Transatlantic Battle of the IPA : Sierra Nevada V Brewdog

Sierra Nevada and Brewdog go head to head in the Transatlantic Battle of the IPAs. 


With special International Guest, Steve Grossman, have your say about who's beer is best! From Sierra Nevada, enjoy their Hop Hunter Hop Oil IPA and, new to the offering, Tropical Torpedo IPA. Brewdog will be pouring their revolutionary Punk IPA, as well as their delectable grapefruit infused IPA, Elvis Juice.

Tickets include each of the four beers, and a great night with Steve Grossman the U.S Ambassador for Sierra Nevada and Ross from BrewDog Australia. Get them here!

Inspired by the nearby Sierra Nevada Mountains, Sierra Nevada's beers are designed to be as bold, wild and unwavering as those storied granite peaks. With respect to tradition and an unbridled passion for innovation, Sierra Nevada beers are inspired by the philosophy that anything is possible. They are committed to pushing the boundaries of craft beer and look forward to the day that flavorful beers are the standard throughout the world.

BrewDog was born 10 years ago when co-founders James Watt and Martin Dickie got some scary bank loans, spent all their money on stainless steel and started making some hardcore craft beers. They brewed tiny batches, filled bottles by hand and sold their beers at local markets and out of the back of their beat up old van. One of the fastest growing businesses in the UK, BrewDog are hell bent on their mission to make everyone as passionate about great craft beer as they are. Earlier this year craft beer revolutionary BrewDog announced that they’ve set their sights on building a brewery right here in Australia. Keep your eyes peeled.

Tropical Torpedo, 6.7%
Inspired by the island life, an IPA completely disconnected from the mainland. The one-of-a-kind Hop Torpedo delivers an intense rush of hop flavor with the lush aromas of mango, papaya, and passionfruit detectable on every sip. Enjoy a tropical twist on the American IPA.
Hop Hunter IPA, 6.2%
Hop Hunter IPA harnesses the complex flavors of just-picked hops through an all-new method of steam distilling wet hops before they even leave the fields. This revolutionary technique captures and intensifies the natural flavours, creating a unique and intensely aromatic beer. The custom process gathers pure hop oil which, when combined with traditional whole-cone hops in the brew kettle, makes for an incredible IPA experience.
Punk IPA, 5.6%
Their scene-stealing flagship – full-on, full-flavour; at full-throttle. Layered with new world hops to create an explosion of tropical fruit and an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee before a spiky bitter finish, this is a transatlantic fusion running at the fences of lost empires.
Elvis Juice, 6.5%
An American IPA with a bitter edge that will push your citrus tolerance to the brink and back – loaded with tart pithy grapefruit peel. This citrus IPA has a caramel base, supporting a full-frontal citrus overload with grapefruit peel piled on top of US aroma hops. Infused with pine, orange & grapefruit.

I just wanted to send out thanks and compliments. Our function yesterday was amazing, both the food and venue were very impressive. We had so many comments from our guests on both how delicious the meal was and the great venue. Baptiste and his staff were excellent. Couldn't be happier with the day.

I had a great experience at the DOG last weekend. i had booked outside however due to the cold weather the team changed the booking at the very last minute and set our group of 20 up with a new spot indoors. Roast dinner was delicious and only had good feedback from other guests. Love the beer selection!!

Our older guests were very impressed with the refurbishment of the hotel.We were very happy with the attentiveness and help of your Manager on the night....can't remember his name but seemed to have a French accent.
