Goodieson Brewery is owned by Jeff and Mary Goodieson and is run from our home in McLaren Vale, South Australia. Our passion for brewing came from our passion for drinking good beer, and we've put a lot of "research" into drinking good beer. Both Jeff and Mary spent many years as 20 something's in Europe and developed a taste and respect for traditional beers from Austria and Germany. On returning to Australia we did a bit of home brewing before we decided to get serious about beer. We moved to Ballarat in 1996 and spent four years there whilst Jeff completed a degree in Food Technology and an Honours year in Malting and Brewing. Since his graduation at the end of 1999 he has worked for Lion Nathan in many capacities. It’s Christmas in a beer bottle! Throughout history, beer of a somewhat higher alcohol content and richness has been enjoyed during the Christmas Season. Many American or Belgian breweries produce unique seasonal offerings that may be darker, stronger, spiced, or otherwise have more character than their normal beers. Our Christmas Ale is brewed using the spices of Christmas wrapped up in a Chestnut Brown Ale. Fermented at 20°C and hopped with Pride of Ringwood, Tetnang and Hersbrucker Hops it is a perfect compliment to the festive season. 6.3% alcohol by volume
