Part of our dessert style sour beer range. Brewed with lactose sugar and vanilla that sweetens the boysenberry tartness.


Raspberry Ripple, Ice Cream Sour

A big, juicy, hazy, IPA. Brewed with mango, passion-fruit, pineapple, and a literal bucket load of Mosaic and Citra hops.

The Quad Irish Milk Stout

ABV 4% 

A roasty toasty traditional Irish Stout, sweetened with milk sugar. The Quad has full body and a creamy taste. At 4% it’s an easy and comforting drink on a cold winter’s day.


Tropicana Party Hazy IPA

ABV 7.8%

A triple hopped hazy IPA. Brewed with mango, Danali and Mosaic Hops.


Candy Floss Pale Ale

ABV 4.8%

Lightly inspired by our pillowy pink childhood favourite. This beer is brewed with El Dorado hops to give a subtle sugar like aroma and flavour, with just a touch of raspberry.

Our team is small but we're supported by a big community.

Owned and operated by George Duncan and Wai Familton, Duncan’s is the result of a 22,000 km road trip circumnavigating the USA, where they drank their way through a multitude of sessionable and sometimes questionable beer offerings. Clearly, a beer obsession was born.
