Year – Round Beers

Metalman Pale Ale

Pale Ale


 American style pale ale, dark gold in colour with a delicate white head. Citrus and floral aromas lead into hop flavours characterised by grapefruit and mandarin produced by American hops. A dry bitter finish makes this an eminently enjoyable and refreshing beer.

ABV : 4.3%

Available in : Keg, Cask, Can (woohoo!)


equinox bwheat lager badge metalmanEquinox


Sunshine in a glass! Equinox is a refreshing wheat lager designed with lazy sunny days in mind. Hazy bright yellow, it’s a smooth and refreshing beer with a light dry finish. Orange and lemon peel are added to the brew kettle for a burst of citrus, along with some ground coriander to give a hint of spice on the end – tantalizingly quaffable!

ABV : 4.5%

Available in : Keg, Cask & Now in Cans!


 HeatsinkHeat sink smoked porter

A delectable smoked porter made with lots of smoked German malt. Aromas of chocolate and coffee give way to the smoked character which is followed by a pleasant warmth on the finish from the Cayenne pepper we use in the kettle.

ABV : 5%

Available in : Keg, Cask & Now in Cans!



Time for some hoppy goodness! Who doesn’t crave a luscious malty body and a fruity citrus finish? Get stuck into this IPA and let the good times roll!

ABV : 6.5%

Available in : Keg, Cask & Cans!

ABV : 5%

Available in : Keg, Cask & Cans!

Blaager fonthead-01 hi res


“Never has so much Waterford been packed into such a small space!”, as a fan has noted about our Blaager cans! Lager brewed with Waterford blaas, a complex beer to tantalise the taste buds of both lager and non-lager fans!

ABV : 4.6%

Available in : Keg, Cask & Cans!

Zwickel fonthead-01


An unfiltered lager which we’ve tried to keep true to style by using Munich and Vienna malts which give bready notes and a deep golden hue. Deliciously smooth with some lovely floral hop aromas.

ABV : 5.3%

Available in : Keg, Cask & Cans!

OITNB laminate

Orange is the New Black

Italian sun dried orange peel is added to the conditioning stage of this dark beer to lend a delectably fragrant aroma and flavour. Notes of mandarin on the nose lead into a full body with a subtle orange finish, perfect for those dark winter nights.

ABV : 4.3%

Available in : Keg, Cask & Now in Cans!

AlternatorMetalman Alternator wheat beer


Hazy golden wheat beer with a punchy Belgian twist! Alternator is a light-to-medium bodied beer, lightly bittered, with a citrus finish from Cascade hops which is complemented by spicy flavours from coriander, pepper and a Belgian yeast.

ABV : 4.5%

Available in : Keg, Cask




Metalman Windjammer amber beer



A pale amber beer, hopped exclusively with lots of New Zealand varieties. An antipodean extravaganza, lightly carbonated with a soft bitterness from a combination of Southern Cross and Pacifica, leading into tropical fruit flavours of pineapple and mango, with the wonderful addition of grapes from Nelson Sauvin hops – a delightful spring beer!

ABV : 4.8%

Available in : Keg, Cask




Metalman sahara lagerSahara

Packed with speciality malts including Munich, Crystal and Amber, Sahara is a full-on lager that’s as dry as the desert that it’s named for. We added plenty of Czech Saaz hops that you might find in many more traditional lagers, then threw the rule book out the window with Summit from the US and Sorachi Ace from Japan. Think lager is boring and flavourless? Think again!

ABV : 6.0%

Available in :  Keg, Cask




Metalman Yerba Dark beer



Collaboration brew made with Hardknott in Cumbria. Collaboration brewing is such a fun experience, and this time it resulted in a dark beer made with black and chocolate malts, hopped with Pacific Jade and Bramling Cross, with a whack of south American maté tea which we sourced from our friends at Kingfisher Tea in Enniscorthy. A highly unusual beer, you’ll either love it or you’ll hate it!

ABV : 6.2%

Available in : Keg, Cask



Unite Pale Ale



A collaboration on a global scale! Unite was the brainchild of one of the Project Venus crew in the UK, who came up with an idea of a global collaboration brew to celebrate International Women’s Day. A base recipe was decided – 4% pale ale with a Cascade hop focus – and 72 breweries around the world let loose with their own interpretation. At Metalman, we added some Simcoe to the party and this delightful suppable beer came in with just the right balance of lemon, apricots and a gentlebitterness with a nice light malt body. This was an exclusive for IWCB in 2014, but who knows, it might make a reappearance next year!




Metalman Moonbeam Dark beerMoonbeam


Moonbeam is a dark beer with a light body, bursting with cocoa notes, and a devilishly hoppy character from lashings of Nugget and Pacific Gem in the kettle and the conditioner. Not that easy to fit into a given style, so make of it what you will – but we like it!

ABV :  5%

Available in :  Keg, Cask







Chameleon Range


A range rather than one particular beer, Chameleon is our vehicle for experimentation! When we want to try something a bit different, or a variation on a theme, we brand it under Chameleon. So far we’ve had ginger, wheat lager, and a smoked beer. Anything goes! Beers which have come under the Chameleon umbrella include:

Chameleon Garnet Red Ale



A session-strength malty red-ale with a serious dry finish. Garnet combines Bramling Cross hops from the UK with the rare Sorachi Ace hop from Japan for a truly unusual flavour, with notes of coconut and lemongrass.

ABV : 4.0%

Available in : Keg, Cask


Chameleon Solstice Light Wheat beer



A twist on Chameleon Equinox – same beer but made with our house ale yeast instead of lager yeast! With a softer, fruitier finish than equinox, it’s a fuller bodied beer without the dry ending, but just as pleasant on the palate!

ABV : 4.5%

Available in : Keg, Cask



Chameleon Smokescreen Dark beer



Love beer? Love bacon? Love hops? Love Smokescreen! A deliciously smooth dark beer made with plenty of hops along with beech-smoked malt from Germany. Deceptively light and easy to drink, but with a hop kick on the finish to play with that smokiness. A perfect accompaniment to that barbecue you’re planning in your head already!


Available in : Keg, Cask


BrauChameleon Braut Lager


A thirst-quenching lager with floral Czech Saaz and German Tettnang hops. We’ve tried a few different yeasts on this, the most recent being a Californian lager yeast adding extra fruitiness. Perfect for a lazy hour or two in your favourite pub or beer garden!

ABV : 4.5%

Available in : Keg, Cask





Chameleon Rubus Raspberry Beer



Raspberry blonde beer, brewed for the Waterford Harvest Festival 2014. A delightful blonde beer brewed with German hops to give a distinctly floral undertone. Plenty of raspberries added in the conditioner to lend a tart raspberry sweetness resulting in a very easy-to-drink beer. Would surely make an amazing ice-cream float…

ABV : 4.3%

Available in : Keg, Cask



Chameleon Ginger Blonde Beer



What starts out as a simple, sessionable blonde ale gets amped up and turned into a summer “zinger” when we add loads of freshly chopped root ginger to our brew kettle towards the end of the boil. Oh yes, we look forward to the smell in the brewery when this one’s on the brew schedule!

ABV : 4.5%

Available in : Keg, Cask
