The September 11 attacks? A plot by the CIA. The moon landings? Staged in the American desert by the US government. What about the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy? Despite every government authority that examined the investigation of the death concluding that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone when he fired three shots from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, it was reported recently that 63% of Americans still believe there was another shooter on the grassy knoll! Unfortunately, as we've all embraced the existence of wild plots and cover-ups, we have given the word 'conspire' a bad rap. Aside from working in secret to do evil, the other definition in the Oxford dictionary is ‘to act in harmony towards a common end.’ This take on 'conspire' inspired Jacqui Sacco, Tim Martin, and Maggie & Deon Smit to name their new venture Co-Conspirators Brewing Company.
Initial meeting at one of Melbourne's homebrew clubs, after finding success in a few competitions, they turned to professional brewing. Separately having ideas about starting up a brewery, the two couples discovered that they shared similar thoughts when sitting down for a few beers together one afternoon. It was the moment that a conspiracy was born. Partnering with brewers and breweries, the group spent the first 5 years learning and conspiring with others to make great beer before, in late 2021, finding a home of their own.
Twenty-four taps now pour some of countries best hop-driven beers from the converted engineering workshop that once forged our nation's early tramlines. One beer that quickly clears out those taps is this double hazy IPA. The Fall Guy's annual release takes the fan favourite Matriarch NEIPA and dials it into a more considerable and boozier territory. Hopped with El Dorado, Mosaic, Azacca and Idaho 7, it is loaded with tropical flavours and aromas dominated by orange, mango and peach. The 8.3% ABV provides a booze warmth matched flawlessly with a thick and creamy mouthfeel.
Given the overwhelming desire for another, perhaps they've covertly added a secret chemical agent into the brew to trick your brain into thinking that one isn't enough?
