Wildflower Brewing and Blending, Marrickville, Sydney 🌹🌸🌻🍻
The barrel room and cellar door is one of the nicest brewery set ups I’ve ever come across. Dozens of beautiful barrels line the walls along an intimate space that feels like a cosy converted coach house rather than just another a warehouse. Dim lighting for the sake of the barrels and elegantly placed native flowers for extra aesthetics.
And the beer? Well, where do I begin?
“St Thomas” was crafted using a blend of barrel aged amber ales, wild yeast and fresh local morello cherries. The result after of months of tinkering, refermenting, and ageing is a stunning wild ale with pronounced sour cherry flavours and funky, bretty yeast. The mouthfeel is smooth and bubbly and the sour cherries provide a mouth puckering tartness.
Thank you @wildflowerbeer visiting you was truly a delight!

Drinking the “Son of a Peach” Peach Berliner Weisse. I absolutely love Berliner Weisse and I absolutely love peaches. Naturally, I absolutely loved this beer! It was a slightly different take on the style coming in at 5.5% instead of the typical 3.5%. Despite this the body was still light and smooth and I got that mouthwatering tartness and ultra refreshing quench that I love so much about the style. The peaches were juicy and ripe and complimented wonderfully by a touch of sherbet that subtly enhanced the sweetness of the peaches.

So many barrels and so many beers! My tasting paddle comprised of:
Plum Perfect - Plum Berliner Weisse
Hopzilla - Hoppy Weizen
Two Bridges - Passionfruit IPA
Rockafella - Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Ale
The Mountie - Maple Syrup Imperial Stout
I loved them all but the most impressive has got to be The Mountie! A 12% Russian Imperial Stout with so much maple syrup that they ought to serve it with pancakes. It’s stupidly sweet and super viscous yet still, so, so drinkable! One of the yummiest dessert beers in Australia!!

I could not get enough of the ‘Pash the Magic Dragon’ Dragonfruit Sour!! Seriously the juiciest sour beer ever created! It has a succulent dragonfruit and peach flavour with that awesome tingling sweetness of sour lollies! The mouthwatering finish leaves you feeling like maybe you did in fact just pash a dragon... 😘🦄💕
How to kidnap me! 😂😂
Wayward Brewing in Camperdown, Sydney 💛🍻
I just had to try the ‘In Bruges’ Flanders Blonde Ale. It sounded so interesting! Aged in French and American Oak for 2 years this beer had all the usual characteristics of the Flanders style (think yeastiness and funk) but was lighter in colour and body and had a much milder sourness/acidity. It would be perfect for when you’re craving that type of yeast but don’t want to have a big sesh. It was really drinkable and so tasty!
Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. We have to agree. Happy International Beer Day friends. We're open from 12pm until late. We'll be waiting to greet you with a pint of your favourite drop.

I loved the ‘Serpents Kiss’ Watermelon Pilsner 🍉🍉 A crisp Aussie pilsner that smells and tastes like freshly hacked watermelon. The watermelon flavour was natural and hits you straight away. Refreshing, tastes like summer in a glass!
The ‘Pink Galah’ pink lemonade sour was also really cool! It has a gorgeous pink hue, sour citric sensation in the mouth and tangy lemon squash flavour. Afterwards a strong lemon lime bitters flavour comes through.
I love my pups. Gunner, Bohannon and Crowder. They are my rocks, the furry little creatures that have helped me through some of the darkest times - even though sometimes they dig holes the size of the Grand Canyon in my backyard, just like the one that this Comet Pale Ale from @frenchiesbb sits on the precipice of. Now, before you ask what a Comet Pale Ale is, I'll let you know that it refers to the rare and seldomly used wild American Comet hop - and it is a unique thing indeed, for I don't think I've ever had another beer with said hop involved. So what does all that actually lead to? It leads to a very biscuit-ish nose with a little spice in it along with a little grassy note from the thin head that maintains its presence the entire length of the glass. It has a much deeper amber hue than most other pale ales floating around and the body is malt-strong with an odd hop feel at the back of the palate which I can't quite narrow down. A unique take on a common classic. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a hole to fill.
We've a few places available for this Saturday's beer class. Our last Australiana class sold out, and this one is headed the same way. Come enjoy a great afternoon out filled with food, beers and some great banter from Janet and the Redoak Brew Crew.
