From our hoppy IPA inspired by Queensland’s tropical climate, to our easy going lager, to our fruity pale ale that tastes like Gladstone sunshine.

We’re proud of our 100-year history in our hometown and can’t wait to show you what we’ve been brewing up under the Ward name.

Ward’s Core Range


Lager, ABV 4.2%

A clean crisp and refreshing Lager, pale straw in colour with grainy sweet malt character balanced by the flavour and aroma of fresh citrus lemon and lime zest. Perfect for that all day barbie!

Pale golden with a tinge of light amber, this easy drinking beer will surprise you with its clean hop forward flavour of new world hop varieties. Fruity and floral aromas entice you as your palate indulges in the light biscuit malt and medium bitterness.

Hazy Pale Ale, ABV 5.2%

Hazy white gold, a smooth luxurious velvet sensation, this beer will take you on a tropical island holiday, with the taste and aroma of mango, papaya, grapefruit, passionfruit and pineapple, well balanced and full of flavour.

IPA, ABV 5.8%

Deep sunset gold, a soft malt structure allows the juicy mouth coating hoppiness to shine through with a solid but smooth bitterness, flavours of citrus lime and mandarin, aroma of pineapple and passionfruit, everything you would expect from an IPA and more.

Session Ale, ABV 3.5%

A lighter version of our IPA at just 3.5%, it retains the lovely hop flavours and aromas but without the body, texture and alcohol of its big brother.

Tropical Pale Ale, ABV 4.6%

Copper bronze in colour with a slight haze this unfiltered Pale Ale is hop forward Tropical fruit blast with sufficient malt structure to provide both sweetness and a well rounded mouthfeel.


We think good beer is more than malt, hops, yeast and water. It’s the drink that brings out the best conversations between mates. It’s the drink that’s raised to celebrate great moments. It’s an excuse to get together with old friends or meet new ones.

We hope our approachable craft beers bring the local community together.
