Founder & Chief Brewer’s Notes – Costa Nikias
“The anticipation of how this authentic wild ale would develop has kept me intrigued and engaged over the last 3 years and it is with great pleasure that we announce  – it has exceeded our expectations in the complexity & balance stakes.

This True Wild Ale is displaying Nature at her best, showing the perfection she effortlessly delivers when allowed to fully express herself without any brewer interference. I say ‘she’ as there is an elegance and sophistication in this wild ale that is undoubtedly feminine yet has a powerful mid-palate reminiscent of our 2-year Coolship (Time & Place).

Being next to the 130 acres of protected parklands (Darebin Parklands) with all its wonderful biological & microbial diversity is really what we are celebrating here. Back in mid-2017, we brewed the wort for this wonder on a cold winters’ evening where temperatures were hovering at about 3 degrees Celcius with a northerly wind direction & speeds of about 8 knots – just enough to bring in a microbial snapshot of the parklands and layer it liberally over our freshly made (100 degrees Celcius) hot wort. Watching this happen in a steamy environment on a cold winter’s evening is mesmerising, to say the least, however, it never gets boring watching it 5 years into doing Coolship Wild Ales here at our current site!”
