Barrel Breed Barley Wine 2017

Barley Wine was our first foray into barrel aged beers way back in 2015 and we haven’t looked back since, continuing to expand our Barrel Breed programme each year. For this year’s release we took inspiration from our previous releases but added a new element, using barrels from our good mates at Starward Whisky here in Melbourne.…

Rare Breed Attack of the Killer Hops IPA

Our Brewers love IPAs and the hoppier they are, the better. They’re always pushing for more and more hop flavour and with our latest Rare Breed they’ve taken it to the next level. The combination of Chinook, Amarillo and Citra already delivers big hop flavours, but we’ve gone one step further and added some Calypso into the mix as well, a hop variety we’ve never used in a brew before.…

Good Beer Week 2017

  Good Beer Week is back and we’ve got a cracking line up of Goat events celebrating great craft, great collaborations and great music. Read on to find out where to start your Goat adventure.…

Barrel Breed Plum Sour Ale

We don’t normally brew sour ales here at Goat. In fact, we’ve never brewed a sour before in our near 20 year history. But our brewers are an inquisitive lot and in January 2016 they brewed a kettle sour. The following month, a delivery of Tasmanian Plums took a wrong turn on their way to the farm and ended up on our doorstep.…

Barn Burner Black Saison

You may have noticed some heavy metal riffs in a few of our Rare Breed videos. That was our Brewer Westy, and he was the perfect choice to head up our collaboration brew with Crowbar. Trad and Tyla wanted a beer with a heavy metal twist and Barn Burner Black Saison doesn’t disappoint. Belle Saison and Abbey yeast strains were specially selected to keep the beer light and impart notes of spice and orange peel.…

Trip Trap Triple IPA

Our brewers have gained a bit of a reputation for big IPAs and our latest specialty release is our biggest one yet. Trip Trap Triple IPA leads with a vigorous hop aroma, bursting with citrus, tropical fruit and pine from the mix of Centennial, Columbus, Amarillo and Simcoe. The first taste delivers a quick flash of alcohol and a pleasantly intense bitterness drives the finish.…
