Moon Dog

Back when Moon Dog first appeared on the Australian beer scene, we were moved to open this description with the iconic words of Monty Python: "And now for something completely different."

It's testament to the evolution of the beer world – and the impact Moon Dog have had upon it locally – that their approach isn't quite as "completely different" these days. In the years since they took up residence in the Abbotsford warehouse in the shadow of CUB's main site, more brewing companies have launched with a similar approach to creating beers, or put out limited releases that share common ground with the more outré ideas with which Moon Dog's founders first gained notoriety.

Travel back to their earliest days and you'll find the likes of a Cognac barrel-aged double IPA, an imperial gingerbread stout and a whopping pale ale that counted rose and chrysanthemum water among its ingredients. They came bearing names such as the The Artisan Poser, Perverse Sexual Amalgam and the George Freeth Memorial Brown Ale - and featuring suitably outlandish packaging - and were produced on a brewery put together from parts that include those used for seaweed-based cosmetics and an open fermentation tank from the former Wagga Wagga brewery that hadn't been operational in around 80 years.

They were unlike pretty much anything else seen in the local beer world to that point. But the trio made up of two violin-playing brothers and their mate could see where things were headed.

Just as the Australian beer landscape has evolved and grown since then, so has the business launched by Josh and Jake Uljans and Karl van Buuren. In the case of Moon Dog, the penchant for often daft experimentation has continued, usually in small batches using the original brewhouse and its much-expanded collection of fermenters, but the operation has grown well beyond that. There's a core range of sensible beers – Old Mate pale ale, Mack Daddy dark ale, Beer Can, Lager – driving volume sales and a large team working across Australia and exploring overseas markets.

In May 2014, they opened their brewery bar, shortly after taking over an adjacent warehouse where they could install a bottling line, storage and table tennis table (accessed through a bookshelf). That has since become an extension of the venue and is regular hired out for functions, with a much bigger production facility built down the street (and a separate space filling with barrels across the road).

That expansion has merely proved to be an appetiser. Late in 2019, they'll open the doors to what promises to be the most outrageous brewery venue in Australia. They've taken over the former Nylex production plant in Preston, a truly vast space, where the venue will feature a waterfall, lagoon and stage sitting in front of a glass wall behind which they're going to install one of the biggest breweries in Australia.

Once it's all in place and firing, it looks like Monty Python's words will be just as appropriate as they were in the early days.

Moon Dog Lager

Tapped May 10th, 2019
Gather 'round, people, I'll tell you a story. A seven-year story of lager and hops... It starts in 2012, when Moon Dog went against their grain and released a lager. Except they didn't really as Love Tap was a very Moon Dog lager: 7.1 percent ABV and coming on like what we described at the time as "hop goo". Over time, said beer was revised again and again, typically towards something approximating a "normal" lager – at least in terms of alcohol content, as the hops remained… Read more

More than four years after launching with beers such as a Cognac barrel-aged double IPA and a cherried, barrel-aged sour black ale, Moon Dog has entered the fray in the most densely populated part of the Aussie craft beer world: the hoppy, pale, around 5 percent ABV ale arena. Indeed, they're doing it with a beer that is very hoppy, not as pale as some, but very much 5 percent ABV.

Over the course of 2015, visitors to Moon Dog's ever-evolving and increasingly popular brewery bar may have noticed rather more beers at sensible ABV levels appearing on the blackboard; quite something for a brewery where one brewer once told us they didn't really like their weekly one-off kegs to come in less than 8 percent ABV.

The evolution of Moon Dog's first ever "core" beer reaches its third (or is that fourth) and possibly final stage. The beer that started out as a double lager at 7.1 percent ABV and that, in its first iteration, we likened to drinking hop goo, was initially brought down to a more repeatable 5.9 percent ABV when first bottled. From 2015, its draught incarnation has been turning out as an even more sessionable 5 percent ABV, thus appearing as many a crafty pub's happy hour offering. And,… Read more

Not long after this beer first appeared, it became the third permanent addition to the Abbotsford brewery's range.

Tapped December 19th, 2014
As soon as word arrived at GBW HQ in September last year from Rogue’s importer, Phoenix Beers, that John Maier was planning to head to Melbourne for Good Beer Week, the third Masterclass collaboration event wrote itself. Who else from the Melbourne scene would you pair the brewer behind beers as colourful and varied as Dead Guy, Voodoo and Beard Beer with aside from Abbotsford crazies Moon Dog? That Phoenix distributed the latter’s beers too made things easier still. Thus it was that, following… Read more

Moon Dog Marmajuke

Tapped December 8th, 2014
Thursday regulars at Moon Dog's brewery bar, or indeed their Facebook followers, will be aware that each week the crazy kids like to unleash a new single keg experiment on one of their taps. Usually high in booze content, almost always featuring some unusual ingredient and definitely an excuse for one of them to exercise his skills on MS Paint, it is also a chance for the brewers to try out some new ideas that may or may not graduate beyond the 50 litre stage. First to graduate is Marmajuke, a citrus'd… Read more

