The beer is built on a pale base which makes the smooth, chocolatey flavour a delightful surprise given the beer’s light appearance. The cacao is further accentuated by the super creamy texture and the classic light, clean cream ale characters. How Now Brown Cacao is Moon Dog’s first ever Nitro release. All cans are nitro charged.

Two violin-playing brothers and their marvelously monikered mate have set out to create beers that meld styles, use all manner of unusual ingredients and frequently get to see the inside of barrels before being unleashed. In keeping with their unique ethos, Josh and Jake Uljans and Karl van Buuren have also situated their microbrewery in a spot equidistant between Carlton United Breweries headquarters and the Duchess brothel. What’s more, they’ve put it together from parts that include those used for seaweed-based cosmetics and an open fermentation tank from the former Wagga Wagga brewery that hasn’t been operational in around 80 years.
