A Tale of Two Brothers, Robertson, and Dancing Baboons
The Saggy Stone dream kicked off in 2007. After the founders, two brothers Phillip and Adrian Robinson, decided to buy a farm with the intention of growing and exporting fruit. The growing trend of microbreweries scattered in the Australian Outback’s vineyards led them to avail to become Robertson’s first “beer-brewing farm”.
It was Phillip’s recipes and Adrian’s 12-year stint as a baker that ensured they perfected the art of all-grain brewing. The beer brewed using the farm’s fresh mountain water convinced them that they were on to something great. Pure, moss-filtered spring water that flows over the smoothest granite, is the key to a great tasting craft beer and as the brothers now know, great mountain water, makes better beer.
And the name?
While under construction, a troop of overzealous baboons danced on the walls of Adrian’s gabion style Lapa, causing the stones to sag. On inspection, his then 10-year old daughter called it “The Saggy Stone Lapa”. The name stuck, not only as a charming story but also as natural as Saggy Stone itself.
