Originally crafted as a home brew recipe in a small shed in Bentleigh, our new Beer Hall seasonal was developed by Ed, one of the brewers here at 2Bros. Inspiration for the brew stemmed from one of his favourite brews, Ballast Points ‘Grapefruit Sculpin’ and the coincidental glut of grapefruit he ran into, thanks to a seemingly over excited Grapefruit tree.
Since the home brew recipe came to light, it has always been on the radar here at 2Brothers, especially with the recent introduction of our single batch ‘Beer Hall Series’. So with Ed’s blessing we are now sharing it with the general public!
Utilising organic grapefruit zest throughout the brewing process and a combination of fresh American hops that work to mimic and compliment the grapefruit flavour, we feel we’ve come out with a great tasting fresh IPA that stays true to its name!
Full list of venues where you can find this beer will be announced in the coming week!
Keep your eyes peeled on Facebook & the Website for more info.

Beer Hall closed 26th Jan for Globe to Globe Music Festival
We are closing the Beer Hall for Australia Day, Friday 26th January.
However, we will be just down the road at Namatjira Park in Clayton South for the Globe to Globe Music Festival. See you there!
When you look at this photo what words come to mind? ‘Poor timing’, ‘too excited’ and ‘overwhelmed perhaps?’
I think if you’ve suggested any of these you have hit the nail on the head. Unfortunately this is what happens when three giddy individuals are lucky enough go on their first tour of a hop farm, and what a tour it was.
With little in mind as to what to expect, it was incredible to see the scale of Hop Products Australia’s operation and how they’re dealing with the constant growth and demand for this ever evolving little flower. Lucky for us we were fortunate enough to visit the farm during harvest. This was realised when we were met by a shed in the middle of the country that smelt like tropical fruit and fresh lemon, not exactly what you expect when you walk into a shed in the middle of the high country, but boy did we not complain.
Walking around the farm, it was incredible to experience the aromas that burst out of this flower when it comes fresh of the plant. It’s something that none of us expected nor had ever smelt before. We all came away understanding why using the hop fresh off the plant, commonly known as ‘wet hopping’ could be so effective in brewing……future style perhaps?
Like many of us who share a common passion for good beer, there is often a shared appreciation for the all important hop. With the three of us having worked with our fair share over the years, it was truly a unique experience to see how this incredible smelling flower is transported from plant to pellet. It is something we all thoroughly enjoyed and something any hop head should get out and do!
