When it comes to Hawke's Brewing Co, the answer to the obvious question is yes. This brew does indeed pay tribute to former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke, who was known for his hefty love of beer (and for drinking it quickly). And, when the late politician agreed to become involved with the brewery, he decided to donate 100 percent of his royalties to environmental charity Landcare Australia.

That's Hawke's Brewing Co's story, and it's a great one. As for the brews, expect easy-drinking craft beers. That's the case whether you're keen on a lightly bitter lager, a floral-scented pale ale or the hoppy concoction that is the Hawke's Underdog.

And, if you head to the company's online store, you can also peruse its range of merchandise — t-shirts, jumpers, trucker caps, eskys and coolers included.
