Rory Lobb will face off against his former club Fremantle tomorrow night for the first time, as the Western Bulldogs take on the Dockers at Optus Stadium.

Whilst former coach Justin Longmuir isn't too pressed by the homecoming, some Freo fans have taken it one step further, brewing a limited edition Rory Lobb-inspired beer.

The beer, "Lobster Tears", was brewed in a collaboration between Dingo Brewing and The Restump Podcast and takes aim at his tense departure from the club.

"I was just told sour, raspberry, salty, Rory Lobb flavour," Alan Loveridge from Dingo Brewing told 10 News First Perth.

Whilst originally intended for fans of The Restump Podcast, 400-500 litres of the brew have been made.

"It was really only intended as a bit of a joke for the listeners of the podcast, but it seems to have got a little bit more widespread attention," Restump Podcast host Brett McDonnell said.

Lobb's trade to the Bulldogs came a year after he unsuccessfully requested to leave, having to play at Fremantle for another season.

Lobb had reportedly felt on the outer at the club, yet enjoyed a career-best season in front of goal, kicking 36 goals.

"Rory does strike a cord with most Dockers fans because unlike Acres and Logue and all the rest of the boys that left at the end of last year, he kind of threw a grenade on the bridge as he left didn't he," McDonnell said.

Freo fans will be hoping to celebrate a win tomorrow night with the limited edition beer, McDonnell joking "I think we'll be needing something stronger than beer," if they lose.

Fremantle and the Bulldogs will kick off at 8:10pm (AEST) tomorrow night at Optus Stadium.
