For their fourth “Shake” release (brewed for Winter 2019) 3 Ravens decided to answer the cries of the fans out there and revisit their 2018 GABS beer – Moussey Juicy – albeit with a few tweaks and a new hop bill. Choc Mint Shake features a creamy base of oats, wheat and Munich malt, with dark crystal malts and lightly roasted malts intertwined with dutch cocoa. The signature lactose-and-vanilla combo are supported by natural chocolate and mint flavours to give the impression of one of the all time classic milkshake flavours. Featuring Sabro hops – with unique creamy and oak-like vanillin characteristics as well as tropical fruit, with supporting roles from NEIPA staple Citra, as well as German Perle hops which lend herbal and mint-like freshness.
Based in Thornbury VIC, 3 Ravens has been knocking out craft beer since 2003. They’re dedicated to brewing unique beers of distinct character and quality.

3 Ravens were one of the first to install a traditional, English-style hand pump into a Melbourne pub. They also turn their hands to all manner of limited releases, from past favourites such as the Ale Noir – their Dark smoke beer aged in a French oak barrel previously used for pinot noir – and the Ravenator Bock to popular repeats like the USB and more recent beasts such as the whisky barrel-aged Black Mass and Pedro Ximinez aged Druid.
