Tim Thomas from Nowra’s HopDog BeerWorks
What beer are you making for GABS?
We’re making a pentagonally hopped barrel aged India Brown Rye Ale.
What’s it called?
It’ll be called the Taxidermied Pachyderm.
Where did the inspiration come from?
It’s a box ticker. We had to ‘‘one up’’ Brett the Bloody Orange, and this is what we decided on. It’s got all the things we love – judicious amounts of rye malt, time spent in barrel, plus a smattering of Australian hops. What’s not to love about it?
For those who might over-indulge, do you have a suggestion for a post-GABS hangover remedy?
There isn’t one. Don’t go too silly, plan ahead, eat well, and keep hydrated.
Finally, finish this sentence, craft beer is …
The Great Australasian Beer Spectapular is at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne on May 22-24 and Australian Technology Park, Sydney on May 30.
