The Two Birds story began with a single beer back in 2011 and after 6 years it has grown to a range of five beers, that are brewed all year round. The illustrations and story on the labels depict the inspiration and history of how each beer earned its place in the ongoing range, and also lends a hint on what to expect inside the glass.

Beers 1, 2, 3 and 4 each highlights one of the four key ingredients of beer or a funky addition that can be added into this glorious liquid.  Like most people, the Two Birds enjoy different beers for different occasions and the 5th beer changes with the season.  Enjoy your beer adventure with Two Birds.

Winter Stout

In 2017, the Two Birds added a 5th beer to the flock, but one that changes with each season. Enjoy 4 different beers designed by the Two Birds to make the most of what Mother Nature has to offer. Rain, hail or shine.

Winter Stout
Dark and brooding, like chilly Winter nights, this Oatmeal Stout uses oats to create a creamy mouthfeel and warm you from the inside out. Delicately roasty with a subtle bitterness and dark berry hop notes.

5.2% ABV

Hellenic Ale

Hellenic Ale is a very pale, easy drinking ale with a Greek twist and is the result of a collaboration between Hellenic Hotel and Two Birds Brewing. The use of mountain tea and Zeus hops, named after the God of sky and thunder, create a herbaceous and crisp beer, that will perfectly compliment the flavours of Greek food.

4.5% ABV

Autumn IPA

Bright and crisp, like an Autumn night, our Autumn IPA puts fruity hops front and centre.

Pale with a lean malt body and brewed with AU Vic Secret, US Simcoe and Amarillo hops. Autumn IPA is smooth and delicate with the characters of juicy mango puree and passionfruit notes, and a crunch like fallen leaves.

Made for warm days and balmy nights.

Autumn IPA is part of our ongoing Seasonal range and is available on tap until end of May.

Simple malt bill: Traditional Ale, Wheat malt, Vienna, Carahell Hops: Simcoe, Vic Secret, Amarillo

5.8% ABV, 60 BU

Hop Harvest

It’s a brewer’s favourite time of year as the bright, golden green hops are ready to be picked. This is a once-a-year opportunity to brew with fresh “wet hops”, straight from the farm. It’s the truest expression of hops and is a rare chance to enjoy the unique character of wet hops, in all their leafy glory. The aim is to preserve the freshness of the hops, so they were flown from Tasmania, across Bass Strait and promptly put to work at The Nest, for our third Hop Harvest brewery; a day that smelt of promise and resulted in a beer that tastes like new beginnings.

For Hop Harvest 2017, we’ve brewed an India Pale Lager with one of our brewery faves, Enigma hops. It’s full of juicy white peach, wine-like and grassy hop characters. It’s complex, intriguing and bright and showcases all that Enigma and the hop harvest have to offer.

Picture yourself sitting among the hop bines, surrounded by these little clusters of joy, enjoy!

6.2% ABV 50 BU

The Terminus – New World ESB

Brewed with our buddies at The Terminus Hotel for Good Beer Week, they requested an Extra Special Bitter (ESB) with Victorian ingredients, so we produced this New World style. Light copper coloured with soft caramel malt notes and a gentle sweetness from the Joe White malt from country Vic. It was fermented with an English ale yeast to showcase all of the esters – berry, rose and banana.

The Ella, Topaz hops from near Bright, contribute pineapple and apricot and a smooth, cleansing bitterness.

Surprisingly refreshing and reminiscent of sport, gardens, coffee and bars that don’t close at 1am.

ABV: 5.4%

Netherworld – The Minotaur Salty Grapefruit Wheat Ale

Like the mythical Minotaur is half man, half bull, this beer is half Wheat beer, half salty sour Gose. Brewed with 2 types of wheat, a healthy dose of acidulated malt and an acid producing yeast strain, for a slightly tart finish. Salt was added to contribute fullness to the palate and give the beer a moreishness.

For an extra twist, we added grapefruit peel with NZ Riwaka and US Chinook hops, known for their citrus characters.

The Minotaur is hazy, pale and refreshing with subtle hints of grapefruit and a light briny-ness. If you’re a sucker for a margarita, try it with a shot of tequila.

Brewed with our mates at Netherworld in Brisbane, The Minotaur is the unnatural offspring of a female owned brewery and a beast of a venue.

4.1% ABV

Slayer

Dragonfruit Slayer is a kettle sour brewed with pink fleshed dragonfruit, it was soured with lactic acid bacteria in the kettle, then fermented with an ale yeast and dry-hopped. Slayer is tart, refreshing and pours with a light pink head. We used Ale, Wheat, Vienna and Oats for a clean, yet round mouthfeel. AU Cascade, US Amarillo & US Mosaic hops give a distinct fruitiness, while the dragonfruit adds juicy red berry notes. Slayer is here to slay for a limited time only.

5.0% ABV
