The Riverview Hotel provides an unparalleled pub experience. Our exceptional range of beer on tap, as well as our delicious menu, makes us the ‘go to’ destination for a great chilled afternoon session or a relaxed evening out.

    XPA means Extra Pale, a product of Quickchange's lighter malt base. That delicate colour though is undercut by a glorious hit of alpha oils from Mosaic, Galaxy and Citra hops. Sometimes you don't want your mouth flayed raw and your liver worked to a standstill. Sometimes a few luscious notes of mango, guava, lychee and pineapple can be just the thing.

    Their Natural Lager is an accessible, Aussie take on a traditional German recipe. “Natural” because it's unfiltered with no preservatives and “Lager” because the light bitterness and dry finish drinks all day, every day, especially when the weather's hot.

    Guinness is a traditional Irish stout beer made from barley, hops, water, and a specific strain of ale yeast. The dark ale is known for its dense, creamy head, which is achieved by mixing the beer with nitrogen to create smaller bubbles that result in a thicker head.

    Hahn SuperDry lager has low bitterness and a light body with a clean finish for refreshing, easy drinking. Extended fermentation breaks down even more natural sugars so there are less carbs than other full-strength beers, and it's clean and crisp on the tongue.

    One Fifty Lashes is a refreshing Australian-style cloudy pale ale with a restrained bitterness and a clean, smooth finish. The use of malted wheat also adds to its refreshing character, delivering a beer with a lightly fruity nose, with hints of passion fruit, grapefruit and citrus.

    The flavor of beer brewed from 100% malt is usually described as strong and heavy. But KIRIN ICHIBAN, brewed only from the first press of the wort, is crisp yet maintains all the rich flavor of the malt.

    The original Little Creatures Pale Ale is an American Pale Ale (5.2% alc/vol), brewed with Cascade (aroma) and Chinook (bittering) whole hop flowers, self-propagated yeast with a secondary bottle fermentation, and Australian malts.

    Best beer in the world, has a refreshing taste that doesn't get old or too fruity like a lot of current beers, finishes off with a crisp bitter taste.

    Furphy Refreshing Ale is a clean and crisp, balanced beer with subtle fruit flavours and aromas. There's a subtle maltiness throughout, which leads to a pleasantly refreshing, dry finish. This is an approachable Ale, inspired by the German Kolsch style, but could be easily mistaken for a light lager.

    Coopers Pale Ale is the original Pale Ale. Beware of pale imitations. This all-malt brew has inspired a new generation of ale lovers. With its fruity and floral characters, balanced with a crisp bitterness, Coopers Original Pale Ale has a compelling flavour that is perfect for every occasion.
