Styles change with the season and the mood. Below are some of the regulars:

Blackwood Summer Ale:

Brewed as a pale ale with moderate alcohol content, Summer Ale is particularly well suited for enjoyment in warmer months. Crisp aromatic hops add an attractive citrus aroma and a long satisfying back palate finish. Summer Ale is a full flavoured alternative to full strength beers. (Mid Strength)

Blackwood Stout Porter:

A robust and full flavoured beer, characterised by roasted coffee and chocolate flavours. Malty sweetness is characteristic of this milk stout style. Complex, yet balanced and well structured with a creamy finish producing an interesting and intriguing beer. (Full Strength)

Gold Medal – Australian International Beer Awards 2012

Trophy – International Champion Stout 2009, Australian International Beer Awards

Trophy – Best West Australian Beer 2007, Perth Royal Beer Show

4 x Gold Medals  / 1 x Silver Medal / 4 x Bronze Medals

Blackwood Special Bitter:

A deep copper coloured beer with a fruity aroma and medium to high bitterness balanced by malty sweetness.Mild carbonation produces
lightness on the palate while retaining depth of character. Traditional noble hops are the defining character of this popular English Ale. (Full Strength)

1 x Gold Medal / 2 x Silver Medals / 3 x Bronze Medals

Blackwood Irish Red Ale:

The brewing of Red Ales in Ireland preceded the use of hops in beer and this is reflected in the style of our Irish Red Ale. True to its name and tradition it has a reddish-copper hue and is medium bodied with little bitter hop influence, allowing  the rich malt sweetness to the fore. (Full Strength)

2 x Silver Medals /5 Bronze Medals

Blackwood Nut Brown Ale:

A medium bodied walnut coloured beer with a light brown head, the term Nut Brown Ale is reflected in both the colour and the flavour of this classic beer style. A balance of pale, amber and roasted malts combined with noble hops produces an ale with a distinct ‘nutty’ character. (Full Strength)

Other seasonal brews include Blackwood Wheat Beer, Belgian Whitbier, All Australian Pale Ale and a traditional German Rauchbier.
