Scott Wilson-Browne was something of a lone duck in the world of Australian craft beer. Sure, Richard Watkins was having fun in the underbelly of Canberra’s Wig & Pen. At the same time, David Hollyoak was offering up his frequently Willy Wonka-inspired beers in Sydney. But to sample them you had to travel and taste at source. Scott, on the other hand, was forging something of a mad scientist reputation in the Victorian countryside and sending his out there confections, via specialist outlets, further afield.

“I’ve always been following people like Dogfish Head – keeping in touch with what’s going on in the rest of the world,” says Scott, co-founder of Red Duck Brewery with wife Vanessa, of his trailblazing ways. “Sometimes you might think a new beer is an original idea but maybe it’s only because it hasn’t been done in this country before.


Craft Beer Growth

Despite the rapid growth in popularity and diversity of craft beer in recent years, he still believes there’s plenty of room for such experimentation, particularly when looking at other countries such as the States. But it’s experimentation that needs to come hand in hand with “a bit of maturity, settling down and more unity”, he says, to ensure growth happens in a manner that doesn’t “start getting ugly” for the little guys.

For his part, this week sees the start of a launch sequence reminiscent of The Wedding Present, the UK indie band that released a vinyl single every month for a year two decades ago.
