A beer star is born

At 19 years of age, one of our young brewers, Harri Cox has just completed his first solo brew. Operating like he has been doing it for years, Harri smashed through the brew of Lager, one of Mornington’s core beers. It is incredibly reassuring to know the future of craft beer is in capable hands. Congratulations champion!

Australia’s first nitro can

Mornington’s first Nitro-charged can is also an Australian first. It is an ESB titled Dog’s Bollocks, paying homage to its English style. A malty English Pale Ale with an English-strain yeast and classic English hops, with an ABV of 6.2%, works well with the in-can nitrogen dosing, which creates a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

Bringing home the gold

The 2016 Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) was held recently, and MPB once again came away with the goods. Our Russian Imperial Stout won gold, and our Pale and Brown both received a Bronze. It was a great effort, and it is very rewarding to our brewer’s to be recognized for their tireless efforts.
