Sunstroke Double IPA

Sunstroke Double IPA

Here we go! 2018 is up and running! We’re kicking things off as we left off - Introducing Sunstroke DIPA. Our latest unfiltered Double IPA. Brewed especially for Hopquest 2.0, where it will be in the mix with some of Australia’s best hop forward breweries. Come along this Friday 26th to Beer Deluxe Fed Square, Melbourne @beerdeluxefedsquare to be one of the first to try it. 


Sunstroke is a summer DIPA with some serious stone fruit aroma and tropical flavour and pine finish. It’s a big beer at 8.6% but you’ll be reaching for it on a hot summer’s day and it will do the trick. 


From Saturday 27th January there will be some very select venues pouring the new beer. 

We'll of course be pouring it at Modus HQ. We're throwing a Hottest 100 Celebration and while looking back at 2017 we're cracking on with 2018! We're super excited to share this very limited run with our loyal locals and get involved. But the GABS Hottest 100 will be watched as we listen to the Triple J Countdown, every time one of our beers is placed on the GABS ladder, we'll be shouting the bar. Can't get better than that!

If you can't make it to Modus, here is a list of the few places you'll find it:

The Welcome Hotel,@TheWelcomeHotel Sydney. We’ll be doing a tap takeover with seven taps during the hottest 100 countdown. Every time our beers get placed, we’ll shout the bar. Let’s hope it’s a successful day!

We're turning THREE!


We're turning THREE!

This Saturday (22nd July) we are gearing up for one hell of a party and we wanna party with you - the folks that have made this all possible! The brew crew have been working their butts off to deliver THREE special release beers for THREE special years.. and they have outdone themselves. Here we go...

Beer 1 | Black Lab Milk Stout

No doubt at some point when you have walked though the gates of Modus you would have been greeted by our much loved brewery dog, Stout. He will ensure you reach the bar safely and then is on hand when you can’t fit that last chip in. What most people don’t know is that he celebrates his birthday with Modus and in fact, is the same age. He of course deserves a beer named after him... and believe it or not it's the only Modus beer he will drink! 

Black Lab Milk Stout paws with a thick brown head and envelopes the snout in decadent chocolate aromas. Smoother than a labradors coat due to the lactose sugar, it rolls over tantalising aromas of chocolate, dry biscuit and roast from the addition of eight malty treats. This lavish brew will have you cocking your leg on your neighbours letterbox in “no” time. 

This is our next Limited Edition can release and is exclusively available from the brewery this Saturday with it hitting stockists next week (stockists will be revealed tomorrow night on Facebook and Instagram). 

Beer 2 | Yeast Coast IPA

Wheaty Brewing Corps, Fixation & Modus have done a few versions of this beer brewed at Wheaty in Adelaide, but this time we have brewed it at Modus and have put it into Limited Edition cans, with a fancy collaboration label. This IPA was brewed with oats, torrified wheat, Amarillo, Citra, El Dorado and Simcoe hops, resulting in a soft, layered and fruity brew. A true homage to yeast and great brewery mates!

This beer will be on tap and available for takeaway exclusively from this Saturday. There will be some kegs floating around good bars/pubs in the coming weeks. Cans however will only be available from the brewery OR if you are in Adelaide this Sunday (23rd July) you can grab these cans at the Wheaty as well as some great IPA’s on tap from Wheaty, Fixation & Modus!

Beer 3 | Triple Deity IPA

You know we love our IPA's, so of course we needed another one just for our birthday. And this one is the s$%t - there is 1.5kg of dry hop in each keg of this beer!! Brewed with raw barley and torrified wheat, hopped with only the most expensive hops and $100 bills on a level only justifiable because its our birthday. This beer is bursting with tropical fruit and pineapple aromas.  Supremely soft and perpetually crushable, its the ultimate birthday juice.

We will have a whole bunch of CANimals filled for ya on Saturday so after you have had a few birthday pints you can go home and enjoy in peace. Its ones of those beers that you wanna do this with. Exclusively available at the brewery and very select bars/pubs.

Three new beers. Live tunes by Volky from 5pm. DJ Reece hittin the decks from 8pm. Best 80's Run DMC costume wins huge cake of Modus tins. A sick side show game with prizes. Limited edition 3rd birthday tee. Finger lickin grub. Epic Party. Full-stop. 




Heroes are remembered, Legends never die.

Zoo Feeder IPA is back... for a limited time!

The legendary brew, Zoo Feeder IPA, is fondly remembered by a number of Modus drinkers. What with her fresh pine and citrus hop aromas thanks to Aussie & US hops, beefed up malt bill and of course more hops, this was a legend that was never truely going to die. 

Freshly canned earlier this week (oh the aroma in our canning room!), this brew will be hitting stores from next week. Stockists will be revealed on Thursday night via our Instagram and Facebook posts featuring a video on how to savour and appreciate this brew with our Head Brewer, Dennis. He will also be touching on the appearance of the beer as we have used the East Coast Ale yeast which gives it that lovely haze we are all lovin at the moment!


What's in the name? This beer was named in honour of our our brewery site, which we discovered when first setting up shop. In the late 40’s it was wholesome farmland to feed the exotic animals up at the world famous Taronga Zoo. We are happy to say not much has changed since then as this IPA has done a virtuous job of nourishing exotic creatures big and small!

If you haven't had a chance to try this award winning beer (awarded Champion IPA two years in a row at the Australian Craft Beer Awards), make sure you get your hands on one of these cans - resinous, dank, delicious. May beer be with you!
