Since start-up in 1999 in Paul and Natasha Holgate’s backyard, Holgate Brewhouse brewing company has been producing genuine craft beer from the village of Woodend in Victoria. Brewed, bottled and kegged right here, Holgate’s beers come straight to you from its family-owned brewery.
The team make their beers entirely themselves, bold and brimming with character, carefully constructed with authentic, natural ingredients. No preservatives. No chemicals. No pasteurisation. Just years of brewing lore and an uncompromising approach.
Style: Helles Lager ABV: 4.3%
Tasting notes from the brewer: The beer is brewed with 100% malt (without the adjuncts many of the mass market breweries use) and has some nice Australian dry-hopping at the end, to add the Holgates’ own little twist to it. The lager has just the right amount of bitterness, with a dry finish.
