AUSTRALIA’S FINEST CONCERT BEER
We regularly host 20,000 people at Hope Estate, and they don’t mind a beer. But people don’t want to come to a renowned winery to drink the standard concert beer – lukewarm cans of industrial lager.
We knew something had to be done, so in 2014 we built the Hope Brewhouse right here. Our mission: create the finest concert beer experience in the country. Maybe the world. The beer’s made fifty metres from where it’s served, 100% fresh. No preservatives, no pasteurisation, nothing between you and the pure beer flavour.
Brewer Matt Hogan brings a winemaker’s approach to brewing, adding new dimensions to old favourites. He also brings a maniacal level of productivity, knocking out a relentless stream of interesting new brews. At any given time he has about 10 different beers on the go, from classic sunny afternoon cleansers to heavyweight oak-barrel flavour monsters. Even a gluten-free number that’ll give you a whole new appreciation of rice.
All our beers are on tap in the cellar door. You can buy tasting paddles of 4 beers for $8 in the cellar door, and take home fresh beer in our 2L growlers, cans or bottles. Have a look at what’s currently on offer here.
