Redback ‘The Original’, Matilda Bay Poster
$24.00 – $85.00
The Matilda Bay Brewery was the first of the modern-day boutique pub-breweries to operate in Australia. Completely independent of the long-established and powerful breweries, including the Swan Brewery in Perth, the new company was the pioneer in introducing a new range of specialty beers and old-style English ales.
The promoter of this profoundly courageous venture was Philip Sexton, a young man who had worked for years at the Swan Brewery, and had been involved in developing the highly successful Swan Special Light. In 1983 he left Swan and completed a master’s degree in biochemistry in Britain, specialising in the fermentation of beer.
Returning to Fremantle, Sexton began to shape his vision of an up-market hotel brewery into reality. A company was formed in October 1983 as Dallenton Pty Ltd, changing to Brewtech Pty Ltd, and then Brewtech Ltd in December 1987.
On 20 October 1988 the company was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, and CUB acquired a shareholding. This ultimately led to the takeover and total control of the Matilda Bay Brewing Co. Ltd and its operations by CUB in April 1990.
Redback, a German style hefeweizen or wheat beer (4.7% alc/vol), named after the infamous Australian spider. Originally released in 1986 as a seasonal beer called Summer Wheat, it was renamed in 1987 and released nationwide. In 1993 it was awarded grand champion at the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA).
