Brewed with NSW grown regenerative organic barley and organic raw rye, hopped with NSW-grown Red Earth hop flowers. Unfiltered and bottle conditioned, Poolroom showcases the younger side of our mixed house culture wholly collected from native flowers in NSW.

Poolroom is roughly a biere-de-garde... a beer 'to keep' (the literal translation of 'de garde') made with Paddington's Porcine bistro. Their menu, unabashedly French, called for a french-tradition beer. All Wildflower beer, in a way, is in this vein but we never have really sought to attempt this specific style which balances malt sweetness with high fermentation esters and a firm but evasive bitterness. Poolroom pays respect to the traditional biere-de-garde method of an extended boil and incorporates the less traditional spice of rye grains... a nod to chef Nik Hill's relationship with Voyager malt.

Tasting notes by Meesh: A visually stunning beer, pale gold with beautiful foam. The nose is evocative of Cuvee des Jonquilles, hyper floral. This beer has a beautiful weight and richness. The body is full but met with a perfect level of carbonation. Red Earth hops lend a spicy character with a cut of zesty citrus and a pleasurable bitterness.
