Bob not only gave the boys a crack but also generously passed on all his royalties to allow the company to support a charity partnership with environmental NPO, Landcare Australia. In just four years, Hawke’s Brewing Co. has raised more than $200,000 for Landcare Australia, while brewing some delicious, award-winning beer along the way.
