A New Modern Aussie Lager
GOAT stands apart from the rest of the herd. It’s an uncomplicated, anytime sort of beer with a Mountain Goat twist. Thanks to a generous allotment of Australian Galaxy and Ella hops and a painstaking fermentation schedule we’ve landed on this clean, balanced lager. It’s one very enjoyable beer.
Have you ever thought that maybe, Spiderman’s uncle got it right? “With great power comes great responsibility”. We think he did. So we are putting our money where our mouths are, and pledging to buy you a goat to donate (A Real Life Living Goat, that will provide a family in need in a developing nation with 11,000 litres of milk – not bad huh?) when you buy a carton of GOAT Lager (actually Very Enjoyable Beer, btw).
Do good, be good, be the GOAT.

Mountain Goat is a Melbourne based brewery born from a suburban home-brew project dating back to 1997. Best mates – Cam and Dave decided their city needed to lift its craft beer game when Cam was away on a beer pilgrimage backpacking around Vancouver. A single postcard was sent home to Dave (who was already messing about with a bit of amateur brewing) and the first Goat backyard brewing project began shortly after with the boys hoping of one day, creating a full scale brewery.
18 years later, after being knocked back by countless banks having a combined list of assets boasting two mountain bikes, a couple of surfboards and Dave’s Holden, these two best mates managed to realise their dream largely through crowd-funding from their close friends and family. Finally, after much anticipation, Mountain Goat Brewery rams its way into existence on the Melbourne craft scene. The brewery continues to operate today alongside a bar and tucked away in a warehouse in the back streets of Richmond, Victoria. Mountain Goat now employs 25 full time staff and ship their handcrafted beers across the country and to some overseas markets.
