It’s common practice for breweries to mark anniversaries with a beer, whether brewing a new beer every birthday like Bridge Road, tweaking an Anniversary Ale like they do at Murray’s or saving it for the big ones like Mountain Goat, who marked ten years with the Double Hightail and will commemorate turning 15 later this month with the Triple Hightail. What’s more, it seems the brewing of a commemorative ale is not confined only to brewers.


On October 26, Melbourne’s Fed Square turns 10. The landmark coincides with the latest running of the Victorian Microbreweries Showcase, so it didn’t take long for someone to decide to mark the occasion with a new beer. And thus was born F10 (the beer’s working name), a “hoppy red ale” that went into the tanks at Prickly Moses last week and was created by the brewing minds at the Otway Estate brewery, 3 Ravens and Holgate.

Lending a hand was Rory Murphy, from Fed Square, who told The Crafty Pint: “We had a birthday beer for our fifth birthday. That one happened by chance really. A talented homebrewer Robin Brown, who has since taken those talents to the next level with his Black Heart Brewery, won a homebrewing comp and got to brew his recipe at a local micro.”

The beer was a hefeweizen called the Fed-5-Weizen, which was served at Transport Hotel at Fed Square. Five years on, it seemed only fitting to brew another.

“With Fed Square’s long relationship with the Victorian micro scene through the Showcase we thought it would be easy enough to get some of our regular showcase attendees together to concoct a suitably delicious birthday brew,‘ says Rory. “And it was. Once we approached the guys they were all immediately interested and excited about the idea. Being a beer lover and homebrewer myself I also had the faintest of ulterior motives in the idea of being able to pitch in and get my hands dirty in helping out with the brew!”

Thus it was that he headed to the Otway Ranges with Adrian McNulty from 3 Ravens and Ian Morgan from Holgate (pictured above with Luke Scott from Prickly Moses) last week for brew day. Mountain Goat and Bridge Road, two other stalwarts of the Victorian scene and the Showcase, were invited but were unable to attend.
