It’s a crazy world out there at the moment, hey? Now Mountain Culture doesn’t want to get political… so they won’t! Instead, let them introduce their newest West Coast IPA. It has a mix of their favourite American hops along with their homegrown darling, Vic Secret, and together they provide a complex array of oranges, pineapples and a deep, dank undertone. It’s the perfect way to welcome in the warmer Spring weather, sure, but Mountain Culture also finds it helps take the sting out of the daily Press Conferences.

Built in 1912 in the beautiful Blue Mountains town of Katoomba, their building housed ‘The Echo’, the local paper for many a year. Later it allegedly passed time as a “dancing saloon and home for lost or belated drunks”, until finally ending up as a Civic Video store. In 2017 DJ and Harriet McCready embarked on transforming the dilapidated building into the first brewpub in the Blue Mountains.
