Black Dog Brewery’s Second Birthday

Black Dog Brewery

With its second birthday fast approaching, what was one of Australia’s tiniest breweries has started cranking beers out of a shiny new Italian brewery. Black Dog Brewery was launched in November 2011 by fourth generation winemaker James Booth. At his family’s winery, Taminick Cellars, just outside Glenrowan in northeast Victoria. He was operating on a 70 litre kit back then. The beers making their way into the world now are the first produced on a setup that’s approximately 15 times bigger.

James said it only took a few months to realise that he needed a new brewery. Thus, he noted while taking a break from the bottling line he operates with his dad. Different bars and bottleshops were on the phone trying to suss out when they could get hold of beers. He didn’t want to send stuff only for them to find out there was no more beer [when they reordered].


The Bumper Vintage

Black Dog took a back seat for a while earlier in the year with the winery enjoying a bumper vintage this year. The commissioning of the Lainox brewery in a new building took a little longer than planned. But, having first used the Italian company’s tanks in the winery, he says it took no time. Only a little bit of tweaking of hop additions – to get it up and running once the switches were flicked.

First off, James is looking to restock the select bars and bottleshops. He has an existing relationship with around Melbourne, as well as the restaurants and cafes around his local region in north-east Victoria. There will be much more Black Dog to go around. With the ability to fill tanks with up to 30 times the amount of beer he used to produce in a day.
