The latest Sleep When You’re Dead series instalment is here! But compared to previous releases, everything isn’t quite as it seems this time around.

Our Sleep When You're Dead series will always be about showcasing fresh & intensely hop flavoured brews. Traditionally we’ve found IPA styles to best capture these characteristics, although as time passes, trends and tastes evolve, and we’ve found that IPA’s aren’t the only answer to a heavy hop hitting brew!

What if we told you that a big bold lager can also show off the freshest and most exciting hop flavours?

Introducing the Sleep When You’re Dead Imperial Lager. Tipping the scales at a bold 8% ABV, this unique brew is far removed from your everyday mass produced macro lager.

A higher ABV hop forward Pilsner that uses Motueka and Riwaka hops to bring loads of tropical fruit, zesty lime and passionfruit notes to a bright, refreshing Pilsner base. Pouring pale gold with brilliant clarity, this is no ordinary Pils. Its dry, bitter and hoppy as all get out. Brewed to be a perfect accompaniment to our warm summer climate.
