SYDNEY | Willie The Boatman in St Peters was founded in 2012 by Pat McInerney and Nick Newey and is where they have turned their passion for brewing beer into a business. The duo had been home brewing for a few years but, after Willie The Boatman’s success took up ever increasing chunks of their time, quit their day jobs to focus on the brewery full time. Who is Willie you might ask? That would be William Kerr, a Scottish convict who rowed people across Tempe’s Cooks River in the 1830s, before there was a bridge.

The St Peters brewery, housed in a former Taubman’s Paint Factory still retains a very industrial feel with a bit of a beach shack theme. More importantly for punters, the brewery is home to a tasting room that serves 8 of the brewery’s beers on tap, all of which are named after local legends and the brewers mates. The entire core range of beers can be had, as well as a rotating selection of seasonal beers and special one-offs. You can go for a tasting paddle, or the usual pint or middy depending on what you feel like. The beers are all served with a small bowl of bar snacks which is a nice touch.

You can’t really go wrong with any of the core beers, but we’re particularly fond of “The Bulger”, a Pacific ESB named after the late local craft beer guru Peter Bulger and “Todd’s Trailer Ale”, a Pale Ale containing a blend of Citra and Galaxy hops named after Todd Payne, a mate of Nick’s who has lent his trailer out on more than one occasion. For something a bit different, try the special beer “Birthday Bubbles” if it’s available. It’s a Champagne Ale that was brewed for Willie The Boatman’s birthday that we particularly liked. Nicely carbonated with light honey notes.

T-shirts, bottles of beer and growlers can also be purchased, and of course you can get your growler refilled on site.

We don’t know if William Kerr was a beer drinker, but if he was he’d surely of the brews that Willie The Boatman are producing. We know that we are.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
