Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer
BARONGAROOK WEST, Victoria 3249
For most people, being in the wettest part of Victoria would be cause for complaint. Not Luke Scott, head brewer at Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beers, who has an impressive water harvesting system and a pair of 150,000 tanks at his disposal to capture the pure rainwater from the Otway Rainforest. This pure water is used to brew the Prickly Moses beers, ensuring they are truly a product of the Otways. Water is the key!
At Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer, we believe that beer is diverse in its colour, aroma and flavour and is not just limited to "yellow fizzy stuff". We create beers to match an appearance, aroma and flavour profile - not a budget - so we use the best possible ingredients we can find. After many years of research and many samples of beer, our repertoire of exciting beer recipes continuously grows, ranging from an organic pilsner through to a stout, ginger beer, a popular Belgian style wheat beer, and much more.
The brewery, which takes its name from a native plant local to the area, is well worth a visit. Sat on the edge of the beautiful Otway Ranges National Park and less than 50km from the Surf Coast, it has three holiday cottages onsite with views over the rolling countryside as well as a "Brewery Outlet". If you want to go a step further, you can sign up for residential beer courses and learn to brew hands on. Give us a call to organise a brewery tour for you and your friends at Otway Estate or brew your own beer at our micro-brewery in Queenscliff, at the Queenscliff Brewhouse. And if you head to one of the many Australian craft beer festivals, look out for our Prickly Moses bus...
We hope you enjoy our beer as much as we enjoy brewing it for you.
