Do you open the brewery to public?
Absolutely. We’re open every Fri eve from 5pm. We have all our beers on tap (including one off crazy batches) and we make good pizzas too. Wed nights we also open from 5 and you can get a free tour at 6:30pm. We’re usually brewing Wed nights so it’s a great time to see, hear and smell new batches of Goat coming into the world. We’re at 80 North St, Richmond.
Do you sell drinks other than beer at the bar?
Yep we have some good Australian whites and reds and the excellent Two Step Apple Cider. Also have David Baker’s locally distilled specialty single malt whiskies and his gin and vodka. Soft drinks too.
How do you get the goat into the beer?
The truth is we don’t actually put goats in our beer.
Why don’t you brew the Surefoot Stout year round?
We like the idea of having special beers coming out in certain seasons of the year and the Surefoot really fits well with the colder winter months.
Why don’t you have bands play at the brewery?
We’d love to but we have residents living close by and we have a condition on our planning permit that says we cannot host live music.
Did you start out as homebrewers?
Yes, it all started in Dave’s backyard in Elsternwick. We’ve still got some detailed brewing journals highlighting the highs and lows of Dave’s early work. Some of his hits were the Salmon’s Runnin’ Stout, Leroy Brown Ale and the Black Dog Dark Brown.

So why Mountain Goat?
A mountain goat’s a big hairy animal that’s never gonna fall over.
