No fuss, no fancy names – just good beer

ABV – 4.8%


Warming and lightly smoked, this ale was inspired by the brewers’ homeland, where traditional Irish Reds are shared in front of a roaring turf fire on a wet winters night.

Using Manuka smoked malt & presenting toffee notes and a burnished red appearance, this is the Emerald Isle in a glass.

Hops – East Kent Golding

ABV – 4.9%


Smooth, approachable and no fuss – just like those hailing from the Emerald Isle.

The big brother to the Bitter Ale, the Pale Ale was dry hopped using Equinox giving it a wee tropical-tinged treat that’s a glowing golden in colour, bursting with subtle pink grapefruit & mango.

Hops – Equinox, Cascade, Nugget

ABV – 3.5%


Gundy likes a beer. In his younger days, he liked a full-strength beer, especially after a good day’s work.

You know Gundy – he works hard, bit of a larrikin and no nonsense. These days, he’s a little older and wiser. He still likes a good tasting beer, but he’s a little more responsible.

So Gundy’s daughter – his “Wee One” made a beer for him. Why brew beer if you can’t make one for your dad. 

With notes of tangelo, passionfruit, citrus and pine this Mid Strength is wee on alcohol but big on taste. Straw in colour – fresh and refreshing

Hops – Waimea, Cascade, Galaxy, Citra and Warrior

hop & clover brewing co - mudgee honey ginger beer
ABV – 3.5%


The Aussie sun is not made for gingers. The Emerald Isle is the natural home of the gingers – with its moody skies, rain and windswept beaches. So we made a drink for all gingers to enjoy – out of the Aussie sun.

Made with lemon myrtle, crushed ginger & golden bush honey from the Mudgee Raw Honey Co & Moothi Estate, Mudgee

Refreshingly spicy and a wee bit wild – like the fierce Aussie sun.

Release late October 2021

About Us

An Irish man walks into a bar… a classic start to every Irish joke. Only this time, said Irishman meets an Aussie and they fall in love. Owners Dave Henderson and Shiree Phillips met in Sydney a few moons ago and they bonded over their love of the amber ale.

In 2016, Dave bought a brewery in Orange off Gumtree Australia (without his wife knowing) to make homebrew in a shed in the backyard of their home in Sydney, NSW. They embarked on making Aussie beer without bullshit with a touch of Irish Charm – just approachable & friendly, like those hailing from the Emerald Isle.

In their previous lives, Dave spent 22 years sailing the seven seas with the British Royal Navy and Royal Australian Navy as Petty Officer in Marine Engineer.

Shiree has spent the last 20 years in events, operations and marketing in fine dining hospitality, wine and universities including Quay Restaurant, UNSW Australia, Charles Darwin University and Colin Fassnidge’s pub group.

Dave hails from Derry, Northern Ireland and Shiree is from Mudgee, NSW. After living in Darwin, NT they now call Mudgee home.

Hop and Clover Brewing Co are proud Gypsy Brewers making beers that are no fuss, no fancy names – just good beer

  • Who Brews Hop & Clover Beers?
    May 20, 2019, by Mick Wust Plenty of people have made a big purchase without telling their spouse. But we doubt too many people have bought a brewery that way. After a number of years in the Navy, Dave Henderson worked on patrol boats as a contractor in Darwin. But it turns out there’s not much to do during the wet season in Darwin. So Dave took up homebrewing from extract as a way to […]
  • Our Story
    Our wee operation started in 2017 with two couples, Matt & Stacey and Shiree & Dave, over beers creating Hop and Clover Brewing Co. At the start of 2019, Matt and Stacey felt they could not dedicate the time and decided to move away from the business. We have been very fortunate to have their unwavering assistance, impressive skills and amazing ideas over the last couple of years. So now, it’s just Dave and Shiree. […]
