One of Port Stephen’s best establishments is hoping to give craft beer novices a taste of what is to come.

Murray’s Craft Brewing Co., already renowned for their Angry Man Pale Ale and hand craft Whale Ale, have concocted a new brew aimed at enticing new drinkers into the specialist beer market.

“Moon Boy is a beer for everyone,” said brewery owner Murray Howe when describing his company’s first try at Golden Ale.

But Howe hopes it might be the drop that encourages Australians to try more craft beer.

“Moon Boy is a very drinkable, session strength Golden Ale for craft beer lovers, and also a great way for mainstream beer drinkers to explore flavour and start their craft beer adventure,” he said.

Murray’s tried the ale in draught form and found its popularity warranted a wider distribution.

At 4.5%, Murray’s Moon Boy Golden Ale is light, has a deliciously dry finish, and is
naturally cloudy and unfiltered. It has a very light German Pilsner malt backbone with a crisp, dry, finish.

Extensive dry hopping with the New Zealand grown Pacifica hop gives a late tropical fruit aroma to spice things up - but without too much residual hop bitterness.
