Beers from Tasmania
Moo Brew was started on a whim: David Walsh - professional Tasmanian gambler - got a little drunk somewhere in Eastern Europe, found a bottle he liked and decided to build a brewery to fill it (as you do). He already had a foot in the booze pond, having bought one of Tasmania's oldest wineries - Moorilla Estate - in the nineties, so a brewery probably made sense as well. Initially built on site at Moorilla (which David called Moo Land - hence Moo Brew) the brewery was very fancy, very small and quite weird, but it was built with quality and a local focus in mind. Moo Brew set out to create the best versions of classic beer styles, but wasn't afraid to sometimes tweak a few fundamentals and bend some rules here and there. Now into our 18th year, that attitude plus a growing appetite for experimentation has borne fruit and some bloody good brews.
