Capital Brewing Co Spring Board Ale

Capital Springboard Summer Ale and warm days are a match made in heaven. Containing a carefully crafted combination of orange, mandarin, honey and coriander seed, this Summer Ale has a light fruity aroma and hazy golden colour.

Pink Lady Apple Cider

The Apple Thief is a premium alcoholic cider created from freshly crushed snow-country apples from Batlow. A deliciously sweet sensation with refreshingly tart flavour and a clean medium to sweet finish, the Pink Lady Cider is worth stealing a taste of.

Stone & Wood Pacific Ale

Light on the palate, strong on the passionfruit and tropical flavours, this beer is by far our most popular offering. If you’re yet to try it, you won’t be disappointed. It’s an easy, sessionable beer, and it embodies everything we love about the Northern Rivers.

Endeavour Red Ale

Brewed to warm you up during the cooler months, the 2018 recipe has dialled back the malt character just a touch, resulting in lighter hue and slightly less sweetness. The malty character is still there up front, followed by a slight resinous bitterness from Vic Secret coming through towards the back, stripping that malty sweetness and allowing the earthy spice of the Helga dry hop to shine.

Mountain Goat Steam Ale

Steam Ale is a brilliant introduction to the world of craft or for those seeking a crisp, seasonable beer, fresh and full of fruity and tropical characters.

Fixation IPA

This is a style of beer that has been around for 150 years in one form or another. It wasn't until craft brewers started using new world hops that the style really established itself as a force for good in the flavourful beer world. Using all American hops Fixation have created a balanced, super clean, tasty American IPA.

Our Argentine wood-fired grill was imported from Northern California. It is designed to cook mouth-watering meats over red-hot coals. Hopscotch uses a mixture of iron bark and red gum to impart a light smoke flavour to the meals.

The wood-fired Argentine Grill is over 700kg of steel, and was imported from California. Using Yellow Box and Ironbark to fuel the fires, the mouth watering meats are cooked over red-hot coals to impart the lightly smoked flavours found in our meals.

Using the same mixture of wood for our Spit Roast Pit, full pigs are prepared and roasted to succulent perfection and are available for functions and parties. Contact us below and speak to our staff for more information.
