CURRENTLY POURING 12 FROTH BEERS OUT OF THE FOLLOWING ARSENAL:
Originating from Cologne, Germany, Kölsch is one of the lightest ales. Froth Craft Brewery’s Koa Kölsch adheres to its European heritage using German Cologne malt as the primary grain base and the German hop Tettnang delivering the citrus taste and aroma. It’s fermented with White Labs’ Kölsch yeast to ensure the fruity esters that are infamous with this style of ale. This brew is a perfect introduction into the artisan beer world. Light, clean and crisp, Koa Kölsch drinks like a lager to quench that thirst after an epic day on the Ningaloo. One of Froth’s most popular beers.
Malt: Cologne, Wheat, Carapils, Acidulated
Hops: East Kent Golding, Tettnang
Yeast: White Labs – 029
Taste: Light – Mid bodied beer, refreshing ale with fruity esters and citrus hop aroma / flavour
Froth’s first lager, the Philsner, is brewed to keep the masses of lager drinkers happy for an easy drinking, familiar styled beer. Lagers use a different strain of yeast that ferments at a lower temperature (and results in a longer fermentation time than ales - “lagern” in German means “to store”) to produce clean, clear, crisp beers. The Philsner is brewed with Cologne and Pilsner malts from Germany and flavoured with Perle, Saaz and Hallertau hops. The Philsner is housed in our bright tanks for 4 – 6 weeks to allow for the beer to settle and clarify for a clean, crisp, easy drinking sessionable beer. One of Froth’s most popular beers.
Malt: Cologne, Pilsner, Wheat, Carapils, Acidulated
Hops: Perle, Saaz & Hallertau
Taste: Light bodied, well carbonated easy drinking lager. Slight sweetness balanced with the citrus notes from the Hallertau and Earthy aroma from the Saaz hop. THE crowd pleaser.
Two Palms Tropical Golden Ale
Named after the two palm trees that stand alongside Froth’s brewery, this tropical golden ale is a refreshing, smashable mid strength ale made for the warmer Exmouth weather. Brewed with Maris Otter malt from England and then heavily dry hopped (when the beer is in the fermenter) with El Dorado and Calypso hops - this ale is a light, crisp ale. With pineapple and melon overtones finished with a light bitterness: this is a perfect thirst quenching sessionable beer.
Malt: Maris Otter, Wheat, Acidulated
Hops: El Dorado, Calypso
Taste: With slight haze from dry hopping plus the fruity aroma and flavour from American hops El Dorado and Calypso. Brewed to be a light bodied, mid strength ale that is refreshing and sessionable. A crowd pleaser.
Strewth Summer Ale
With the hot summer weather we must endure living on the North West cape, Froth’s Strewth Summer Ale is a tropical ale that quenches the thirst after an epic day on the Ningaloo Reef. Strewth Summer Ale is a light bodied, refreshing ale that uses only Bintani Fortnight Hops, which is a unique blend of 5 different American Hops. With a slight bitterness to quench your thirst, Strewth’s hopped additions are primarily in the whirlpool and dry hopping to allow the aromatic attributes of pineapple, pear and citrus stand-alone.
Malt: Pale Ale, Caramalt, Carapils, Acidulated
Hops: Bintani Fortnight
Taste: Light-bodied ale, with smooth fruity (pineapple, pear and citrus) hop aroma and flavours. Easy drinking, thirst quenching ale. A crowd pleaser.
Petey’s Wheaty Weissbier
After years of Pete begging the head brewer to brew a wheat beer, the time has finally come for its inaugural release. Quite possibly the world’s first frack free, fregan, salty dreaded, oily bearded, free range, Kermit-the-frog-living-in-a-bus-at-the-Lighthouse-with-a-view German wheat beer. If you know Pete, you’ll jump on a humpback whale pushcart and come down to Froth and try our new refreshing Hefeweizen. NOTE: the yeast provides more flavour than the wheat.
Malt: Wheat, Pilsner, Carapils, Acidulated
Hops: Perle, Hallertau
Yeast: Munich Classic
Taste: This ‘Weissbier’ is brewed to be light and refreshing to be enjoyed on hot summer days. With a slight banana aroma from the German Munich yeast esters and citrus flavour from the hallertau hops, this wheat ale is a very approachable, thirst quenching, lip smacking, give-me-another-one-please-barkeep beer.
Out of Saison
Saisons originate from the French speaking area of Wallonia, Belgium, where the beer style was traditionally brewed in the cooler season in their farmhouses. Saisonniers were the seasonal farm workers that boasted the perk of enjoying the variety of different Saison beer styles whilst working throughout the summer. Often brewed with open fermentation, wild yeast was cultivated and fermented at higher temperatures which allowed the yeast’s spicy, fruity flavour and aroma to be the centrepiece of this beer style.
Froth Craft Brewery's “Out of Saison” replicates the time honoured traditional Saison recipe using primarily Pilsner Malt with a strong backbone of Wheat Malt. This highly attenuating yeast strain thrives in higher fermentation temperatures. Great option for non-beer drinkers, or wine/sparkling fans.
Malt: Pilsner, Vienna, Wheat, Acidulated
Hops: Perle, Styrian Golding
Yeast: Labelle Saison
Taste: esters provide strong flavours such as spice, fruit and sourness. Naturally a highly carbonated beer style, “Out of Saison” has champagne-like aspects leaving your mouth dry and refreshed. Styrian Golding and Perle hop varieties are added simply for slight bittering and floral elements, allowing the yeast’s flavor profile to be at the forefront.
