Launched as a brewing company back in 2009, its co-founder Matt Houghton has made multiple visits to Belgium to visit breweries large and small in an attempt to learn the tricks of the trade. The intention is to release a wide range of Belgian styles, from Australian versions of lambics to bruins and beyond. As such, before he'd even put the first test brew through his brewery, he was already the proud owner of 60 wine barrels and, towards the end of 2015, opened the doors of a dedicated Barrel Room with its own bar in which he plans to have up to 70,000 litres of beer ageing in oak at any one time.
