So spake Peter Philip, founder and head brewer of Wayward Brewing Company, the latest Sydney-based beer company to hit the market and – all things going to plan – the city’€™s next brewery.


Wayward could perhaps be considered a ‘specialty beer specialist’, with the list of already released and impending releases enough to make beer lovers giddy in their loins: India Red Ale, Biere de Garde, Eisbock, Bavarian Kellerbier and a Jasmine Saison.


Says Peter: “My preferred styles lean towards European, but I think the styles I make are more of a fusion.”


That’s somewhat reflected in the choice of the company name “Wayward”. The inspiration, Peter says, comes from a phrase he heard: “Lost, but on purpose.” In other words, the beer might not necessarily be what you expect, but is all the better for it.


The first official release from Wayward is the Charmer India Red Ale (IRA). The label states: “Yet Another IPA? Nope”, and is true to its word, being a bitter but highly drinkable 5.6 per cent ruby red ale. The second batch is out now and Peter reckons it’s “drinking nicely with slightly more hop aroma coming through up front”. While the IRA is currently the only available Wayward beer, the new brews should be coming thick and fast in the New Year.


As he enjoys a holiday during the festive period, the magnificently named Keller Instinct, a wheat/rye Bavarian kellerbier, will be fermenting in readiness for a January release. And after that will come the intriguing Jasmine tea-infused Summer Saison. The idea behind that beer came from talking to people running bars who mentioned a lot of their customers, particularly females, don’t enjoy the bitterness in beer. Wayward’s antidote is a light saison, somewhere just over four per cent ABV. Having brewed two trial batches – one with the tea and one without – the tea-less version was found to come up a bit short of what was expected, but the tannins of the tea version struck just the right balance.


As all of this is going on, Peter is hoping to get a couple of considerably bigger beers ready for the cooler months. One is the Raconteur, a 9.5 per cent Biere de Gardem which has been trialled for some time and is through several batches already, experimenting with different yeasts and varying levels of carbonation. It’s a necessarily slow process of refining the recipe because, as he says, “the Biere de Garde needs at least three months [maturation].”
