LAPIN is the first of Hop Nation Brewing’s Site Fermentation Project barrel-aged beers to be released in cans. It celebrates the 2018 cherry harvest. Their foedre-aged sour blonde ale was re-fermented on 250kgs of organic Victorian Lapin Cherries for two months before further conditioning in can.
The result is a complex, tart and refreshing sour.
Hop Nation is a craft brewery that 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.

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, like Mr. Aldrin, this beer has some big steps to follow but they are confident this little hop dude can do it. In addition, it weighs in at a decent 6.5% ABV – so, may the buzz be with you.
