First created as a Christmas surprise for staff at honey-makers Capilano from their bosses, this handcrafted wheat beer, with the addition of pure light amber honey, turned out so well it eventually became a Matilda Bay stalwart.
This unique brew has a light malt palate with a distinct honey aroma and flavour plus a hint of bitterness. Clean, crisp and dry on the palate and surprisingly refreshing.
We brew Beez Neez with a blend of premium pale malted barley and malted wheats, then add Pride of Ringwood hops and pure light amber honey to the kettle to produce a beer that tastes like no other. This light golden coloured beer has a malty, honeyed palate but is decidedly dry, as the honey sugars have been fermented to alcohol.
In the versatility stakes, Beez Neez is a very capable and friendly beer, agreeable to most types of food — from Asian style meals through to dessert. Try it as a dessert wine substitute, it goes well with a cheese platter or honeycomb inspired dish.

Matilda Bay Brewing Company is dedicated to brewing a range of distinctive beers, hand crafted from the very best malt and hops available.
In 2007 we relocated to the vibrant craft beer scene in Victoria, and continued brewing first in Dandenong and most recently at an old renovated Cadbury’s chocolate factory in Bertie St Port Melbourne, which includes a bar & restaurant – so we can again talk directly to our beer lovers.
Throughout the years we’ve produced some of Australia’s favourite specialty beers & ciders, and along the way bagged a swag of trophies and awards. Our highly regarded Head Brewer – Scott Vincent – leads our brewing team with pride as they continue on the mission established in 1984 at the Sail & Anchor Hotel.
