Hawke’s Brewing Co’s New IPA Helps Support Mangrove Conservation

Fresh from the launch of its excellent Bob Hawke Beer & Leisure Centre in Marrickville, Hawke’s Brewing Co has announced the release of its third vintage of ‘Legend IPA’. In honour of Bob Hawke, the brewer will donate $1 from every can sold to Landcare Australia to support mangrove conversation and enhancement in Queensland.

This vintage is the first brewed in Hawke’s Marrickville brewery, and also the first time it has been released in cans having previously only been available in kegs.

“Every year, we have a unique opportunity to honour Bob’s legacy with a limited release called Legend IPA,” says Hawke’s co-founder, Nathan Lennon.

“This year, we’re reinforcing our ‘Every Sip Gives Back’ promise to Landcare Australia, with $1 from every can sold being provided to fund equipment for the Communities Enhancing Tidal Wetlands project in
Queensland, a state that Bob loved and fiercely defended on the environmental front, from saving the heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest from the logging industry, to expanding the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.”

Hawke’s Legend IPA is available in independent bottleshops in NSW, ACT, and southeast Queensland, as well as Dan Murphy’s in NSW and ACT.
