Kaiju Punch

Kaiju Punch

Kaiju Punch is our 2017 Newcastle Beer Fest entry. When asked to brew an IPA for Battle of the Beers we, predictably, went a bit mental. Kaiju Punch is a fighty 5.3% IPA brewed with more hops than you shake a stick at. Drowning in Mosaic and Citra hops and backed-up with only the palest malt, it's going to pack a serious wallop. Kaiju Punch is unfined and unfiltered.

Black Magic

Black Magic

Harvest

Christmas 2016: It's been a weird year that calls for a weird Christmas beer. When everyone else zigged, we zagged, moving away from the traditional dark beers of winter, we've gone off the reservation and made a saison.

Future Sailor

Future Sailor

OUT OF STOCK

We're always looking forward at Errant and this beer is no exception. A wheat beer is a style we've always wanted to try, and it wouldn't be an Errant beer if we didn't mix it up with something special.

Introducing Future Sailor. Using special wheat yeast to give the style it's distinctive clove taste and pacifica hop and juniper berries to balance it with a botanical citrus finish; Future Sailor will be as crisp as the spirit juniper inspires.

We knew that when it came to juniper, we had to go to the one place in Newcastle that knew gin, Pleased to Meet You. Future Sailor is a proud collaboration brew that brings together the best of both worlds, with surprising results.
