Mornington Peninsula Brewery and 8 Wired Brewing: Fools Down the Back

Fools Down the Back is a collaboration between Mornington Peninsula Brewery and 8 Wired Brewing. It is listed as a Brett IPA at the Alehouse and as a session IPA Untappd, but with an ABV of 6.4%, we think this would make for a very short session. If you’re wondering, Brett is short for Brettanomyces, a type of yeast. We didn’t know that either, but either way, we weren’t big fans of it.

I’m guessing that the weird flavour that wasn’t quite doing it for me was the Brett… not a fan of the Brett.

I get a bit of that farmhouse flavour about it … if you told me it was a saison, I would believe that … it’s not my favourite.

– Jeff

It’s interesting and it’s different, but it’s not something I would really choose to drink fairly often.

– Chris

Fools Down the Back, a collaboration between Mornington Peninsula Brewery and 8 Wired Brewing, was featured in Season Two, Episode One.

Chris is an editor, writer, and occasional novelist who in a former life published online magazines for a living while working out of obscure coffee shops. He has travelled extensively and has eaten and enjoyed exotic delights ranging from instant ‘just add water’ potatoes while on a Russian train to snails and Brie from a tiny Montreal kitchen. Chris is a great lover of the experiences around and associated with food and believes the culture of a venue, as quirky or strange as it might be, is just as important as the food it sells. He is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast dedicated to the lighter side of craft beer.
