BEER FOR EVERY PALATE, EVERY DAY

One of the best things about the rise of real beer is the return of small, local breweries. Here at McLeod's, 'small' and 'local' go hand-in-hand with quality and variety. It's evident in our medal-winning beers including a trophy for Traders Scotch Ale alongside our win as Champion Small Intl. Brewery at the 2019 Australian Intl. Beer Awards.


From our year-round range to our mixed fermentation and barrel-aged Smugglers Bay Collection, we make good beer for every palate, every day. Our fans are as diverse as our brews, so our beer is delicious and balanced whatever the style. Find out more about each one by clicking on the bottle or tap badge below.


Here's to enjoying our beer in your little slice of paradise!

Year-round

Well-crafted | Steady on

There’s a reason for the tried-and-true, perennial styles that make up the heart of our roster: they’re everyday beers that transcend the ‘everyday.’ Never plain, definitely balanced and always drinkable. You know quality when you taste it. Think of these as the 'core with more,' and you’ve hit the mark.

Seasonal Releases

Innovative | In Season

Is good beer ever out of season? Our collective, biased voice says, ‘No.’ Yet it does seem that while some months beg for crisp, chili pilsner, others seem to limp along without something bold, dark and decidedly imperial in a glass. We understand. Our seasonal range is a chance for our brewery team to flex their creative muscles and have a play. And who doesn’t like to play?

Smuggler's Bay Collection

Barrel-aged | Time Travelers

Our Smugglers Bay Collection answers the age-old question: what happens when good beer ages in good barrels? Add a thread of microflora or lactic acid bacteria to the mix (sometimes) and you start to understand these beers. Whether it’s our medal-winning Black Rye Sour Ale or Bourbon-barrel Aged Milk Stout, each is made with an eye on pushing boundaries whilst keeping drinkability at a maximum. These beers have been known to bring out the miserly in those who relish, collect and tuck away. We absolutely condone this behaviour.

802 Series

Unfiltered - Unapologetic

Our 802 Series of unfiltered IPAs gets its name from the telephone code of Vermont (aka the Green Mountain State), the U.S state where Head Brewer Jason Bathgate grew up. It's also the spot most point to as the incubator for modern American hazy IPAs. But our fresh, cloudy brews are more than imitators of the 'haze craze' or the rising New England-style.Each showcases different hops in a well-crafted unfiltered IPA. Grab a can, pint or flagon and remember, when you're 'in the 802,' #freshisbest.
