Mid-Strength, Giddy Up!
Brewed specifically for the locally renowned annual Bong Bong Picnic Races in Kangaloon, and to honour the event’s efforts to maintain civility by insisting on mid-strength beer. SHBC decided that “if it has to be mid-strength, let’s make it a good one…one with flavour.” A generous amount of Vienna malt and restraint with late kettle hops make this one a winner. Get on! Back it in!
AMERICAN PALE ALE
Bong Bong Picnic Ale
Drink it with: Fish & Chips, Asian, Shellfish
OG 1.046 | ABV: 5.0% | IBU: 20 | EBC: 10
A clean, crisp and refreshing genuine lager with historic roots in Central Europe. At Southern Highlands Brewing we firmly believe that beer needs to be sessionable, and Firkin Helles is no exception. Our pale lager packs a firm yet neutral bitterness on top of continental pilsner malts and signature German hops.
So what does Firkin Helles mean? It means prost, proost, salud, skål, santé, na zdraví and bottoms up, my friend!
Drink it with: Red Meat, Pork, Cheddar, BBQ, Duck
OG 1.046 | ABV: 4.5% | IBU: 38 | EBC: 12
Our first Pale Ale. The Original is a “Traditional” American Pale Ale using some of the original hops that pioneered the craft beer movement in the USA in the late 70’s. Enjoy grapefruit bitterness upfront followed by tropical stone fruits that round out the flavour. Served under medium carbonation. Many breweries mess with the APA. Not us!
This malty gem combines the best of the Celtic region with its beautiful malts and hops. We have teamed it up with an old English yeast to throw flavours of raisin, roast and hints of nutmeg creating a cracking ale with the deep red hue that charred malt brings to beer. Delivered by hand pump this ale is low in carbonation and smooth.
Drink it with: Curry, Apple Tart, Blue Cheese, Chilli

One for the beer lovers
Like all Tighthead Props, an IPA is big, strong, reliable and bold but still goes down easily. Our IPA is brewed with Australian base malts and one speciality. Hopped up with heavy hitters like Warrior and Chinook, its still pretty simple (like most Tightheads!)
This Porter is short and dark, but never underestimate the understated. It is very handsome. Let the colour lead you into the forest of dark chocolate and burnt toffee imbued in the roast malt. Both of SHB’s founders, Camo and Ben, lost their fathers to brain cancer so Southern Highlands Brewing Co donates a $1 per every litre sold to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.
Served on a stout tap, low carbonation and a tight velvet head.
A collaboration beer made with all Southern Highlands ingredients. Barley grown at Joadja Distillery and hops grown at Southern Highlands Brewing’s own hop yard. A house strain of yeast and local water make this beer truly Southern Highlands. The blend of Chinook, Cascade and Victoria hops throw tropical fruit flavours and aromas.
Fresh, nutty malt with hints of caramel give our golden ale a solid backbone to underpin the delicious hop combination. Predominant aroma and flavours of fresh passionfruit and pineapple, with complexity and depth.
