Crazy Diamond wins Gold

Triggerfish Brewing’s Crazy Diamond walked away with the gold medal in the Belgian Ale category at the 2018 Craft Brewers Powwow Awards.



American Pale Ale

A huge hop aroma characterizes this refreshing pale ale. Ocean Potion is our flagship beer. It is a classic American Pale Ale that pours pure gold with a solid lasting head that laces beautifully. Its trademark is the huge tropical fruit and citrusy aroma. This hoppy component is underpinned by a solid yet complex malt base. The first surprise is that this beer, after the aroma is all beer. Its light bodied and finishes surprisingly bitter. Ocean Potion pairs well with aromatic dishes like Boboti, Thai and Indian curries.



American Amber Ale

Roman Red is a beautifully balanced, medium bodied amber ale. It pours a clear African Sunset red with a dense off white head. The citrus and pine resin hop aroma typically associated with Pacific North Western hop varieties strikes a balance with caramel, raisins and a hint of smokiness from the darker crystal malts. Residual sweetness from the malt counters the hop bitterness. The beer finishes in a lingering mix of caramel and bitterness.



IPA (India Pale Ale)

Hammerhead is a well-balanced IPA with a distinct hop character that imparts mild citrus and pine aromas and significant bitterness, balanced with a solid malt backbone. It is continually hopped like Dogfish Head’s IPA’s which establishes a deep seated solid hop character in all aspects of this beer. Toffee and caramel are characteristic of the malts used in HammerHead. The working name on this beer was Hammer(ed) (Hop)Head and probably describes it well.


Welcome to Triggerfish Brewing

Triggerfish Brewing is a Somerset West based craft brewery focusing on brewing a wide range of exceptional craft beer. Our product range consists of 9 staple beers and a 16 seasonal and one off “wild” beers to date. “Wild” beers refer to beers with flavours that most local beer drinkers have never experienced. We’re passionate about local ingredients and are constantly working on increasing the local content of some of our beers to create some distinct local styles that could be widely recognized if successful. Brewing a craft beer in the heart of the wine region gives us access to great used barrels. We’ve been barrel ageing and experimenting with beer/wine hybrids since 2012. We thrive on the challenge of innovation and regularly brew collaborations with other craft breweries.
