Mt Macedon dominates the landscape overlooking the Holgate brewery. It’s massive, moody and magnificent – not to mention insanely popular with tourists and locals alike. No wonder they named it after our beer!
The perfect Holgate family holiday? A US Pacific North-West beer tour, of course. Result? Our 2009 odyssey to hop heaven lives on in this tribute to the spiritual home of craft beer.
Your new best friend. A long-standing favourite among beer enthusiasts and our most awarded beer. A classic earthy English bitter you meet in the pub and invite home for a round of snooker and darts.
Some beers just won't take no for an answer. A sultry seducer, this luscious winter warmer infused with Dutch cocoa and whole vanilla beans takes an old story somewhere new and bewitching.
Paul’s dad, Bernie Holgate, was an adventurer at heart. He loved riding his Norton and grabbed life by the horns. Norton Lager pays tribute to Bernie and his freewheeling, risk-taking spirit. Locally grown hops transform this classic Munich Helles lager into the ultimate Australian session beer.
Give in to the Prince of Darkness and drown your senses with this wickedly assertive ale. Rich, strong and complex, this is a bold beer for special occasions and a devil-may-care spirit.
Big sister to our Temptress chocolate porter. Mature. Well built. An experienced mix of vanilla, dutch cocoa and locally roaster coffee beans. Not to be taken lightly.
Like a plump monk with a taste for the finer things, this not-so-traditional ale leaps from the middle ages to the 21st century with a double helping of dense, punchy flavours that will fortify your soul.
While cranking out our everyday beers, hoppy sensations or traditional styles, the Holgate brew-team dream up methods, styles and interpretation for our Special Reserve series – occasion beers, with character, depth of flavour, often designed for longevity and with alternative techniques and ingredients. These beers are brewed once per year, often in small discreet batches….. more for brewers pleasure than commercial sales.
