Forefathers Venue Listing

Blair Hayden's English Pale Ale is ready!


2017 Forefathers venue listings

Cheers to those who paved the way...

Using the finest English Maris Otter malt, this year's Forefathers release is an English Pale Ale. With hints of citrus zest from the addition of bergamot tea, the spicy and floral hop aroma is balanced with a medium bitterness.

This annual limited release is a tribute to our Forefather Blair Hayden. Blair is a publican and patriarch of one of the oldest pubs in Sydney, the Lord Nelson. Refusing to bow to what beers should line the taps, he built a brewery so he could pour his own. 31 years later, Blair’s contributed to the independent beer revolution.

Get to know this lovable character, watch our latest Forefathers video.

The 2017 Forefathers English Pale Ale will be pouring through taps and hitting shelves in venues across Australia from Monday 21st, August.

Share a beer with Blair...

Share a beer with the year's Forefather at his brewery and pub, The Lord Nelson. This Thursday 24 August,  join him and some of our crew  from 6pm to share a few and talk all things beer...More details here.
