Hop Nation, Footscray's finest, are one of our five festival breweries this year and we are stoked to have them on board. In addition to pouring their beer at the official Good Beer Week Trade Hub at Beer DeLuxe Fed Square, they are also organising some amazing events during the week.
First up, on Saturday 15 is a double header of Hop Nation events, starting at 6pm with the meat-focussed Meat the Brewers at The Terminus Hotel. They are promising an interactive experience. Expect dry-aged meat, and cheese while you learn about the brewers and the processes behind the food. Starting an hour later, over at the Good Beer Week Festival Hub is the famous Grandad's Supper. The Hop Nation founders will present their beers, alongside their Site Ferment wines, all paired with a degustation by Beer DeLuxe Head Chef Telina Menzies.
Wind down the following day at Bodriggy. They have invited Hop Nation along for a Fight Club-style celebration of beer. There'll be games, live music from both sides of the city, and a special collaboration brew.
Finally, they invite you to Explore Fermentation at the Hop Nation venue, Zymurgy. The venue is a partnership with Yarraville fine-diner Navi, and is a celebration of all things fermented: beer, food, wine and everything in between. That's happening on Wednesday May 19.
Don't forget, throughout the week you can stop by the Beer DeLuxe Festival Hub for an exclusive tasting paddle of our five festival breweries as well.
