We are Otway Brewing - proud makers of Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beers and Forbidden Fruit Ciders. We strive to create the best beer possible by using the best ingredients possible and water is the key. Located in the Otways we are blessed with pure otway rainwater, it is well known that you need good water to make good beer and there's nothing better than water from the lush rainforest.
After many years of research (and many samples of beer) the decision was made by Janine Rose to build a craft brewery on site at Otway Estate. Although a winery, Otway Estate has embraced beer and brewing as much as the love of fine wine. The brewery was commissioned in February 2007 with the release of the first two beers took place in March 2007. Otway Estate Winery and Brewery have recently separated the management behind the Beer and Cider production.

Otway Brewing is now directing the manufacturing and distribution of Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer and Forbidden Fruit Cider. At Prickly Moses Handcrafted Beer, we believe that beer is diverse in its colour, aroma and flavour and is not just limited to "yellow fizzy stuff". We create beers to match an appearance, aroma and flavour profile - not a budget - so we use the best possible ingredients we can find. Our repetoire of exciting beer recipes continuously grows and we're always keen to try something new.
We hope you enjoy our beer as much as we enjoy brewing it for you.
