WILD ALES & OPEN FERMENTATIONS PART 2 - ALEX & YVONNE JARMAN FROM SLOW LANE BREWING
We continue with our Wild Ales & Fermentations segment, where I chat with brewery owners that are pushing the envelope in regarding to the unique types of beers they are producing and offering to the craft beer market.
In part 2, I chat with Husband-and-Wife duo Alex & Yvonne Jarman from Botany based brewery, Slow Lane Brewing. Despite the name, Slow Lane, are quickly building a reputation within the brewing community especially here in Sydney on brewing and putting together some quality complex beers in the form of traditional European style beers.
Having a barrel aged program, open fermentation practices and trying to brew true to the style by focusing on the fermentation side of their beers, the typical turnaround for beer in the tank to a customer’s glass is much longer than other modern-day lager & pale ale breweries, which is where Slow Lane derives its name from.
Being open not much longer than 12mths, and battling with ongoing lockdowns and COVID restrictions, Alex and Yvonne have expertly navigated their new brewery business to some early day’s success, which much more to come I imagine.
It’s a great chat with both of them, who explain their journey of opening up, their passions when it comes to brewing particular styles, and breath inspiration to other aspiring brewery owners who may be looking at offering a unique point of difference as well.
