  • Carlton Draught

    Carlton Draught is a traditional, full-strength lager that is crisp on the mid-palate with a good malt character and smooth full-bodied flavour. Clean hop bitterness gives the brew a slightly dry finish.

  • Pure Blonde

    Pure Blonde is a light, crisp, aromatic lager that delivers a superior taste. It has been specially brewed longer to produce a beer that is low in carbohydrates.

  • Crown Lager

    Crown Lager is Australia's premium lager beer. It has a creamy fruitiness with a rich, malty mid-palate, bal­anced with the crisp, clean finish of Pride of Ringwood hops. Brewed from the finest malt and hops, using CUB's original and unique strain of brewing yeast.

  • Crown Golden Ale

    At Crown we are committed to using the finest Australian ingredients. Our brew masters have created a refreshing ‘Australian-style’ ale with fruit aromas and a sweet maltiness: brewed with Crown’s signature highest grade Australian barley (CA1) & iconic Australian hop variety, Galaxy®.

  • Victoria Bitter

    Victoria Bitter (VB) has long been Australia’s favourite beer, and is specially brewed to deliver full flavour when ice cold, making it the ideal beer for the Australian climate.

  • Carlton Mid

    The use of traditional bittering hops and the finest hop extracts combine to give this beer its delightful hop character. The muted malt flavours in this midstrength beer give it perfect balance and drinkability.

  • Carlton Dry

    The exceptional Dry finish has been achieved through a special brewing process, removing sugars over an extended period of time, creating a remarkably smooth, crisp, dry finish with lower carbohydrates than other full strength beers.
