Luke ScottHead Brewer
Luke studied Chemical Engineering & Commerce before commencing brewing with Carlton & United Breweries in 2000 in their Research & Development division known then as Brewtech. Afterward, Luke travelled to Europe where he honed his skills and passion for beer & brewing working at Meantime Brewery in London & Managing the Cellar and Bar Operations at the famous White Horse Hotel in Parsons Green. Upon his return to Australia, Luke became Head Brewer with the Hunter Beer Co – Potters Brewery in the Hunter Valley NSW. In late 2007 Luke returned to Victoria to take up the Head Brewer position with the Prickly Moses team. Luke not only has a passion for craft beer but also the history of beer and its traditions. He uses this passion to create some of our unique beers such as our Chainsaw, Saison & Blueberry Hefeweizen, as well as our day to day ever popular core beers in the Prickly Moses range. Luke lives all things beer and brewing, and is really passionate and excited with the direction that the Australian Craft Beer Industry is heading.
