"Dry, angry and bitter, Hornet has some serious sting with a balancing aroma of stone and citrus fruits. This modern IPA drinks with a subtle sweetness and a sturdy presence of hop bitterness." - Black Hops
What are we getting? Lovely golden colour, and delightfully see through. Black Hops Hornet is a very well balanced IPA, with a soft bitterness that lasts just long enough.
How should you drink this brew and with what? This is a fridge filler IPA. Grab a 4 pack and have it any time you’re feeling thirsty. Although it’s an IPA, its approachability would also make it a great beach or BBQ beer (just watch the abv, it can sneak up on you after a few!)
Who is this beer for? The aforementioned approachability of the Hornet makes this great for anyone ready to step into the ring with the current king of beer styles, but it’s also a great mainstay for anyone that’s gone plenty of rounds with IPAs in the past.
Is this beer readily available? Black Hops has one of the best core ranges in QLD, and you can bet your left sock that the Hornet is in there and available year round.
Why do we like this beer? IPA’s are a dime a dozen nowadays, and with the ever changing/evolving world of Hazy IPA’s, it’s great to have a staple that’s delicious, hoppy, and damn near see through.
Black Hops was started in 2014 by three mates on the Gold Coast as a gypsy outfit. Fast forward 5 years they now have 3 breweries and a wall full of trophies including Australia's 2018 AIBA Champion Small Brewery and 2019 and 2021 RQFWS Champion Brewery. We love their hop forward approach to brewing and their openness to sharing their journey and knowledge to adoring fans.

We’re Antoinette, Natasha, Matt and Simon. We’re good booze lovers just like you. We started our beery journey in 2013 when we opened the famous Brewski on Brisbane’s infamous Caxton Street. In 2018 we opened our first My Beer Dealer under Brewski, it’s one of the few drink-in bottle shops in Queensland and we’re super chuffed with it. 2020 was a big year for us, we launched our online store (you’re looking at it) and opened our second bricks ‘n mortar shop next to Eagle Junction station in Brisbane’s Clayfield (we’re super chuffed with it as well). Both of these have allowed us to complement our awesome beer range with our other passions of good wine and good spirits.
As we’re a small family run business we prefer to support other family businesses and small producers, ensuring that when you visit us it’s not the same old, same old. And by shopping with us we hope you get to feel good about supporting a whole heap of small businesses, just like we do. So if you do choose to buy through us, thank you from us and thank you from our family of suppliers (and thanks for reading this far, our copywriter is stoked).
