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!
