The Oddbins Take

The Hoppy Botanist IPA is one of Campervan's series of experimental beers. It was brewed using fresh rhubarb and vanilla pods to perfectly capture the flavour of rhubarb and custard sweets. Close your eyes and take in a big ol' whiff and you'll be transported back to your childhood sweetshop!

About The Brewery

Paul Gibson, The Campervan Brewery's founder, led a fairly normal life with his wife and two children until family illnesses turned things on their head, resulting in a six-month career break to care for his wife and young daughter. During this tough time, Paul was able to reflect on life and decide on what was most important to him and his family. He also turned his hobby of home brewing into a form of respite, soon deciding to take his passion for beer to the next level.

He started to brew in his garage whenever he had the chance. Over time, he has perfected his brewing techniques by studying the art behind crafting great beer. Before long, The Campervan Brewery was dreamt up and Paul converted his garage to allow him to hand craft small batches. He also began the conversion of a 1973 VW Campervan to house a fully mobile brew kit, and equipped to dispense beer. The van is aptly named 'The Hoppy Camper', or 'Olive' by his children!
