Kimberley plant spices up new Matso's brew

Kimberley plant spices up new Matso's brew The team at Matso's have just provided Australian beer drinkers with a perfect excuse.

Matso's head brewer Dave Phillips added a pinch or two of a well-known local ingredient found around their Broome operation.

Kimberley boab trees are renowned for their high vitamin C content. They have also been a source of calcium for the population.

And earlier this year WA scientists identified the plants as having an iron rating around eight times greater than a steak.
