Hairyman Brewery Follets Fable Pacific Lager (330ml)Hairyman Brewery
In July 1791 while exploring the Hawkesbury River system, Matthew Follet’s small boat became separated from his companions.
After days of frantic search, they found him on a river bank far down-stream, bedraggled, red-eyed and with a shocking story.
He had been passing through a wild, narrow gorge when a monstrous ‘Hairyman’ had descended on him and forced his boat against the rocks.
Follet had hammered the bugger, but with the vessel fatally holed he had just one option: two barrels, lashed together and emptied of their contents (the expedition’s ration of cool, clear satisfying Pacific Lager), had made a crude but effective raft to escape on. In view of all that Follet had gone through, it was thought best to cut short the expedition.
