Another Hazy Pale out in cans, Melbourne Fog was originally brewed as a collab beer with Whitehart Bar in Melbourne’s CBD. It was a hit on tap, so much so we decided it deserved a spot in the beer fridge. Featuring fruity notes from Nelson Sauvin, Loral and Mosaic hops, it gets its full haze dose thanks to 50% oat malt.It’s everything you love about a NEIPA with full flavour and body, but at only 4.8% ABV. A sessionable, easy-drinking, hazy hoppy pale.
Hop Nation is a craft brewery started in 2014 by winemaking friends Sam Hambour and Duncan Gibson. With years of work and travel through several wine regions of the world between them, Sam and Duncan have been exposed to not only great wines of the world, but incredible international beers. With this behind the scene influence and years of backyard brewing experience, they decided to create a craft brewery in Melbourne, Australia.
DID YOU KNOW?
In naming this beer Hop Nation sought out a great American number two – Buzz Aldrin – the second guy on the moon. With the huge success of their first release The Fiend, this beer, like Mr. Aldrin, has some big steps to follow but they are confident this little hop dude can do it. Plus it weighs in at a decent 6.5% ABV – so, may the buzz be with you.
