In this workshop with Sam and Duncan from craft brewery Hop Nation you’ll learn all about IPA style beers, from the history, different styles, ingredients, to hopping your own wort and tasting the final product.
First we will take you through a brief history and the development of the modern IPA styles found here in Australia and round the world. While you are listening we will have a 50L kettle full of fresh wort awaiting hop additions.
We will then look through the ingredients used in IPA style beers and how they affect the final brew. You can look, touch and taste these ingredients to gain a better understanding of their interaction in the final beer.
We will hop some wort enjoy the aromas and physically understand what happened to hops in terms of bitterness aroma and flavour during the boil. Then on to the real work! Tasting – we will take you through a tasting panel of IPA style beers, looking and thinking about malt, hops and the brewers touch.
About Sam and Duncan from Hop Nation
HOP NATION IS A CRAFT BREWERY STARTED IN 2014 BY WINEMAKING FRIENDS SAM HAMBOUR AND DUNCAN GIBSON.
“It takes a lot of good beer to make good wine” – with years of work and travel through several wine regions of the world between them, Sam and Duncan have been exposed to not only great wines of the world, but incredible international beers. With this behind the scene influence and years of backyard brewing experience, they decided to create a craft brewery in Melbourne, Australia.
Hop Nation is a brewery devoted to showcasing not only the glorious ingredients in beer, but also the origin of the ingredients – coinciding with the course of quality winemaking.
With a name like Hop Nation, hops are a natural focus. Our beers are made using quality, natural ingredients, small batch brewing, no fining or pasteurisation and minimal filtration.
