SixTwelve Brewing are the new kids on the craft beer block, currently establishing themselves in the North Eastern suburbs of Adelaide. We are beer enthusiasts with a passion, some might even say, obsession, for craft beer. After years and years of home brewing and fine tuning recipes, we’re finally taking the next step!
Our head brewer, Brad, follows his curiosity with new flavours and perfecting his technique by drawing on life experiences and discoveries throughout his brewing career. Make no mistake, he’s a numbers man so when it comes to the science of it all, he is the ultimate perfectionist.
Leading up the team, who we like to refer to as the Chief of War & Finance, is Alle. After nearly 15 years in the corporate world, an unexpected change in circumstance in early 2020 has given her the opportunity to be not only her own boss, but Brad’s as well! All jokes aside, Brad and Alle make the ultimate combo of ambitious dreamer and grounded realist with a serious appreciation of stainless steel.
Why SixTwelve you ask? Well, our main man Brad is 7foot tall! Yep, that’s 6foot 12inches of brewing genius and he can guarantee you, the weather “up there” is much the same as what you experience “down there”.
We’d love you to “size us up” and hope you enjoy our brews as much as we do!
Stretch Session Ale – 3.9%
An easy drinking ale with a beautiful tropical fruit nose that carries over into the taste. With its light mouthfeel, this beer is full of flavour and perfect for a session. Find that hint of citrus coming through from the yeast, ready to enjoy on a hot day…or any day really!
Tiny Raspberry Gose – 3.5%
A fruited, entry level sour with a beautiful pink hue. You cannot miss the raspberry on the nose and initial taste, that evolves into salt and coriander seed giving it a nice tart finish. A very inoffensive and approachable sour making it an instant hit in summer.
Beanstalk American Pale Ale – 4.5%
A beautiful American style Pale Ale with hints of floral, tropical fruit, pine and resin combined with a bready flavour and just a smidge of caramel to round it all out. The balance between the hop flavours and malt profile, makes this a definite crowd pleaser.
Goliath New England IPA – 6.6%
Lovingly referred to as our “breakfast juice”, teeming with ripe tropical fruit that you can smell a mile away from the glass. Don’t forget the new yeast that throws some apricot in the mix, it’s a pleasure to drink and smell. A classic NEIPA soft, pillowy mouthfeel coupled with the opaque nature of the beer, it’s well worth sinking your teeth into!
Big Fella Red Rye IPA – 5.9%
This big boy packs a punch! Aromas of caramel and toffee mixed with dank bitterness and citrus flavours from the American hops. This taste mixing nicely with the rye spiciness, makes for a beautiful malt-driven IPA. The big hops also give some nice citrus and pine notes to round out this beer. Giving a lovely red hue, this beer is definitely a favourite for us!
Lurch West Coast IPA – 6.6%
This is the OG IPA. Brilliant pine, resin and citrus aroma coupled with a nice bready malt and a touch of honey all the way through. With a lingering bitterness on the back end this beer takes you back to the original West Coast IPA style.
Lanky Stout – 5.0%
Filled to the brim with beautiful dark chocolate and coffee notes. A light creamy mouthfeel that dries out on the palate right at the end bringing you back for a second sip. The English hops used bring in some earthy grounding and a subtle spice flavour that rounds out this beer nicely.
Yeti Amber Ale – 3.5%
A malt forward English style beer with notes of toffee and biscuit hitting your palette early. Followed by some dark fruits rounding out the beer as a great easy drinker in the cooler months.
The Barun Coffee Porter – 4.0%
A smooth coffee forward beer with subtle hints of chocolate set with lower carbonation to help give a creamy texture & light mouth feel.
