Our Story

Our idea behind Esker centres around life's journey being a path. A path that takes you on winding adventures, be it around the world, or simply around Sydney. You could be chasing a career, travelling the far reaches of the earth, or just going for a bushwalk in Bidjigal Reserve.

We believe that all roads will eventually lead you home. Inspired by our home in the Hills Shire of Sydney, we craft beers to be enjoyed on that journey.

The Home of Esker is at the Australian Brewery in Rouse Hill. Our production facility there has been the only brewery in the Hills Shire for the last 12 years.

Esker Beer Company acknowledges the Dharug People who are the traditional custodians of the land upon which we brew. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land throughout Australia and pay respects to Elders past, present and future.

Our Beers

Esker Pacific Ale

Our Pacific Ale has a simple, clean malt bill of Australian malted barley, wheat and oats. These light malts, combined with low bitterness, keep this modern style light and fresh, letting the new world hops of Galaxy, Citra and Melba shine through

Tasting Notes:

Tropical fruit
Low bitterness

IBU: 17
ABV: 4.8%

Esker Lager

Esker Lager is inspired by light bodied, refreshing Mexican lagers and their use of maize in the grain bill. Maize allows the body of the beer to stay light and crisp. Controlled use of Crystal, Mosaic and Pacific Gem hops leads to a light lemony citrus hop character with low bitterness, creating a palette cleansing, refreshing crispness.

Tasting Notes:

Clean Light Finish
Crisp & Fresh
Citrus Hop

IBU: 15
ABV: 4.5%

Esker Old Dark Ale

Esker Old Dark Ale, previously known as Old Cattle Dog, is the dark beer for all year round. Restrained roast malt additions create subtle roast and chocolate characters and keep the body of this dark ale light to enhance its sessionability.

Tasting Notes:

Smooth Finish
Light Roast

IBU: 25
ABV: 4.4%


Esker Hazy Pale

Utilising NZ Nectaron hops as its primary flavour driver, expect to find a strong stone and tropical fruit hop hit. Several hop additions are made during the fermentation process to build a layered and complex fruit driven experience. Large amounts of oats are used to build out the body creating a rounded, soft texture.

Tasting Notes:

Tropical & Citrus
Full Body
Bold Hop

IBU: 18
ABV: 5.5%

Esker West Coast IPA

Centennial, Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo hops provide the backbone of our West Coast IPA. With a solid 50 IBU bitterness, backed up by dark crystal, caramunich and vienna malt additions, this big bold IPA holds a place of pride in the Esker core range.

Tasting Notes:

Malt Character
Citrus & Pine

IBU: 50
ABV: 6.5%

Esker Citrus Gose

Inspired by the citrus farms which once populated the Hills Shire, we decided to make something a little unique. Combining mandarin, orange peel, coriander and salt to a wheat heavy malt bill, with a touch of melanoidin malt for colour. We created a slightly tart, refreshing beer with a clean, light salt finish

Tasting Notes:

Lighty tart
Citrus & Salt
Clean finish

IBU: 5
ABV: 4.2%
