Unless you're near Hobart, you're gonna have to travel for this one. Moo Brew's Hop Harvest Ale is the first beer they're going to hold onto for themselves, serving it only at the new Mona Winery Bar. It's a wet-hopped version of the brewery's Pale Ale, using fresh Summer hops (also known as Summer Saaz - a variety only recently developed by Hop Products Australia at nearby Bushy Park), picked by the brewers and thrown straight into the tanks. According to Mona's bar manager Kris Miles: "It has aromas of stonefruit, particularly apricot and a nice lingering bitterness."
