Named in honour of a boozy feral pig who started a fight with a cow. Our custom-made ale for Pig & Duke is an easy drinker with some real character.


Never mind the huge spiders and millions of other things that can kill a human in a heartbeat down under. In 2014 we learnt about a pig who stole 18 beers from a campsite in Western Australia, drank them all, then picked a fight with an innocent cow.


Campers in Port Hedland woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of cans crunching. They shone a light on the pig who was happily finishing up his 18th stolen beer. The drunk pig then took off and raided other campsites. Later he was spotted attacking a cow who chased him around a car. To cool off, he decided to go for a swim in a river before passing out under a tree on the shore.


Authorities were trying to find the Swine for a month after the incident and eventually located him after he was killed by a car on a nearby road. He was identified by distinctive marks on the back of his ears. It is not clear if Swino was under the influence at the time of the accident.
