Using the only decent Christmas present his mum ever gave him – a home brew kit in 2008 – Dan Dainton started his brewing saga punching out some pretty horrible tasting home-brews from his shed in Brunswick West.
In fact the first beer was so bad that it was called the Flithy Lager or “Flager”. The beers eventually started getting better as Dan was fired by his uncle from his sales job and started working in a home-brew shop. The mission was clear: learn how to make the best beer possible. With help from the guys at the shop and teachings from the Federation Uni brewing course the beers started to go from fairly offensive to the tongue to quite drinkable.
See, we weren’t kidding, it is a long story.
