THE SIDE HUSTLE STORY

Our story began on a ride from Abu Dhabi to Dubai. Our founder, Chad, realized there was nowhere in the country that sold the fresh, juicy, hazy IPA he craved after an insane month at the office.

As he sat in traffic near the eastern mangroves, he had an epiphany: the UAE community has been overlooked by the global beer industry – and the amazing beverages developed by craft brewers around the world were simply not present.

With no local brewing operations and no focus from global exporting breweries, UAE residents were basically stuck drinking whatever beer the top global brands decided they deserved…

OUR OFFERINGS

‘THE BREWS’
We utilize local ingredients, including hops from our sister company ‘Keystone Hops Farm’, to provide the freshest, seasonally appropriate flavor profiles available.
Logistical Nightmare BA Stout

Malt+Hops+Water+Yeast. That’s it. That’s all it takes to make ordinary beer — but this isn’t just any ordinary beer.

This bottle is our ode to our fellow expatriates, those brave souls who leave all that they know in search for something bigger, bolder, better. And, like the expatriate, this stout’s character was built on a foundation laid in its homeland and redefined by its travels.

Our limited addition imperial stout was build on a base of malts and hops from across Germany, England, and America and yeast from Norway. Once brewed, it was matured in oak barrels forged in Portugal and first used to age port wine before being sent to America to add soft, sweet notes to spicy American rye whiskey. But its defining characteristic which make it truly special is the addition of Medjool dates and Burundi Migoti coffee, freshly roasted by Cafe Rider in Dubai, UAE.

Stop searching. The bigger, bolder, better beer you’ve been looking for is finally here. It was brewed just for you.

BOOZIE BRUNCH JUICE

Our mimosa killer is a silky-smooth double IPA jam packed with 40 kgs per barrel of fresh mango, pink guava, peach and plums per batch. We stuffed the whirlpool with Mosaic, Simcoe and Citra hops then did it twice more in the dry hop to really elevate the stone fruit and citrus aromas. To balance its body and carry the fruit profile through, we utilized flaked oats and lactose, which provides just a hint of creamy sweetness. Move over mimosa, the new champion of brunch has arrived.

Expect ripe apple, green melon and pear flavors balanced by just the right amount of IPA bitterness.

We then conditioned it on 30 kgs of fresh peach puree, pink salt and fresh lime zest to create this light bodied and refreshingly tart peach Gose.
