Hodfellows Brewing Co – Opening Soon

Something delicious is brewing out in Geebung. Beer enthusiasts Jabin Kirk and Keith Nothling are looking to showcase European beer styles with Hodfellows Brewing Co, a brand-new microbrewery taking shape on Robinson Road. Inspired by travels to storied breweries in Europe (including visits to the Trappist breweries of Westvleteren in Belgium) and spying a gap in the local commercial market for classic Euro ales, Jabin and Keith are looking to create a place where hop heads can quaff this subset of sips, all of which will be made on a traditional German-style four-vessel set up with a brewing capacity of 500 litres. We’re talking a core range Czech and Bavarian-style pilsners, dunkels (German dark lagers), Weissbier (cloudy Bavarian wheat ales) and Belgian-style pale ales. In addition to this, rooms inside Hodfellows HQ (nestled inside a wartime-era timber warehouse) will be dedicated to bottle conditioning – a traditional method of beer ageing, where the booze undergoes a secondary fermentation process and naturally carbonates inside the bottle –  which will see special batch-release triples, quadruples and strong ales brewed inside champagne-style bottles. Hodfellows Brewing Co will launch next year, kicking off with producing , wholesaling and bottling, with plans to add a taproom and retail sales hopefully by mid year. Stay tuned for more on this one in 2023!
