HopDog brews hops-centric beers and artisanal ales, focusing on quality ingredients and attention to detail. HopDog is an 800 litre, independent nano brewery located on the South Coast of NSW. HopDog is an ale only brewery.
Head brewer Tim Thomas brings 13 years of professional brewing experience, having brewed previously for Lord Nelson and Five Islands Brewing Company, and has seen the emergence and rise of the Australian craft beer industry.
The craft brewing industry brings with it food matching and opening a flood of food preparations using beers - cuisine de la biere - and brewing with ingredients normally used for cooking. Oak barrels, gingerbreads, coffee, and seasonal fruits all have a place in the HopDog larder.
With 14 years' experience as a chef, Tess has the experience and knowledge of flavours and food matching to help refine the final product, and sort the brewery into a well-oiled machine.
