After pouring everyone elses' excellent beers over the last eleven years, we figured it was time to start brewing our own - time to install our own stainless and start walking the walk. So in early 2014 that's what we did; in the form of a Premier Stainless 600L Brewhouse with three single batch fermentors. Just the right size to play; enabling us to brew whatever, however and whenever we want. Light-footed, nimble brewing with the freedom of Contract and the stability of Stainless. From time to time we might even be lucky enough to collaborate with some of those excellent Brewers whose beers we've poured, and will continue to pour, over the years...
Style Czech Pilsener
In a a Nutshell Bready, spicy, herbal, smooth. Well lagered.
Style Raspberry Berliner Weisse
In a Nutshell Tangy, tart and revvin'. The need for speed.
As brewers, we like to push the envelope and sometimes our egos write cheques our yeast can't cash. This beer spent a weekend souring in kettle and got treacherously close to the pH danger zone. Fortunately our yeast pushed through - in overdrive...
Style Berry Table Beer
In a Nutshell For our latest collaboration with blackberry peddler and long term ally Ben Kraus, we've cut loose with a Mixed Culture, Mixed Berry Table Beer - Berry, tight, winelike and dry...
Style Foreign Extra Stout
In a Nutshell Roasty, creamy and full. Rum, Raisin and the lash.
A straight-up, old fashioned restorative Stout that we brewed with old friend and long term Wheaty ally Sophie Otton.
Style Mini Vienna Pils
In a Nutshell Little, long and lean. Bready, herbal, clean...Dogged little Pils.
A beer named after a (sausage) dog named after a sausage - inspired by the use of Vienna (Weyermann Wiener) as a base Malt and our decision to breed this Pils long, lean and low.
Lots of character in a small frame was the idea...
Style Hoppy Table Beer
In a Nutshell Hoppy, tart and dry. Wild Flower, mild funk.
It was time to go deep into the Wild with bug wrangler, barrel whisperer and blender extraordinaire Topher Boehm of Wildflower Brewing, intentionally pitching bugs into fermentor for the first time in our very clean, very controlled history...
Style Russian Imperial Stout with Tea
In a nutshell Roasty, smoky, tobacco & rum. Deep tea.
It was always going to be fun nutting out a collaboration with Cavalier ‘we’re open to literally anything’ Brewing. Unsurprisingly, Cavalier needed little arm twisting to tackle a beer idea we'd had steeping for some time; a Russian Imperial Stout infused with Lapsang Souchong tea leaves - rich, savoury and smoky...
Style Breakfast Stout
In a Nutshell Roasty, oaty, smooth & nourishing. Vim & Vigour.
Our plan with Wheaty-Bix was to brew the Breakfast Stout equivalent of cold drip filtered coffee; clean, lean and delicate on the one hand with a clear intensity of coffee character on the other...
Style Belgian Wit + Lemon Myrtle
In a Nutshell Creamy, zesty, herbal. Lemon Myrtle
A trademark Wit was the go for our collaboration with legendary string quartet and long time Wheaty allies Zephyr Quartet to help celebrate their 20th Anniversary.
In addition to the (traditional) use of coriander seeds and fresh orange peel in Whirpool, we dry-leafed with Australian native ‘queen of the lemon herbs’ Lemon Myrtle - dosing the fermentor for an intensely fragrant lemon zing and just a hint of menthol...
Style East Coast IPA
In a nutshell Juicy, fruity and smooth. Hops Oats Yeast.
Legendary Yeastman Chris White (White Labs) brought proper yeast expertise to the collaboration table for the second rendition of our Modus Operandi/Fixation Brewing East Coast IPA...
