Murray’s Thunderbolt IPA is their hoppiest IPA yet! Packed full of Columbus, Mosaic and Equinox hops throughout the brewing process, then significantly dry hopped in the fermenter, Thunderbolt has an intense aroma and flavour of citrus, pine and tropical fruit. The firm bitterness is rounded out by the sweetness of caramalts and alcohol. A beer to be enjoyed with care.
Murray and the team have been brewing unique and off-beat naturally crafted beers since 2006 and in the process have won a bunch of awards and accolades – including Australia’s Brewer of the Year last year. The craft beer bug bit Murray a few years before this, when he was on a trip to America. Legend has it that he tried a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale at a roadside diner in California and thought he’d died and gone to beer heaven! This experience inspired him to open his own brewery so he could brew and enjoy the beers he wanted to drink back home in Australia.

Awarded GOLD and CHAMPION BEER at the 2016 Craft Beer Industry Association Awards. The birthplace of Murray’s Craft Brewing Co was the tiny hamlet of Taylors Arm (population 50) on the NSW North Coast. Murray bought the iconic Pub With No Beer (of Slim Dusty fame) and quickly solved the supply problem by installing a microbrewery on site.
