We wanted to create an easy drinking craft beer in the traditional North American pale ale style that has proved so popular with discerning beer drinkers - so we did, and then named it after a hairy Mongolian cow thing.
Fat Yak first impresses with its golden colour, distinctive, hop driven, fruity and herbaceous aromas, giving characteristic passionfruit and melon notes, followed by a hit of hop flavour at the finish. The taste is refreshingly clean on the palate.
Fat Yak is created from natural ingredients, including premium malts, American Cascade hops and a hint of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops.
Fat Yak pairs well with almost any food, but we reckon you should try it with spicy wedges, chorizo and tomato pizza or an antipasto platter with friends. We do not recommend it with yak, as yak tastes terrible. Even marbled Kobi yak (not a real thing).

Matilda Bay Brewery | Brewery
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.
