My guest in this episode, Dave MacGill from Moo Brew, is a pillar of the brewing community in Tasmania and has worked for over a decade in one of the first craft breweries established in the state.
Moo Brew appeared in local bottleshops and high end grocery stores in 2005, selling its flavoursome ales in fancy bottles with labels designed by artist John Kelly…it’s fair to say that it was a little bit of a shock to the traditional mainstream drinker in Tasmania who were used to picking between the Draught Beer from either the North or the South of the state.
But somehow it worked, and drinkers began enjoy what a Pale Ale should be, how a true Pilsener tasted and the joys that could be found in a Dark Ale. After helping to establish Moo Brew, Dave moved to Melbourne for a few years where he set up Temple Brewery. In 2013, he returned to Tasmania, and Moo Brew, to take up the position of General Manager and lead the now well established brewery into the future in a very competitive market.
Dave has been heavily involved in the Aussie brewing industry for many years in many different capacities, brewer, general manager and Vice President of the Tassie Independent Brewers Association.
Enjoy the episode!
