Tonic-Ale-400-300Way back in the early 1900’s, Pikes Tonic Ale was introduced to the S.A. market by our old family brewing company H. Pike & Co. It became one of S.A.’s most well known beverages . marketed as “a healthy non-intoxicant drink” and was no doubt a favourite of the ‘temperance set’ of the day!  We recently acquired a very old original, hand written recipe for the ‘old’ Pikes Tonic Ale and thought… “Why not?!” And so, 50 years since it was last brewed, we have reworked and reinvented the old family recipe at our brand new craft brewery here in the beautiful Clare Valley of South Australia. The result will surprise you… A very light alcohol beer (2.3% ABV) with flavour!! Think fresh orange and lemon peel, fresh coriander and ginger and a lightly bittered finish from the specially imported South American cinchona bark to give it a ‘tonic’ hit. Seriously refreshing on it’s own or as a mixer with your favourite gin. Pikes ‘New’ Tonic Ale will be be released from July 1st 2015.
