Riverina town of Barellan

Looking to a beer to boost tourism – and highlight the quality of its homegrown barley.

A year ago, avid homebrewer and school teacher Stuart Whytcross, who grew up in the small town 50km east of Griffith, had the idea to start up the Barellan Beer Company. It’s a brewery with a difference because it’s a not-for-profit – the money raised from the one beer they’ve made goes straight back into the company.

He had dreams of starting a craft brewery but admitted his home town was probably too small to support one. But he figured that maybe they would support one that supported the town, through using only locally-grown barley and only selling the beer on tap in town.

And support it they did. A crowd-funding campaign to raise money brought in more than twice the $15,000 Stuart estimated they would need to get things rolling. That allowed him to brew the one commercially available Barellan beer: a 3.9 per cent ABV golden ale – a beer that you could call ‘‘single origin’’ in that it only contains malt from Barellan farmers.


The Company’s Golden Grain Ale

‘‘We’ve used three different farmers’ grain in the project and I get a real thrill out of the satisfaction they get when they give someone a beer that they know their barley’s gone into.’’


Making the Barellan Beer Company’s Golden Grain Ale isn’t cheap, considering they have to send the barley to Melbourne to be malted and then have it sent back again. But, in a move that could save some money through removing the need to send the barley to Melbourne, there’s a plan to set up a malting business in the town that will sell the single origin malts to other craft brewers.

However, at the end of the day, says Stuart (pictured third from left below with members of the local community), the focus of the Barellan Beer Company isn’t really on making money.
