Brewer Direct - Rutherglen Brewing Co

Hi Nigel and Murray here again! Welcome back to Brewer Direct and our second launch, We are heading south to Rutherglen where the Rutherglen Brewing Co is located.  It was another hard decision, but we have hand picked the following beers based on their flavour profile and because they were some of the freshest beers we could get. ENJOY!


Wallaces Pilsner  ABV: 5%

A Bohemian Pilsner with rounded malt character, biscuity and toasty.  Prominent use of traditional Czech Saaz hops to create a spicy/herbal profile. Elevated bitterness helps to balance the malt, leaving this Pilsner crisp and refreshing.


Seven Star Pale Ale  ABV: 5% 

Style: American Pale Ale - Fresh and aromatic style. A blend of American and Australian hops highlights a balance of citrus and tropical fruits. Backed by a toasted malt profile, this pale ale finishes clean and dry with a subtle lingering bitterness.


Saison  ABV: 5.7%

One of our seasonal beers that is put out in spring and summer. A traditional Saison with a Belgium Yeast strain, citrusy flavours and a spicy profile which makes this beer very approachable beer. Goes great with food.


Bandicoot Amber Ale  ABV: 5.0%

An American style Amber Ale with a generous hop profile using centennial and cascade hops all the way. this beer is nicely balanced with a good amount of caramel notes and is not over the top so brings you a nice easy drinking beer to enjoy.


Turon Widow IPA  ABV: 6.2%

Style: American IPA - Big hop profile! Exclusive use of classic American hops provides bursts of grapefruit, pine and resin. With a generous malt backbone, this IPA finishes clean, dry and bitter


Durham House Porter  ABV: 6.2%

Rich chocolate with smoked malts and triple A grade vanilla bean using lactose instead of dextrose gives this beer a residual sweetness. Very well balanced and layered beer.
