Say it’s not so?! – Farewell to Hopdog Beerworks

Brewer Tim Thomas and a blow in

It is with a heavy heart that your backoftheferry correspondents pass on the news that Nowra’s Hopdog BeerWorks is closing its doors for the last time today, Saturday July 7 2018.

We managed a couple of visits to the source over the years, here and there, and always found Tim to be a welcoming host and keen to share his passion and knowledge about the beers he brewed.

Tim’s penchant for brilliant and exotic names for his beer was a standout. BackoftheFerry waited with baited breathe on the GABs festival especially as there would always be a Hopdog special.

The etherial Pandapoppinfairyturkishfloss is a standout. But others that jump out are the BattlePhruit Galactica VIPA, the Taxidermied Pachyderm and the Curly Jefferson.

Beat that for a beer name

We know Tim wants to stay with brewing in some way so we’ll keep our eye out for anything he is involved in. Many thanks Hopdog for all the crafty goodness you gave us!
