The timing could have been better, but Sydney’s latest brewery, White Bay Beer Co on the Balmain Peninsula, launched its first beers last week.
The brewery, which was founded by an all-star cast including Adam Trippe-Smith of keg rentals business Konvoy, Tim Fishwick, formerly of Balter, The Rocks Brewing and Little Creatures, as well as publican Tim Condon. They are joined by brewer Dennis de Boer, who is brewing alongside his partner Jess Walker, formerly of 4 Pines.
De Boer spent nearly four years at Modus Operandi in Sydney, has done a stint at Stone & Wood and started his career in his native US at Oskar Blues Brewery in Colorado.
He said it had been a tiring few weeks getting the beers out at the new production brewery.
“It’s been good, I’m sleepy! But the reception was awesome,” he said.
