Hopfest Beer SpecTAPular! locked in for Feb 6

The Hopfest Beer SpecTAPular! is confirmed for both venues for Saturday February 6th. It will be a celebration of beers characterised by hops.

We're putting together a list of great hoppy beers (from anywhere we can get them) on our taps for that day. We’d love your ideas (comment below).. They won’t all be IPAs, DIPAs and we'll definitely include some sessionable beers and hopefully a few exclusives. The tasting booklet will detail which hops are used in brewing each beer.

As usual, we pick a charity which the gold coin entry donations goes to. In St Kilda, we''ll be raising money for our own Local Arts Initiative. We're yet to finalise the charity for Darlo..


  1. Bridge Road Beechworth Pale Ale.
    Hawthorn Pale Ale
    Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor - thought I'd throw in a "easy to get" one!

    Prof. Pilsner

  2. I'd go for Fullers Chiswick Bitter,
    Fullers IPA, Crouch Vale Brewers Gold, Thornbridge Jaipur IPA, Victory Hop Devil, Colonial IPA, Stone and Wood Draught Ale and Seven Sheds Kentish Ale

  3. It'd be nice to see the Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA in there. It's a pretty massive beer.

  4. Oh man, I would kill for any of these:
    Smuttynose IPA or Big A IPA, Bell's Two Hearted Ale, Rogue Capn Sig's Northwest Ale, Avery IPA or Maharaja, Victory Hop Wallop (on cask!), Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA or Celebration Ale or Harvest Series, or my old local beer: Sweetwater IPA...

  5. Sierra Nevada, Sierra Nevada and, um, Sierra Nevada!!!!!

  6. UK - Timothy Taylor Land Lord
