The Critics’ Choice: Australia’s 100 best beers

Australia's Top 100 Beers (2015) - Number 1 - Feral Brewing 'Hop Hog'


Number 1 in the Critics’ Choice top 100 is a beast that explodes with citrusy flavours and hop aromas, rounded out with a solid malt backbone.

A farmload of American hops makes Hop Hog a uniquely Feral brew... and just a little fruity.

A beer that makes Critics Choice Editor Pete Mitcham break out into song: “Hello Hop Hog my old friend, I see you’re number one again…” With apologies to Simon & Garfunkel for butchering a classic. Although, if the folksy warblers had ever had a Hop Hog they would probably be so inspired as to come up with something far more tuneful, expressive and worthy of such a highly acclaimed and consistently high quality beer.
