Brewing Process

What makes a beer "boutique?" A boutique beer is produced in small batches, all natural and has no preservatives. Mudgee Brewing Company founder and chief brewer, Gary Leonard, believes that two things influence the way a genuine boutique beer is crafted - local water and local tastes. With that in mind, Gary and the team at Mudgee Brewing Co have created a great range of beautifully balanced beers and the locals give them two thumbs up. For those of us who may not be as 'beer-wise' as Gary, here are some of the important things to know about brewing the perfect boutique beer.

Our Signature Beers

Mudgee Lite 2.6%

This beer is full bodied and flavoursome, not an easy thing to achieve in a light beer. It is dark amber in colour and the flavours are generated by the addition of Rye in the mash.

Mudgee Mud 8.5%

Mudgee Mud is an imperial stout weighing in at an impressive 8.5% ABV. It is a rich and smooth stout which boasts hints of aniseed and liquorice undertones. Topped off with a creamy head this stout revives the legends of brewing in Mudgee.

Mudgee Pale Ale 4.4%

Made from malted barley, hops, yeast and clean Mudgee water, Mudgee Pale Ale is light and refreshing. We've blended Australian and imported malted barley, with a bit of SAAZ hops late in the boiling process, to provide a floral aroma and a crisp, clean taste.

Mudgee Porter 4.3%

Our porter has been brewed with specialty dark malts that give it the most wonderful flavours of dark chocolate and roast coffee. It's also been lightly hopped, allowing the malt flavours to dominate. Mudgee Porter has a thick texture and a warm finish, making it the perfect beer for those cooler nights.

Mudgee Spring 5%

Mudgee Spring is an American style Pale Ale which features Cascade and Hallertau hops. These hops provide amazing aromas and flavours to this full-bodied beer.

Mudgee Wheat 4.7%

Mudgee Wheat is a traditional European-style beer, brewed using lots of wheat malt. It also uses Hefeweizen yeast, which gives the beer its cloudy appearance, and its distinctive aromas of clove and banana.

Seasonal Brews

Belgian Blonde (5.5%)  - Our Belgian Style Blonde Ale aims to reset the Australian misconception that blonde means low carb & low taste. Mudgee's Belgian Blonde was brewed to compliment our Smokey Red and was inspired by our (sometimes blonde) daughter Amy.
Black IPA (6.5%) - Our Black Indian Pale Ale is neither Pale nor Indian. This beer is a dark ale displaying upfront hoppiness of the American Amarillo hops combined with the malty flavours of the dark malts. 
Citra IPA (6.5%) - Our American style IPA is full of up-front flavours and hoppiness to give a full rich mouthfeel.  A long lingering bitter finish makes this a deeply satisfying ale. This is where craft beer drinkers step up and get their badge of authenticity. 
Galaxy Pale Ale (4.5%) - Brewed with Australian Galaxy hops, our Australian Pale Ale has a fruity upfront hoppiness with a raised level of bitterness providing a refreshing beer suited to the Australian climate.
Smokey Red (5.1%) - Some of the best inventions happen by pure accident. Penicillin and our Smokey Red are two examples. Gary was about to throw out a bag of smoked malt when he decided to throw some into a brew of IPA. The result is a cracker, a smooth red ale with a hint of smoke, named in honour of his red-headed wife Debbie.
