Summer Ale

This week we’re stoked to announce the birth of a new Goat: Summer Ale. This one’s come about after a couple of summers playing around with aromatic, hoppy and sessionable ales like Skipping Girl and Goldilocks. There’s plenty of malted and unmalted wheat in the grist make up, and a big burst of fruity Nelson Sauvin and Motueka hops on the nose. For the tech-heads the numbers are: 20BU, 7EBC, 4.7%ABV. We’re also pretty pumped to have packed it in a 375 ml can, for all your outdoor summer thirst quenching requirements. For a sneak peak drop into the brewery from 5 on Fri 13 Sep. It’ll be out and about thru good stores next week. Please let us know what you think!

    Has arrived in Launceston at the Pizza Pub, on the chill as we speak..

  8. Aaron Says:

    Fantastic to see quality craft beer available in a can.
    Bottles are good, but beer lasts longer, easier to pack when out & about and flavour is better from a can.
    Thank you!!

  9. Dave Says:

    It’s our pleasure aaron.
    Glad you like.

  14. Murf Says:

    This is officially my new favourite beer, I was planing on getting fit this summer but I’ve just brought my 3rd carton in 3 weeks……… It’s going to be a long planing process

  15. Dave Says:

    Thanks Murf!
    You can do both this year…

  16. Tahn Says:

    Hi! Just wondering where I can purchase this?
    Went into Dan Murphy’s Chelsea Heights last night and they are out of stock and couldn’t tell me if they would be getting more – also tried to order online at DM’s and looks like they are out too!
    Cheers Mountain Goat!

  17. Dave Says:

    Hey Than,
    Down that way try Grain & Grape 14-16 Station St Moorabbin. Dan’s should be getting more at some point tho!

  18. Steve Says:

    Hey MG team, I tried this on tap in a pub in and loved it!

    Can’t find it in any Dan Murphy’s in Pert though? Can you point me in the right direction?!


  19. Kat Says:

    Hi there,
    I have only recently discovered your summer ale (love it!) and most places are out of stock (Dan’s and 1st choice).
    Will you definitely be making more??

  20. Dave Says:

    Yes Kat,
    Def making more. You should find it at Dan’s from about now…!

  21. Trav Says:

    Hey guys,

    Awesome to see goat in a can. As much as I prefer drinking from a bottle, convenience and ability to take it to summer festivals is a huge thing.

  22. Dave Says:

    Thanks Travis!
    Glad you like. Appreciate the feedback.

  23. chase Says:

    Hey guys love this beer just bought 2 cartons today in Perth took me ages to find it but can’t get enough of it but was wondering is it a permanent to your range? The guy at the bottle shop said its a one off release I need this confirmed you’s would be crazy not to keep making this beer.great beer.

  24. Dave Says:

    Hey Chase,
    We’re glad you like it!
    I’m afraid for now its only a limited release.

    We do have something else up our sleeve, and Summer Ale will be back this coming spring…

    Hope you can hang on.


  25. Stewie Says:

    Need moar Summer Ale. Was so disappointed to find out Dan’s no longer stocking. Please make this a regular!

  26. Dave Says:

    Hey Stewie,
    Summer isn’t gone for that long…and we’ve Fancy Pants in a can to tide you over…!
    Thanks for the mail and the stoke up.

  27. Ryan Says:

    Hey guys,
    My girlfriend and I absolutely adore this beer, it’s our favourite by far! Is there any chance I could get a more detailed list of ingredients so I could try my hand at brewing a batch to tide us over until it’s available again?

  28. Dave Says:

    Hey Ryan,

    Sure – Pilsener and Wheat Malt (around 20%) – then a bunch of kiwi Motueka and Nelson Sauvin hops late in the whirlpool and fermenter. Low bitterness, high aroma/fruitiness additions.

    Ferment at 21. Don’t filter – drink!
