"Lovely bright nose, citrus pops, herb garden (provance), minerality, mild smoke. Flavours of lemon soda, chalky minerality and earthy spice.

Bright Side is a series of five collaborative Australian Wild Ales made with smoke tainted grapes. 

When Bryan Martin of Ravensworth Wines realised his vines were smoke tainted from the 2020 bushfires, he concocted a plan ‘B’ with Topher Boehm of Wildflower Brewing & Blending to turn the unwanted grapes into a series of blended beers. A series expressing the 2020 harvest through five unique beers, using Wildflower Gold as a base, married with Ravensworth grape varietals.

We embarked on this journey for a number or reasons… firsty, I hate waste and I love giving grown produce a 2nd or 3rd life. These beers are an extension of that, adding value to a crop that is seen by an entire industry as useless, trash. Second to experiment further with smoky fruit in order to make educated inferences in years to come (I mean we can’t expect this not to happen again). Third to challenge ideas on worth – what is worthy of being used and what is wasted, and lastly to help Ravensworth recover a portion of the cost of the 2020 harvest- this is a separate label for us both and something we undertake 50/50. We are looking forward to being out and about having conversations about the project and taking an optimistic approach on the harvest, indeed the year that was, 2020.

The Bright Side beers are two friend’s attempt to view the world with a glass half-full. Share in our optimism." - Wildflower Brewing and Blending

Meet the Dealers

We’re Antoinette, Natasha, Matt and Simon. We’re good booze lovers just like you. We started our beery journey in 2013 when we opened the famous Brewski on Brisbane’s infamous Caxton Street. In 2018 we opened our first My Beer Dealer under Brewski, it’s one of the few drink-in bottle shops in Queensland and we’re super chuffed with it. 2020 was a big year for us, we launched our online store (you’re looking at it) and opened our second bricks ‘n mortar shop next to Eagle Junction station in Brisbane’s Clayfield (we’re super chuffed with it as well). Both of these have allowed us to complement our awesome beer range with our other passions of good wine and good spirits.

As we’re a small family run business we prefer to support other family businesses and small producers, ensuring that when you visit us it’s not the same old, same old. And by shopping with us we hope you get to feel good about supporting a whole heap of small businesses, just like we do. So if you do choose to buy through us, thank you from us and thank you from our family of suppliers (and thanks for reading this far, our copywriter is stoked).
