The Bird

A light-malt, thirst quenching, session lager with fruity, earthy notes and a light bitter finish.

Like Durban, The Bird is easy as sun, surf and seagulls, with a twist of screw you. This light, refined lager is named after one of its makers, and after the way it gives commercial lager the finger when it comes to colour, flavour and taste.

Playing tribute to the light lagers popular in German craft breweries, The Bird Lager uses a classic cold fermenting lager yeast during fermentation. The beer is then left to clear and mature (lager) at around one to five degrees Celsius for up to six weeks.

The Punk Rocker

A full-mouthed, light bodied English pale ale with a clear, rich dark copper colour.

Poison City Brewing’s second craft beer, The Punk Rocker is an English Pale Ale that plays tribute to the nonconformist spirit of punk rock. Anti-establishment, yeah, we Durbanites totally get that. And while we beat the poms to BREXIT and kicked them out of our province a long time ago, we’ll keep the inspiration for their ale, and their punk music legacy, and make it Durban born and bred.

The Punk Rocker is malt driven, with an enjoyable, medium-dry finish, and its lower-alcohol content makes it a great session ale. Although hop bitterness is low (30 IBU), the dark malt additions pleasantly accentuate the overall bitterness.

The Kiff

A refreshing, thirst-quenching wheat beer with a light fruity, almost dry, mildly perfumed finish.

In Poison City we think accents are kiff. And since we’re not pretentious snobs, our beer comes in different accents too. Like our fruitier, slightly spicy Belgian Wit that speaks to drinkers who’ve had enough of hops. Now that’s super kiff.

The initial appearance of the beer is slightly cloudy and pale. Immediately after pouring you can discern the orange zest and herbal aroma in the glass, however it is not overpowering. Citrus is the main note of this beer, with some coriander in the background. The taste is mild, ever so slightly tart and slightly grainy, which provides the desired full-mouth feel.

The Other Bird

A full-mouthed yet easy drinking Czech dark lager brewed by award winning Prague master brewer, Ladislav Vesely.

The Other Bird, our premium Czech dark lager, isn’t all sea and sunshine. It quite happily flips the bird at those who don’t appreciate honesty, authenticity, quality and a path less travelled.

This kiff dark malt driven beer has an alcohol content of 5.1%, a moderate IBU and an enjoyable medium dry finish. Drinkers can expect a delicious dark chocolate aftertaste that lingers beautifully until the very last sip.
