The only brew­ery in Broome. 

Craft Beer
In our brew­ery we com­bine the finest nat­ur­al ingre­di­ents, tra­di­tion­al time hon­oured brew­ing tech­niques and mod­ern tech­nol­o­gy, to pro­duce a range of beer styles that ‑above all else- aim to deliv­er flavour.

The Kim­ber­ley lifestyle, cli­mate and nat­ur­al envi­ron­ment is unique and unfet­tered, and our objec­tive is to cre­ate beers of indi­vid­u­al­i­ty that will reflect the region. With the knowl­edge and wis­dom of old world’ brew­ing to draw from, and the imag­i­na­tion and inno­va­tion of new world’ brew­ers as our inspi­ra­tion, we hope to con­tribute to the future of Aus­tralian beer.

Mat­so’s His­to­ry
Mat­so’s Store start­ed life as the Union Bank of Aus­tralia Ltd and was built in 1900. It stood in She­ba Lane, which ran down the edge of Kennedys Hill. The Union Bank was the first bank in Broome and was to be a vital part of the finan­cial life of the town for over 40 years.

She­ba Lane was noto­ri­ous as the Red Light dis­trict of Chi­na­town and was the cen­tre of the Japan­ese com­mu­ni­ty in Broome. Among the build­ings there were opi­um dens, broth­els and mah-jong palaces. Broome was a very open town, cater­ing for the var­ied needs of hard­work­ing divers through­out the region. 

Dur­ing 1942 the Union Bank branch in Broome found itself trad­ing unprof­itably and caught in a ratio­nal­iza­tion of the bank­ing indus­try. The year since the depres­sion had not been kind and the pearling indus­try itself was chang­ing. Plas­tics were begin­ning to have an impact on the indus­try. Nation­al­ly, although ninth largest, the Union Bank had­n’t been meet­ing expec­ta­tions and was the tar­get of a takeover. As a con­se­quence the Union Bank was absorbed into the ANZ group. 

In the late 1940s, a fire, which was thought to have been inten­tion­al­ly lit, either by a dis­grun­tled client of the estab­lish­ment or in response to the war in the Pacif­ic, dev­as­tat­ed She­ba Lane. The close­ness of the build­ings and poor ser­vices ensured lit­tle could sur­vive and only a few build­ings escaped destruc­tion. One of those was Mat­so’s Store. It remained unharmed amid the ruins and remained operating.
