Pipe Dreams Coastal Lager is inspired by the traditional European style, so it has a nice light colour with traditional noble hop aromas and a light citrus zest over the top. It’s quite a delicate beer, but complex at the same time. There’s a little bit of malt sweetness to balance it out with a crisp, refreshing bitterness which is key to this beer style.
From humble beginnings, Gage Roads has grown to become one of the country’s leading independent breweries. Back in the early 2000’s, two brothers and a couple of mates dreamt of starting a brewery, with nothing more than an idea and a personal credit card. Inspired by their love of good beer and the ocean, Gage Roads took its name from the strip of ocean that separates Fremantle and Rottnest. Setting up shop inside an old factory near Fremantle, the original brewery was created with second-hand equipment and a lot of hard work. While that’s now been transformed into a world-class brewery, founder John Hoedemaker says the memories of the early days remain strong.