Little Phete Amber Ale
Malt, Malt and more Malt!! This Amber Ale celebrates the grain. To reach our goal of brewing a mid strength beer packed with flavour and body, we used a variety of specialty grains that together, could bring to life the magnificence of malt. Little Phete Amber Ale’s malt base highlights the biscuit, nut and toast tastes, brewed to shimmer pindan red like the Pilbara’s sun scorched earth. Centennial and Williamette hops were used to balance out the sweetness of the malt ensuring a refreshing, full-bodied mid strength craft beer.
Malt: Maris Otter, Caramber, Cararoma, Amber, Med. Crystal, Carapils
Hops: Williamette, Centennial
Taste: Malt forward mid strength beer. The malt backbone come from the higher percentage of specialty malts that provide depth and rich flavours of biscuit, toast and caramel in harmony. Lightly hopped to balance out the malt sweetness, Williamette and Centennial hops leave the palate refreshed.
Nor’Esther Pale Ale
Named after a late friend, this classic Pale Ale pays homage to Exmouth’s Australian and American heritage. The Nor’Esther Pale Ale grain base uses Australian Pale Ale malt and the flavor is driven by four iconic American Hops; Cascade, Amarillo, Simcoe and Citra. This well-balanced, medium bodied pale ale has the vibrant fruity aroma of stone fruit and melon while being backed by a clean bitterness to leave your palate refreshed and wanting more. This Exmouth classic has proven to battle with the Philsner to be the favourite from our Frothers and Frothettes!!
Malt: Pale Ale, Wheat, Rye, Med. Crystal, Caramalt, Carapils, Acidulated
Hops: Cascada, Amarillo, Simcoe, Citra
Taste: This well-balanced American styled Pale Ale is medium bodied ale that is flavoured with fruity American Hops. These hops provide a smooth bitterness and an aromatic fruity aroma that has proven to be one of our favorites!! Good balance of fruity and bitter hops that smoothly leave your palate on a lingering bitterness.
Wedged between a Pale Ale and an I.P.A, X.P.A’s are hop driven ales that boast the fruity, aromatic nature of the hop forward revolution. Froth’s Hopmouth X.P.A is just that, a light malt base where the late addition of hops will drive the aromatic flavours to the forefront. With a thirst quenching bitterness and fruity aroma, this beer is one for the hop lovers that want to enjoy an afternoon session and not compromise on flavour.
Malt: Pale Ale, Carahell, Med. Crystal, Carapils, Rye
Hops: Mosaic, Simcoe, Chinook, Amarillo, Citra
Taste: Fruity & candied aromas and flavour. Clean bitterness. Very refreshing, balanced, hop-forward beer that has become a signature brew.
You’re Driving IPA
This beer isn’t for the faint of heart. Inspired by the I.P.A renaissance in North America, You’re Driving is a hop lover’s dream. Brewed with a higher alcohol percentage for a perceived sweetness that seamlessly balances out the bittering hops. Finally, during the end of the brewing process, we heavily hop with Columbus, Chinook, Centennial, Simcoe and Cascade AND then dry hop again during active fermentation to really drive the aromatic flavours from these bold hop varieties. If you’re drinking… then someone else is driving!
Malt: Pale Ale, Rye, Wheat, Carahell, Med. Crystal, Carared
Hops: Simcoe, Columbus, Chinook, Centennial, Cascade
Taste: Dank, Piney, Resinous, Sticky, Pineapple. Full of hop flavour with a slight alcohol sweetness to balance the smooth, full -bodied bitterness.
I.R.A - Irish Red Ale
The I.R.A Irish Red Ale is brewed annually here at Froth to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Adhering to the style, IRA is a malt forward ale where the biscuit, caramel, toast flavours are brewed to be prominent. Balanced with the malt sweetness is a solid hop bitterness. Traditionally, Irish Red Ales are brewed with a touch of Roast Barley that provides a “red” coloration that this style is named after. Allowing the beer to warm slightly will allow the malt flavour and body to come through - perfect for Mid March Exmouth weather. As the beer loses carbonation, the malt aroma will also become more apparent.
Malt: Pale Ale, Med. Crystal, Caramber, Carared, Caramalt, Roast Barley
Hops: East Kent Golding, Williamette
Taste: This malt forward ale is originally from Ireland where they are famous for stouts and malt driven ales. Brewed only for St. Patrick’s Day, our seasonal I.R.A pays homage to the time honoured style and is well balanced between the malt sweetness and the hop bitterness.
Gimme M.O. Stout
Froth’s winter seasonal, Gimme MO’ Stout, is a full-bodied Mocha Oatmeal Stout. Brewed with Organic Cacao powder and Port City Roaster’s Early Bird espresso added late to the boil, this gem is a warm familiar embrace on a cold winter’s evening. Made with British Maris Otter Ale Malt in addition to specialty malts such as: carafa I, crystal, chocolate and a whole lot of rolled oats. With Columbus and Cascade hops to balance out the malt, and topped off with a creamy silk oatmeal head, Gimme MO’ Stout is a craft beer lover’s delight and a flavour packed winter seasonal not to be missed.
Malt: Maris Otter, Oatmeal, Carafa I, Med. Crystal, Chocolate, Roasted Barley
Hops: Columbus, Cascade, Centennial
Adjuncts: Port City Roasters Expresso, Organic Cacao
Taste: The initial coffee aroma is the start of a smooth-as-silk flavour train of biscuit, roast hazelnut and dark chocolate that lingers on the taste buds and warms the cockels.
