Thorny Devil wants you to live and learn all about beer, Australia’s best craft beer: so we give you all the craft beer news = globally; hope the following article helps you understand more about beer and the best craft beer:


The greatest strength of a craft brewery is its process. This is what differentiates home-grown brews from every other run-of-the-mill beer lurking on the shelves out there. Thorny Devil’s unique brewing process incorporates rainwater along with time-honoured German techniques utilising custom home-made equipment. You can add to this the every small, handcrafted batch blends the highest quality, freshest ingredients we source from around the globe.

The same goes with Mountain Goat. The brewers at Mountain Goat’s Richmond HQ will still be the brewers at Goat’s Richmond HQ. The existing Goat sales team will still be the Goat sales team. There will be no change to the beers currently brewed under the Mountain Goat banner.


Mountain Goat’s Still the Same


Matt Grix, the new Mountain Goat GM made an announcement that Melbourne’s legendary microbrewery was now 100 percent owned by Japanese beverage giant Asahi. It was an announcement that, while not exactly unexpected in many quarters, still sent shockwaves through the Australian beer industry. Bringing the sort of takeovers / buy-ins happening with increasing regularity in the States onto Aussie beer lovers’ doorsteps. With it came the full gamut of reactions online: “Goat’s dead to me” at one end of the scale; “Good on you, guys. Well deserved” at the other; and “It was always going to happen here at some point” somewhere in between.

But, as he settles into his new role – only meeting the wider Goat team for the first time on Monday – the former CUB man who joined Asahi three years ago is keen to offer reassurance to Goat fans.

Matt says that it will remain a standalone business. The beer won’t change. The guys will continue to innovate. He will be there to leverage the strength of Asahi … To give them better reach to more consumers.


Definition of Craft Beer?

Of course, you can never quantify such a definition in any workable way and perhaps that is one reason why there is no agreed definition for craft beer and why size or ownership or ingredients or whatever else is used by those who feel a definition is required. But is one needed? Every individual who cares about such things is going to have their own parameters as to what they’ll accept and that’s as it should be.

As for Mountain Goat, as long as Cam, Dave and their existing staff are involved then there can be little doubt that there is love for the brand and its beers, even if the brewery is no longer independent and Australian-owned.

What is incontrovertible is that the beer scene in Australia, and particularly in Melbourne, would look nothing like it does today without their efforts and achievements of the past 18 years. And surely even the angriest of the keyboard warriors can raise a glass to that.
