Reschs Smooth Black Ale ‘Silk’ Poster


Carlton and United Breweries currently produces Resch’s Draught for the New South Wales hotel market. It is also available in a small number of select venues in South East Queensland. Resch’s Pilsener are available as a bottled beer in 375ml & 750ml sizes throughout the state and available nationally via some online retailers.

Resch’s Real Bitter was discontinued in mid-2018 joining other retired varieties including Dinner Ale (DA), Smooth Black Ale, Extra Stout, Premium Lager, Premier Lager, Sydney Bitter and Double Bitter (DB). Resch’s Smooth dark ale was a tap beer that was big on presentation as it was extra carbonated at the tap with a carbon dioxide cylinder attached to the beer line. The result was a beautifully presented fine bubbles descending down the glass. The mystery of why the bubbles sink as opposed to rise as one might expect has finally been solved — the secret apparently lies in the shape of the pint glasses so CUB used these as part of the presentation.

In January 2012, Carlton and United Breweries released a limited edition of Reschs Draught in 24 can cartons, using the old green and white labelling as well as the “Reschs Lion” adorning the top of each can.

Despite a lack of advertising or investment from its current owner, Reschs has been growing in popularity in recent years. On the 16 September 2019, Reschs was voted Australia’s favourite beer in a recent poll. While it is difficult to pinpoint the main reason for this it has been argued this is a push-back against the explosion of craft beers in recent times.
