The Alphonse: Now Available Interstate

Here at Goat we get very excited about our new releases and can’t wait for launch night, but we realise that not everyone can make it down to the brewery. Our latest limited release, The Alphonse India Amber Ale, has so far only been available at the brewery but this Friday night we’ve teamed up with some mates for exclusive launch nights across the country.…

The Alphonse India Amber Ale

If you’ve ever been down to the brewery you may have noticed an unusual goat-figure standing proudly by the tanks. That’s Alphonse. Alphonse is constructed wholly from ex-brewery parts that have been collected over the years. In fact, some parts of Alphonse are even older than Mountain Goat as we know it, starting their journey over 20 years ago when Dave was homebrewing in his back garden.…

Barrel Breed Imperial Stout

Introducing our second release of an Imperial Stout in our Barrel Breed program. Once again using Lark Distillery barrels, this is a traditional English-style Imperial Stout with a whisky twist. Think dark chocolate and whisky merrily together in your mouth. It’s an extremely full-bodied, rich beer, high in alcohol. We think it best when poured into a glass and shared.…

Goat Pop In

  Mountain Goat has been brewing craft beers in Richmond since 1997, but it’s been a very long time since we’ve opened our doors to the public on a weekend. On Saturday 30 July we are doing just that, joined by our mates at Exit Brewing, BrewCult and Fury & Son to create one heck of a beer line-up.…

Captain Amylase Rum Porter

Malt, hops, yeast and water. That’s all our brewers need to make great beer. Well, that’s what they have us think… Our latest Rare Breed is dedicated to the unsung hero of the brewing process: amylase, or Captain Amylase, as we like to call him. Amylase is an enzyme that naturally occurs in the malt, breaking down the carbohydrates into sugar, which feeds the yeast and kick starts fermentation.…

2016 Barley Wine

The Goat brewers have been playing around with oak barrels for a few years – we are fascinated by the influence oak can have on beer, or whisky and wine for that matter. In 2015 we brewed our first barley wine in old whisky barrels from Lark Distillery in Tasmania and were pretty chuffed with results, especially when it won Best in Show at the Australian International Beer Awards.…

Good Beer Week 2016

Join Mountain Goat at events all over Melbourne, including the sixth Abbey Collaby release at our place. Find out where you can get your Goat on and why Good Beer Week is bigger than Christmas…

The Zymurgist IPA

A zymurgist is scientist who studies the chemical process of fermentation in brewing and distilling, so by extension, the term also refers to a brewer.

Japanese Cowboy

On our 18th year in existence Goat Beer was acquired by Japanese brewer, Asahi. Nothing much has changed around here, but our brewers have tipped their hats to Asahi’s heritage with this limited release Rare Breed.

Alana Banana

Alana Banana is a refreshing, crisp wheat beer, with unique, subtle banana & clove aroma and flavour. It’s a one-off In-Breed, brewed in Richmond by our forkie and assistant brewer, Alana. She may or may not be German, but she definitely brewed this beer and it definitely has banana characters.
