What at first seemed like a little bit of fun when it was first brewed turned into something of a social masterstroke that’s ballooned to the point where Albo has become Willie The Boatman’s most famous beer.
Albo the beer is a pale ale that pours a pale straw and is hopped with Australia's Ella, and two of the big Cs in Cascade and Centennial. With a light touch of bready malt character, it's an easy drinking affair where the hops bring a bit of of melon, pine and spice.
As for the man, you might have heard of Albo. When this beer was brewed, he was simply the brewery's local Member of Parliament who was known for his support of the craft beer industry, trains and the ocassional spot of DJing. He went on to be the 31st Prime Minister of Australia and his younger self will forever be immortalised in this beer, which sure beats a toilet.
