Dream Weaver Hazy IPA is BACK!

Dream Weaver Hazy IPA is BACK!

As things begin to warm up and Spring does it’s thing, we wanted to brew a hazy IPA and when we looked at pulling together a recipe it was hard to go past Dream Weaver Hazy IPA. We hear people ask about it, it placed in the GABS Hottest 100 and the Crafty Pint Beers of the Year - so we thought we’d bring it back for a National Limited Release. Our Craft Beer fans wanted to see it and we wanted to drink it.

We’ve tweaked the designs on the cans but the recipe is about 95% the same, if anything we’ve learned a few things from our brewers notes - MASSIVE Dry Hop additions but time has been key to do this hazy justice.

Launching in time for the Long Weekend, it landed in Vic first in time for the shut down this Friday with the rest of Oz seeing cans and kegs arrive.

We’ve got a few launch events locked in, with a few more to follow.

The Scratch in Brisbane 27th with 5 taps pouring

Far Side Beers in Vic also doing a Grand Final Friday party

And Modus HQ fresh at the brewery - you can grab cans too.

On the 3rd October we’ve got a launch at Beer Cartel

4th October West Thebby Social Club in SA + New Brighton Hotel in Manly

Plus pouring at Happy Wombat, Newcastle and The Union 10th October

A Declaration of Independence.

As most of you know, Modus remains proudly independent. Which means it is still owned and operated by Jaz & Grant Wearin, who began the business 5 years ago. Modus is run by a small team of around 30, spread from office duties to brewery, venue and sales. Jaz & Grant are still very much hands on, and remain active members of the team on a day to day basis.

As the new 375ml cans rolled out earlier in the year, you’d notice a new addition to the cans. The Independent Brewers Associations (IBA) Independence Seal.

This seal is designed to help Australian owned independent breweries differentiate themselves from those owned by multi-national beer companies. This seal also assists Aussie craft beer fans to easily identify local and independent breweries and encourage consumers to #askforindiebeer.


As BrewCon 2019 opened this week, we wanted to work with Liquex Logistics, and the Independent Brewers Association, to celebrate all things independent.

The name Liquex Logistics may not mean much to you now, but this company has very much the same M.O. as we do here at Modus Operandi, and we’re proud to partner up with them for the Indie Awards season this year. Based in Melbourne VIC, Liquex Logistics have been providing warehouse and logistic solutions to the beverage industry for over 30 years.

As you may know, we cold store and cold transport all our products so consumers are getting the freshest product available. This isn’t something we take lightly, and we’ve even converted our delivery truck into a roving cool room. So this partnership was destined to happen.

We also worked with local Melbourne artist, Keo Match, who created an amazing mural for us, on the side of the Liquex Logistics warehouse in Sunshine West, VIC. Keo is an Australian Creative & Painter. He is skilled in the art of illustration, graphic design and even animation. Go and have a look at what else this legend does at www.keomatch.com.au

In a final sign off to Indie Beer, we are extremely proud to report Modus picked up the Champion IPA award last night for Former Tenant Red IPA at the Indie Beer Awards. This is the fourth time Modus has picked up the Champion Australian IPA award which we are very chuffed about! The atmosphere at last nights awards was contagious with a great outlook for Indie Beer in Australia. Watch this space!

The week that was

Well, don’t we have a lot to reflect on this week! Not only did we celebrate 5 years of Modus, we also held an in house IPA Masterclass to celebrate International IPA Day! We just wanted to thank each and every person who not only made it to one, or both of these events, but who wished us a Happy Birthday and helped Modus become what it is today!

We had an AMAZING turn out for our 5th Birthday, which saw 5 brand new beers, 2 amazing musical acts and a roving magician. Team M.O. worked around the clock to ensure this was a birthday that was not forgotten in a hurry!

We were joined by Morton Choppers, who wooed us throughout the afternoon until we were joined by the Rockabilly Gods known as The Van Demons. These guys know how to bring the noise! While the night went on, we had Magician Eric Kwok roving between guests and wowing the audience with some of the most insane acts we’ve ever seen.

We also teamed up with In an Instant Photo Booth so we could ensure everyone took home a little of the #modusturnsfive celebrations with them.

Check out our new Facebook photo album now!

Stay tuned for an update on our Fathers Day activities, and Modus Markets on the 25th of August.

Here’s cheers for 5 more years!
