Campfire Gatherings

Campfire Gatherings

Once again Mornington Peninsula breweries have rallied together in challenging times to create something innovative - a limited edition, easy drinking ale - Campfire Pale Ale.

Friday, 3 July 2020/Categories: News, News

The ale is a collaboration between local breweries Red Hill, Jetty Road, Mr Banks, Mornington Peninsula, St Andrews Beach, Dainton, Hickinbotham of Dromana and Smart Brothers Brewing. Red Hill Brewery Founder Dave Golding explained, ‘We took inspiration from the simple things in life that we sometimes take for granted, like sharing stories with friends and family around the campfire.’

Jetty Road Head Brewer and Co-Founder Blake Bowden shared ‘The Mornington Peninsula is a tight knit community that is renowned for supporting local businesses. It has been a challenging year to say the least, but as is the Aussie tradition, we helped our neighbours in the best way we know how, making a beer while sharing a beer. 2020 will one day be a thing of the past, a story told around campfires of how we all came together in a collective time of need.’

The limited release can be found at all of the participating breweries from July 3 and online from July 4.

Sample something new on the scene while supporting the local craft beer industry on the Mornington Peninsula – we will cheers to that.
