Tell Us Your Story!
La Sirène Brewing began as a response to a calling to create modern day artisanal farmhouse-style beers with character and identity, which quickly evolved into our life-long obsession. Starting life as gypsy brewers in the Victorian Highlands, our artisan brewing adventures swiftly led us to creating our own Urban Farmhouse Brewery next door to the Darebin Creek & National Park in inner-city Melbourne, Australia.
An independent family owned & operated Urban Farmhouse Brewery, we are akin to modern-day ‘Saisonniers’ striving for Artistry in brewing; the intrigue of the unknown is what drives us, exploring & pioneering techniques and unique flavour profiles is what inspires us.
We focus on producing New World Farmhouse beers in our House Style with finesse, texture and above all crisp drinkability in humble honour of these age-old styles.
Tell us three things about your style of cheeses and what makes them unique?
We are a slow beer operation, which is very unusual in this fast paced industry, with a focus on allowing time for carbonation and conditioning across all of our products . All of our bottled beers undertake secondary fermentation in the bottle, it’s a real art and gives our beers the La Sirène house character we seek. We have a specifically built “warm room” that allows for this process where all the bottles (& sometimes kegs) are laid to sleep to evolve. This essentially is the Méthode Champenoise technique to carbonate and condition our beers which can sometimes take months before release, it takes a lot of patience, but we think it’s worth it.
Do you have a favourite Cheese pun?
Q: Which cheese has a drinking problem?
Hard or Soft?
Best cheese and booze match ever?
Wild Saison with Delice de bourgogne – but all our beers are extraordinarily scrumptious with all cheeses
