Broome in northwest Western Australia is one of the most remote towns in the country, so you’d believe discovering a great beer right here is extremely difficult. however thanks to an early 20th Century Japanese pearler by the name of Mr Matsomoto, Matso’s Brewery right here in Broome provides something to raise a glass to.
Broome has been somewhere Mrs romance as well as I have wished to see for such a long time. thoughts of cable beach with its famous camels as well as the incredible sunsets over the Indian ocean have always excited the travel bug in us.
To make this faraway location even more enticing, I featured Matso’s rather a while back in our 9 Aussie craft beers review. So I was truly excited to be visiting the house of – among others – the Smokey Bishop: a tasty dark, smokey lager.
We walked past the white picket fence surrounding the brewery/gastro pub as well as directly to the bar.
Inside the pub, they’ve truly gone for the deep sea diving, pearl hunting past of this region. Its rustic styling as well as tough beer-keg barstools as well as barrel tables truly set the scene.
The taps are all made of old oyster shells in a nod to the area’s pearling market – not to mention its namesake’s pastime.
With so many different beers to select from, we went for 2 tasting paddles to get to understand all of the things they brew here. It’s a fun, expense efficient method to try all their beers.
The brewers right here are truly rather adventurous too.
Of program there are staples like a blonde, a truly great IPA as well as – as I mentioned – the black lager. however there are likewise some interesting fruit as well as flavor beers.
The ‘Chango’ is a chilli/mango beer. There’s likewise a directly chilli brew too, which definitely has a kick. There’s a extremely prominent ginger beer, made with genuine ginger root, as well as a tasty wild lime cider. It utilizes regional apples however infuses the cider with wild limes.
While we were enjoying this fun variety of beers, we perused the lunch menu.
Mrs R had the prawn, pawpaw as well as melon salad, which was fresh as well as full of colour.
As you can appreciate, with all this beer I couldn’t go past the pulled pork burger.
After our extremely satisfying lunch, we took a short, sluggish walk to the nearest bus stop as well as rolled back to our hotel for a nap.
Open every day: breakfast: 7.00am-11.00am, lunch: 11.30am-3.00pm, dinner: 5.30pm-9.00pm.
Top tip: get to Matso’s early for lunch as well as sit on a couple of beers till you’re hungry sufficient for a pub lunch. Otherwise, go there after 2pm.
