Fern Draught
Brewmasters comments


Stylistically, Fern Draught is classed as a New Zealand Draught which generally means that it is an ‘amber lager’.  Our Fern Draught is brewed using a lager yeast, it is medium bodied, with the caramel and biscuity notes deriving from the use of crystal and amber malts.

Fern Draught is easy drinking and quite a sessionable beer. At 4% ABV, Fern Draught is best enjoyed at 2 - 4°C.
