde makes a great accompaniment to light Summer meals and light desserts. Serve chilled in a tall pilsner glass to fully appreciate the colour, aroma and lively carbonation. The 4% ABV level is somewhat surprising, the alcohol is masked by the full flavour, a great session beer for warm weather.

Premium Organic Whisky Porter - Is an extremely rare and special beer with only a single batch brewed each Summer. Left to rest and mature through Autumn, mike’s Premium Whisky Porter is then released in all it’s glory for your enjoyment in the depths of Winter. This fine beer is not intended to be consumed by the uninitiated, for the pretentious... You need to be worthy of passing this fine drop over your lips.

mike’s Premium Whisky Porter pours a striking black colour with a faint garnet hue, and a tan head settling to a fine veil. The aroma is intricate with roasted malt, toffee and smoky notes upon a deep, treacle like backround. The flavour is even more complex with dried fruit, prunes, whisky smokiness, sherry/ port, treacle, roasted grain, a peaty note and a warm spiciness imparted by the alcohol. It is light and smooth on the palate, finishing with a fleeting sweetness and very long after-flavours of raisins, oak and whisky. The whisky and oak barrels have imparted their characters to the porter and are quite obvious (you don’t have to search for them) but at the same time, there is good balance. A good marriage has been formed between the porter and whisky - they have melded together in this heavenly drop.

For optimum pleasure, this beer should be served at room temperature in small stemmed goblets, to be sipped around the fire in the midst of good company on cold Winter nights. This beer needs to be treated with respect, weighing in at 10.5% ABV, it’s no lightweight and should be shared with good company.

Premium Organic Double India Pale Ale - Inspired by the hoppy English pale ales but leaning toward the highly hopped American variety. Pours rich golden amber with a faint haze and a creamy white head settling to a fine veil. The aroma is complex with tropical fruit including passion fruit, pineapple and melons all vying for attention. The flavour is something to behold, with the sweet tropical fruits now balanced out by the strong biscuity malt flavour and absolutely intense hop bitterness. The very full mouth feel and glowing warm aftertaste serve to further keep the hop bitterness in check. This is an extremely hoppy beer, if the drinker is not partial to hops, they might struggle with this drop. For the true hop heads, this is nectar to be savoured.

Serve chilled in small stemmed goblets, to be sipped on cool Autumn evenings. This beer needs to be treated with respect, weighing in at 9.0% ABV, it’s no lightweight and should be shared with good company.
