The brewery’s flagship beer, Capital’s Coast Ale is designed with the beach, or perhaps drives towards it, in mind. Taking inspiration from the California Common style that originated in head brewer Wade Hurley’s homeland, Coast Ale is a sessionable and clean beer.
Brewed with European noble hop varieties Saaz and Hallertau, as well as New Zealand’s Dr Rudi, the beer blends an underlying spiciness with light pine with some floral notes. There’s a hint of rich sweetness from the malt body but balanced by a light bitterness and clean finish more reminiscent of a classic European lager.
