Blobfish Collaboration Beer 2019
Australia's first Blobfish Beer Festival was held in Melbourne, Victoria, on Saturday 24 August 2019. Like the Blobfish itself, sour, funky and wild beers emerge from the depths of the beer scene - intriguing, slightly obscure, somewhat unknown but always exciting.
The day before the festival, the team at Hop Nation hosted the festival brewers for a day of bottle-sharing, eating and general camaraderie. They each brought with them a sample of their house culture, which when combined was used to inoculate the wort in ex-Chardonnay barrels.
Organic Friulano grape skins from Quealy Winemakers were then added to the barrels where the beer continued to ferment and age for eight months.
The Saison is the result of that collaboration brew day and a token of all the great people that helped create the festival.