Moon Dog Jumping The Shark 2014

Tapped September 26th, 2014
It looks like September 2014 shall forever more be known as Saffron Month in the world of Australian craft beer, with Bendigo’s Brookes Beer and Abbotsford’s Moon Dog decided that for too darn long have drinkers been denied the chance to sample the spice obtained from the stigma of a crocus flower in their beer. Although for lovers of Moon Dog’s unique brand of experimental, high ABV madness, it will more likely be remembered as the month that “Ayyyyyyy!” returned as The Fonz reappeared… Read more

Moon Dog Black Lung IV

In a recent radio interview to chat about our new beer book, the host in Brisbane plucked a few beers from its pages that had caught her eyes for different reasons. Among them was Black Lung, with its eye-catching packaging – a suit-and-tie-wearing skeleton with hole in its skull smoking multiple cigars – prompting a question about the importance of presentation in the craft beer world.

Moon Dog Cold Drip War

Tapped July 16th, 2014
The GABS 2014 beers keep on coming, with the latest cab off the ranks the entry from Melbourne's Moon Dog. The Stalin-endorsed beer is tagged as a coffee and chicory porter, but has a wee bit more besides, with a touch of rye malt in the grist. The coffee (from their friends and neighbours at Coffee Supreme) was added during conditioning with the chicory making an appearance in the boil. As for the inspiration, it turns out that during the late 70s there was a coffee crisis in East Germany so a replacement… Read more

Moon Dog Bjorn To Boogie

It's almost as if they knew the heatwave was coming... For their latest release, Moon Dog has returned to the fruit bowl and, vaguely, to the scene of one of their earlier adventures. Some of you may recall the Magnificent Mullet series of beers that saw Mel(on) Gibson, MacGuava and Billy Ray Citrus star as fruity, wheaty, tarty ales.

The launch of what is intended to be a series of annual specials from Moon Dog has something of the PR strategist's approach about it. Namely: own the attack before your opponent can. For the uninitiated in leather jacket-wearing, quiff-haired pop culture references (which turns out to be quite a lot of you if Crafty's mates are any guide), "jumping the shark" refers to an episode of Happy Days in which The Fonz jumps a shark on waterskis (while still wearing his leather jacket).

Moon Dog Mummy Have A Bite

Tapped September 20th, 2013
Presumably launched to coincide with the start of the Royal Melbourne Show (or more likely because they had secured some calvados barrels), the second new release of the week from Moon Dog is touted as a Toffee Apple Amber Ale. In adding calvados to the list of barrels they've dragged through the brewery, pumped full of booze (and sometimes bacteria), emptied and released into the world - think shiraz, bourbon, whisky, rum, Cognac... - they set about recreating that tooth-rotting, appley-underneath… Read more

It's not just Hollywood that has sequel fever. It's even infiltrating the Aussie craft beer world. You've got Red Duck banging out Ra #2, #3, #4 and so on (a hopless Imperial Egyptian Bread Beer for the uninitiated) and here's Moon Dog with Black Lung III. At its heart (it's black, molten heart) it's a "smokey stout", in other words a stout with a little peated malt added for a touch of smokiness.

Moon Dog / Kissmeyer Nordic Saddle Buffer

In the year or so since he was in Australia to judge at the 2012 Australian International Beer Awards and brew with a number of local brewers, we've come to understand well the modus operandi of Danish gypsy brewer Anders Kissmeyer when it comes to collaborations.

As hybrids go, the fusing of Star Wars' Lando Calrissian with one of modern TV's most potent symbols of an impending apocalypse is pretty unusual; adding what appears to be a Wookiee's hand and a rubber glove to the label of the beer bearing said name adds further confusion. Yet the style for Moon Dog's latest isn't as outlandoish as many from their past.

Moon Dog Mr Mistoffelees

Now this is a weird one. And not just because it's a beer from Moon Dog. No, because when we first sampled Mr Mistoffelees at last year's Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular, we found it to have an unpleasant characteristic that rendered it, to the Crafty palate at least, undrinkable.

Apparently this is a "Fancy Christmas Ale". We're not sure what that means, to be honest. Does it mean that there are brewers out there producing beers for the festive period that aren't fancy? Or have the Moon Doggers done something particularly out there for this one - perhaps swimming in the mash tun again?

The words "Moon Dog" and "pumpkin", when used in tandem, send a shudder down the Crafty spine.

It miraculously disappeared one AFL Grand Final Day with nobody in attendance able to recall what could have happened to it. The mystery remains unsolved; our guilt unassuaged.

AKA Peter Piper's Pickled Pepper Purple Peated Pale Ale AKA the beer the Moon Doggers were destined to make from the moment they discovered they shared more than a passing resemblance to the Yeastie Boys. Knocked up during Good Beer Week in May, when the Kiwis were in town, it's not your typical pale ale. For a start, it's nine per cent.

The original Black Lung was quite possibly the Crafty Pint's pick of the Moon Dog beers to date.
