In the heart of Sydney, Wildflower Brewing & Blending produces wild-fermented, barrel-aged blends that you’d only expect to find deep in the rural Belgian countryside. Using foraged yeast from native NSW fauna and malt grown in the Riverina region, the beers pick up a distinctly local terroir. The bushels of native Australian flowers lining the walls and a subtle flag in the background give uniquely Aussie twist to something you’d only expect to find on the other side of the world.
You must try: Waratah, which uses hops grown in the south of the state to make a fully NSW-sourced beer.
Did you know? Given wood is an excellent shelter for yeast, house strain has been infused into the slats, beams and doors of the brewery, achieved by spraying them down with fermented beer.
