Matso’s Broome Brewery
Situated 2,200 kilometres north of Perth, Broome is a beach resort town with an exotic history on the north-west coast of Australia, and the spiritual home of Matso’s Broome Brewery. Built in 1900, and operating as Broome’s first bank, that same building is still standing as Matso’s Broome Brewery today. The site includes Matso’s Store and Cafe as well as the truly micro 200L brewery.
Matso’s Ginger Beer
Matso’s Ginger Beer is the number one best-selling ginger beer in WA and is loved across the country due to its vegan-friendly, gluten-free profile and for its versatile use as a delicious mixer with most spirits.
Made to a well-guarded recipe known only to a select few, Matso’s Ginger Beer is a legend among Kimberley locals and savvy visitors. Those ’in the know’ appreciate that any trip to Broome is not complete without a pint or two of this longstanding favourite.
The beer’s been brewed up at the Broome brewery for 20 years since 1997 and is now, also famous among Greater Australia as it has always been to Broome locals.
Matso’s received a Hong Kong International Beer Award in 2015 for this ginger beer.
