Waratah Day at Wildflower
Time Out says
Wildflower, the pioneering Marrickville beer producer known for wild ferment beers and locally sourced ingredients, is all about process and provenance. To celebrate the third release of Waratah – a 100% NSW ingredient brew – the team is hosting a morning focused on sustainability in beer and the future of grain beverages.
Waratah Day is back for its third consecutive year, and the line-up of speakers features some seriously big names in the biz, including veteran drinks writer Max Allen, Gab and Chris Moore of experimental Gippsland brewery Sailors Grave, and a panel discussion with soil scientists, hops and barley farmers, Canberra district winemaker Bryan Martin and Lou Dowling from Newtown’s natural wine bottle shop P&V Merchants.
Tickets are a mere $10 donation, all of which goes towards supporting regional and rural mental health programs. Put more of your hard-earned to the good cause by purchasing a treat from the donation cake stall with goodies from Cherry Moon General Store, Brickfields and Two Chaps or a coffee from the Mecca cart. The festivities will kick on well into the afternoon when the cellar door opens to the public with a sausage sizzle by organic butchery Feather and Bone. And for all the home brewers out there, vials of the prized house culture will be available on the day as well.
