Boatrocker Brewers & Distillers’ Matt Houghton on a decade of eclectic drinks: Season Three, Episode Four

Boatrocker‘s sour and strong ales are undoubtedly some of Australia’s finest.

The company is home to one of the largest barrel-ageing facilities in Australian brewing, which you can visit at Braeside in Melbourne’s south east.

Founded in 2009 by Matt and Andrea Houghton, the brewery is also excelling at the more commonly available lagers, pale ales and IPAs.

And in 2017, Boatrocker Brewing became Boatrocker Brewers & Distillers, as the Perth-based distillery Hippocampus was merged into the Boatrocker business, opening up a whole new array of experimentation.
