Fat Santa is a rich, decadent example of a whisky barrel (ex-red wine) aged imperial stout. Aged for 6 months, then racked onto whole coffee beans, vanilla beans and tonka beans. Think dark chocolate, whisky, red wine, coffee marzipan and vanilla – all things that Santa loves!
Founded in 2009 by Matt & Andrea Houghton, Boatrocker has come a long way from its beginnings of selling its first beers from the back of their car. As the founders of Australia’s first barrel room and cellar door, our aim is to offer not only a unique experience at the source (34 Macbeth Street, Braeside VIC 3195), but to also offer a complementary online experience.

The first items owner Matt purchased were 60 used wine barrels, starting the wheels turning on what would later be Australia’s first barrelroom and cellar door. The first beer put through their new equipment was a turbid mashed lambic style beer.
