Hi, we're Dan, Eddie and Govs
In July of 2014, we sat at a bar talking about brewing a homebrew beer, an Eggnog Stout. 2 years later, we'd opened our own brewery on the Gold Coast in Australia called Black Hops.
It’s been an epic journey, from the infamous “little situation” in China, to a collaboration with Call of Duty, the biggest entertainment franchise on earth, and finally - launching a brewery.
We've shared every story and lesson learned along the way in the Operation Brewery book. The book tells our story but also gives you everything we can think
