Several weeks ago we joined forces with Stomping Ground Brewing Co (Melbourne) to produce our first collaboration beer for 2017: Fog Stomp!
Fog Stomp is the first collaboration brew from Stomping Ground Brewery in Melbourne and FogHorn Brewhouse Newcastle. Stomping Ground is the new Brewpub from the team that runs the Great Australian Beer Spectacular (GABS) each year. They know good, innovative beer and brought that approach to the collaboration. A Belgian Blonde Ale in style, but brewed with the addition of 20% Rye Malt and using US grown Simcoe hops creates an intensely flavoured, spicy, peppery flavour hit. We also experimented with the new ‘Hop Hash’ product – the result is strong fruity bitter citrus hop aroma and flavour that doesn’t mask the distinctive spicy rye malt notes, or the classic Belgian yeast profile. A complex, full flavoured brew that brings the best from two of Australia’s best small breweries together for the first time.
