York Surf x Jack Black Beer

November 5, 2018 IN Collaborations, Competitions

Fun Waves. Cold Beer. Good Times. Certainly one of our favourite combinations.

It’s been a killer season of epic surf, so we’ve teamed up with our mates at York to bring you some epic boards. We’re connected by our love for the old school, handcrafted way of doing things, and by our desire to just have a really good time. So call it a ‘collaboration of spirit’.




The result is four super-sexy Sunfish surfboards, with designs inspired by each of the beers in our core range – our Brewers Lager, Cape Pale Ale, Atlantic Weiss, and Keller Pils. Easy drinking meets easy riding. From the hips. Summer style. We’ve also got 30 hampers made up of rad limited edition ‘collaboration of spirit’ tees and caps, and BEER, of course.




To get your hands on one of these beauties, head over to one of the below participating stores (or our brewery), buy any two 6 packs of Jack Black beer, write your name and number on your slip, and drop it in the entry box provided before 31 December. We’ll draw the winner in early Jan and the lucky bugger will get a call with the great news.

Ain’t really much more to it.

The boards are on display in our brewery – pull in to check them out, and stay for a beer and a bite!


The surfing world is a better place, thanks to Steve Lis, creator of the fish. The Sunfish is York’s slightly modified version – slightly more rocker in the tail and the nose, with a higher performance rail and pulled in tail. This makes this board a go to in both weak and mushy and slightly overhead hollower conditions. Tested from berg to Bali, this is a must have for a quiver.

Jack Black Brewing Company - Lumberjack Amber Ale

Beer of the Month: Lumberjack

July 5, 2017 IN Beers, Competitions

It’s Beer of the Month time again! This time round we have 2×4 Packs of Lumberjack Amber Ale, a vintage bottle opener as well as a brewery tour and tasting to give away. 

This July we celebrate a favourite winter companion – our Lumberjack Amber Ale.

Today in a time of mass-produced, commodity driven beer, Lumberjack stands apart from the rest. Rooted in tradition and craftsmanship, this beer originated with the fearless outdoorsman in mind: strong, confident and resolute. As bold as the woodsman who worked the timber in a bygone era, Lumberjack has a sturdy malt driven backbone, packed with loads of roasted malt. Huge hop additions intensify the piney, citrus aromas of this full flavoured ale. 

Clocking in at 6% ABV and 40 IBU’s – it’s a beer for the brave. Fireside recommended.
