MATSO’S BROOME BREW­ERY

Broome Advertiser - - MATSO’S BROOME BREWERY -

Be­ing the most re­mote brew­ery in Aus­tralia is cer­tainly a chal­lenge at times but the Matso’s team love their spir­i­tual home in Broome. Matso’s Broome brew­ery as we know it be­gan in 2000 when Martin and Kim Peir­son-Jones took over a truly mi­cro 200l brew­ery that was also a café and art gallery. In 2004 the Broome brew­ery un­der­went an up­grade to a full mash brew­ery so that it could pro­duce 1200L of beer at a time. With Martin’s son PJ (Martin Jnr) also in the busi­ness, what was a small fam­ily owned café brew­ery was quickly be­com­ing fa­mous for its beer and de­mand grew so that the fam­ily de­cided to start hand bot­tling the beers. Now the brew­ery is fa­mous for its Ginger Beer and Mango Beer along with the ice-hot Chilli Beer and a range of seven prod­ucts now avail­able in bot­tleshops around Aus­tralia! It’s still a fam­ily owned busi­ness and the three gen­er­a­tions of fam­ily still live here in Broome and are of­ten seen at Matso’s af­ter a hard day’s work. Now as one of Broome’s most fa­mous man-made attractions, the brew­ery is known for its laid back at­mos­phere, food and, of course, beer. Live mu­sic in the court­yard can be heard on Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day af­ter­noons with a va­ri­ety of vis­it­ing artists along with performances from great lo­cal tal­ent. The Matso’s Curry Hut is open seven days a week in the court­yard dur­ing the dry sea­son. It of­fers au­then­tic Indian cui­sine some­times cooked with Matso’s beers (dare to try one with the Chilli Beer!) Tap beers will change slightly from sea­son to sea­son, de­pend­ing on what the Head Brewer has been up to! You can al­ways get your favourites Ginger Beer, Mango Beer, Hit the Toad Lager and Bishop’s Best Dark Lager along with sea­sonal beers like the re­cent Cop­per­head In­dia Pale Ale plus Chilli and Ly­chee!
