Fox Friday brings craft beer to the suburbs, located in up and coming Moonah in Hobart’s north-west. The brewery is a nano operation focused on providing small batches of beer inspired by Pacific and American styles. The beers are not exclusively traditional and instead highlight balance, refine complementary flavours and showcase natural pairings to create brews which are vibrant and fresh.
From humble beginnings in NZ, with a love for craft beer, a quest for a hands-on career and a determined attitude, owners and brewers Naomi and Wayne Clarkson have built on their dream over the last seven years. After enthusiastically launching onto the craft scene in May 2016 and now in operation Fox Friday celebrates its roots and focusses on keeping the brewing processes real and hands on. Brewers brew the beer by hand, not using big technology - there are no big buttons in our brewery. Simplicity is an important element in our brewing; we use clean and uncomplicated flavours to craft balanced and complete beers.
Fox Friday’s core beers Bombshell Blonde Ale and Bangarang Brown Ale are now joined with two new offerings in 2017, Blistering Belgian IPA and Nefarious NZ/USA IPA.
Drop by for a taste, chat to the brewers, have a pot and grab a takeaway. On offer are growlers, squealers, share packs, and bombers. All our bottles are 640ml, perfect for one, better to share. We have a petite lounge bar space perfect for enjoying your favourite Fox Friday brew during cellar door hours.
Bring your own growler/squealer or pick up your glassware from the door.
Parking is limited on site but there are plenty of options close by.
Fox Friday Beers
Bombshell Blonde Ale
Bombshell Blonde, a refreshing and lighter bodied brew which features a sweet malty base with delicate citrus, passion and stone fruit flavours. An ale style beer with a fresh crispness and subtle floral aroma perfect for a warm summers day. Alc/Vol 5.0%
Bangarang Brown Ale
Bangarang Brown is a rich and moreish ale which melds a smooth caramel biscuit profile with touches of toffee, chocolate and coffee. This brew carefully balances the heaviness of a darker beer with earthy and fruity hop flavours to create a sessionable dark style ale. Alc/Vol 5.4%
Blistering Belgian IPA
A beer which surprises and evolves as you drink, blending a smooth and full malt body expected of a traditional IPA with flavours and aromas of spice, vanilla and mandarin. Belgian yeast adds hints of bubble-gum, fruitiness and complex layers to this brew that continue to develop as you enjoy this beer. Alc/Vol 5.8%
Nefarious NZ/USA IPA
Strongly influenced by NZ and US hop varieties the Nefarious balances a rich malt body, hints of caramel and biscuit with hop layers that celebrate flavours of the whole orchard. Orange marmalade and tropical fruit characters bring this beer to life with a smooth well rounded finish. Alc/Vol 6.4%
