This week we caught up with Holgate Brewhouse’s CEO and founder, Paul Holgate. Paul and his wife, Natasha, have recently been asked by the University of Melbourne to assist with a course on the ins and outs of craft beer. Paul also discusses the history of Holgate, giving insight into all the hard work needed for organic growth and what got their brewery to expansion point.
Since 1999, the Paul and Natasha Holgate inspired family brewing company has been producing authentic craft beer from the village of Woodend, 75km north of Melbourne in the rural Macedon Ranges.
Paul has a degree in chemistry and has had a keen interest in been since his university days, stating that a visit to the United States in 1997 was inspiration for him to build a brewery and brewpub in his home region.
