There’s plenty of reasons to love ex-PM Bob Hawke. Environmental activist, euthanasia ambassador, spokesperson for interfaith discourse, and lover of bevvies.
Formerly a world record holder for the fastest yard glass scull (which he actually cites as a major factor in himself being elected Prime Minister), Australia had a late-order love affair with Hawke after he started publicly sculling schooeys at the cricket “for the country”.
Bob Hawke has joined Violent Soho, Dune Rats and DZ Deathrays in receiving the highest Australian citizen honour: his very own brew.
Hawke’s own brew, aptly named Hawke’s Lager, is reportedly pouring at The Clock in Surry Hills, but expect this to spread like wildfire with an ambassador of such high regard in the beer realm.
All the proceeds from the lager will contribute to Landcare Australia, a movement for agricultural sustainability Hawke has been championing for years.
