Beer Tasting at the Matilda Bay Brewhouse

With its sweeping scenery and charming collection of centuries-old vineyards, the Hunter Valley makes a memorable mark on Australia’s wine scene. But, if you’re more of a beer drinker, you’re in luck. Over the last ten years, this part of Australia has been making strides in the craft beer world, and it now has a number of traditional and contemporary brew houses dotted around the landscape.

One of these is the Matilda Bay Brewhouse. The venue originally started its journey as the Bluetongue Brewery back in 2001, but has since become known as the Matilda Bay Brewhouse.

You can still experience glimpses of the past, though, as there is a just a single glass wall that separates visitors from the original on-site Brewhouse. For those who have spent the day swilling wine around their mouths, a refreshing glass of beer is the perfect way to finish up.

There are plenty of ways to enjoy the homemade beer on-site. Start by trying the Beer Tasting Paddle, where you’ll be served up a tray of 12 different and tasty brews. During the session, you’ll learn more about each and every beer, discovering the unique methods used to create them and the distinct ingredients that go into their flavours.

It’s not just beer that visitors can enjoy on site, though. The Brewhouse also makes and sells a variety of different alcoholic ginger beers, lagers, ales, stouts, and ciders. And, if you’re feeling hungry, there is a delectable menu in the restaurant that promises a selection of treats that pair up perfectly with the beverages you’ll be knocking back.

Over the years, the Matilda Bay Brewhouse has produced some of the country’s best-loved beers and ciders, with a number of specialty flavours thrown in for good measure. They’ve won awards and trophies for their unique brewing methods and distinct flavours, and continue to imbue a sense of Australia’s countryside into each and every product.

The Hunter Valley may well be known for its vineyards and sweeping views, but there’s so much more to it than that. The brewery scene is a fairly new step for the valley, but it’s already thriving and producing some of the best flavours in the world. Become a part of the movement by trying some of the unique flavours at the Matilda Bay Brewhouse and learning all about how the Hunter Valley has become an important part of the craft beer scene in Australia and beyond.
