We don’t just love to brew beer, we also love to share it and at the Matilda Bay Brewery Bar Kitchen we serve our full range of beers and cider including small batch brews and seasonal specials. To complement our brews our team of chefs, brewery staff and brewers have collaborated to bring you a carefully crafted menu of share plates and larger dishes designed to pair perfectly with the Matilda Bay range. Our bar and kitchen just so happens to be located smack, bang, in the middle of the brewery, if you are interested in knowing the inner workings enquire at the bar about our brewery tours .


Helga Brew Info

The story

Helga is a Munich-style dry lager — malty, full bodied and well rounded, by name and taste. Helga is a beer that is easy to drink, but still has a level of complexity that will keep the keen beer lover interested. Helga may also refer to a complex woman from Munich, but that really is another story.

The style

Tasting notes

Helga was inspired by the Munich “Oktoberfest” lagers — also known as Helles lagers.

Helga pours to a golden amber hue, slightly deeper than mainstream lagers and is capped with a densely packed white head.

The craft

The malt driven flavours are well balanced by the dry hopping process used in late fermentation. The Pacifica hop used produces a refreshing fruit aroma and leaves the palate dry and crisp.

The match

A perfect accompaniment to a mixed plate of Spanish tapas, Helga also goes a treat with a big continental sausage. If you read that last sentence with a straight face we commend you on your maturity. If not, we commend you on your immaturity.

Beer comes first here. As it should.  We love to show people around the brewery but have to wait until the brewers have knocked off for the day (safety first...) we run tours on Saturdays at 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm o’clock. They are free, just come down and ask at the bar.
