Multinational beer companies and obscure microbreweries aren't supposed to get on. Yet sometimes the love of good beer can conquer all.
That's what happened for Australia's inaugural Good Beer Week when brewers from fledgling brewery Moon Dog and Matilda Bay, the craft beer arm of the Foster's giant, joined forces with Melbourne brewing legends Mountain Goat to create a one-off collaborative brew, a never-to-be-named Belgian Dubbel featuring enough raisins to ruin a blender, dark muscovado sugar and Belgian waffles.

Good Beer Week is from May 16 to 22 in Melbourne - goodbeerweek.com. The beer is launched at Mountain Goat on May 18.
