Guest Beer - Hop Nation - The Punch
A beer shipped in especially for GP + Friends 2020, as a part of the Road to Beervana celebrations.
Hop Nation are a brewry based in Footscray, Victoira. With a name like Hop Nation, hops are a natural focus but a nod to their winemaking roots was always inevitable, and Sam and Dunc have no shortage of barrel-aged brews under their belt with their Site Fermentation Project. Most recently they've also returned to winemaking under their label Site Wine, with a vineyard in Red Hill Mornington Peninsula.
Showing off a refreshing citrus acidity and a hint of saline smoothness, lifted mango notes and passionfruit pop from the glass. Unfined and unfiltered, THE PUNCH pours slightly hazy in the glass with a dark lemon colour.
