Hazy IPA

Juicy, tropical, lush 6.0%

Did someone say 11 out of 10? We had one aim with this new release: to make the best hazy IPA possible. No frills, no twists, just a damn good beer. And with our November release, we’ve delivered just that. A hazy New York style NEIPA, inspired by the modern Hazy IPA’s of Brooklyn, New York, where EVERYTHING gets dialled up to 11. Plenty of hops, plenty of juiciness, plenty of personality, and plenty of oomph. 


Isolation Sour Ale 5.4%

This year has been full of haze and uncertainty, so we thought you should at least enjoy your time at home while you go nowhere. A curiously aromatic sour ale, whirlpooled with Amarillo hops and dosed heavily with mango and passionfruit for its secondary fermentation. Confused yet? Good. Get used to it. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s how to be resilient. Drink fresh and stay safe.


Pear & Ginger Hazy Sour Ale 5.3%

Just in time for the warm weather, this fruited sour beer breathes new life into the classic sour and salty German Gose style by cofermenting with a delectable combination of pears and ginger. With just a whisp of fleur de sel, the saltiness brings a whole new level of flavour, making this beer perfect for kicking back and relaxing.


Cherrywood Smoked Baltic Porter 5.9%

On a cold winter’s night, you need something to keep you warm. A heavy blanket, a fire going and a smooth dark beer is the perfect remedy and no dark beer is better for warming the insides than a classic Baltic Porter. Using smoked malts from American Cherrywood and Indigenous Australian Stringybark, combined with the classic dark malt flavours of chocolate and dark fruits, we’ve created a beer to keep you warm from head to toe.


Belgian Style Sour Red Ale 4.9%

Without rain, there would be no malt. Without yeast, there would be no beer. And without Shaya Rubinstein, there would be no Urban Alley. And so, with this sour red inspired by the timeless ales of southern Belgium, we pay tribute to the genius behind the brewery. This kettle soured delight has a beautiful balance of delicate fruit esters, beginning with an aroma of aged cherries, subtle spicy notes and finishing with a dry, oaky mouthfeel from American oak staves. Fermented cool with Belgian Ardennes yeast, this carmine beauty will leave you salivating for more.

Sustainably Crafted

It’s no secret that we love our craft beer here in Melbourne. Whether you’re north-side, south-side or somewhere in between, a refreshing beer is never far away. With our roots planted firmly in the thick of it all, our aim is to create consistent, quality beer while challenging current sustainability questions around beer production. Our brewers take pride in selecting only the finest ingredients from around the world and where possible sourcing directly from the farm. Production has been challenged at every level to ensure that processes adhere to strict quality and sustainability benchmarks. Come down to the brewery and check it out for yourself!

01. Grain

We source our malts from all over the world, with each recipe uniquely crafted using carefully selected ingredients to reflect the brewer’s interpretation of a particular beer style. Beers with more pronounced caramel, toffee and nutty notes typically have a fair amount of British malts, where cleaner styles might feature classic German-grown and malted grains.

02. Hops

The primary source of bitterness and pungent fruity aromas in your glass, hops are a critical portion of what’s in your glass. Like our malt selection, our brewers like to use a wide variety of hops from around the globe. American, Australian and New Zealand hops will typically be found in beers with pronounced stone fruit and melon aromas, while German and British hops provide a more subtle, floral, and spicy character.

03. Yeast

Innovations in brewing technology have enabled today’s brewers to have access to a wide variety of brewing yeast strains, in both dry and liquid form. Our brewers are able to recreate almost any contemporary – and historic – beer style by carefully selecting the right yeast strains and controlling fermentation conditions.

04. Water

Melbourne water is typically very clean with low levels of calcium and hardness. Soft water is great for brewing with – after a 3-stage filtration, our brewers only have to minimally tweak the balance of the source water to ensure the right amount of calcium and other critical minerals are in perfect balance for each product. Much of our operational water is also recaptured and reused for brewing with again – helping to lower our impact on our environment.

Holding It Together

Urban Alley was the first in Australia to use biodegradable six pack rings (E6PR). Made from spent grain which is not only a great alternative to plastic, but also edible to marine life, which is even better news for our oceans and environment.

Urban Alley is proud to be doing our part to create a sustainable future!
