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 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 Foreign Extra Stout
In a Nutshell Roasty, creamy and full. Rum, Raisin and the lash.
A straight-up, old fashioned restorative Stout.
Style Hoppy Coffee Sour
In a Nutshell Jaffa
For our latest collaboration with coffee-fiend and Tour Down Underer Ben Kraus we decided to take a perfectly good IPA and ruin it. Twice.
By ‘ruin’, we mean sour and caffeinate it — to surprisingly delicious effect...
Style Session India Saison
IN A NUTSHELL Pine, lime, spice. Aromatic and lean.
As a major sponsor of the Australian National Homebrewing Conference 2016 the Wheaty was charged with brewing the official ANHC 5 beer; it had to be (1) interesting yet quaffable (2) a style we hadn’t brewed before and (3) ideally something that tied-in with the themes of the Conference. Enter ‘Indy’ - combining the Malt profile and fermentation characters of a dry French Saison with the Hop charge of a New World (India)Pale...
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 Munich Dunkel
In a Nutshell Dark, malty, herbal & smooth. Nicht so traditionell.
To say that collaborating with the oldest continuously brewing Brewery in the world was an honour is somewhat of an understatement. Weihenstephaner Braumeister Tobias Zollo is not only one of the best technical Brewers on the planet, crucially for us, he’s also a good sport. So with 978 years Brewing experience between us, we set about having ein bisschen bier Spaß...
