Hop Nation is independently owned and operated by good mates and former winemakers, Sam Hambour and Duncan Gibson. As a sustainably conscious craft brewery, we have cemented ourselves as a staple in Melbourne’s respected beer scene. With “In Hops We Trust” as our motto, we’re renowned for our innovative full-flavoured styles and experimental use of quality natural ingredients. 

The Hop Nation brand has rapidly grown since the release of its first ‘The Fiend’ IPA in 2015 and now consists of a solid core range of brews and an extensive list of limited-edition beers, as well as ’Ray Hard Seltzer, Site Wine, Dart Distilling Gins, and Dog Nation – a bone broth-based beer for pups.

We’re a small group of fun-loving humans, working together to create authentic brews for our craft beer community.
