Nowhereman Brewing Co

The beer lovers of Western Australia have been well served by their local craft beer industry over the past few decades, with growing numbers of microbreweries found in popular suburbs, tourist regions and even where you might not expect them. The CBD and surrounds have, for the most part, not been so well served.

So offer up thanks to Nowhereman, which opened less than three kilometres from the city centre in the second half of 2017. It has quickly carved out a place as “Perth’s Urban Brewery”, thanks to its own spin on the three part harmony of the brewery’s eponymous Beatles song title: a dream team of front of house, kitchen and brewer bringing their best to the former furniture factory.

Founder Reece Wheadon’s six-year background in the roles of WA Beer Week director and curator served him well through the gestation period of Nowhereman. Which is just as well, as it was a gestation that dwarfs that of an elephant. His vision for a brewpub close to the CBD, bike paths, train lines and free central area transit buses took four years to become a reality but, with an expertly recruited and experienced team, it's been on song ever since the needle finally hit the record.

In the kitchen, they're using Eden Valley biodynamic wheat and Caputo 00 flour in their pizza bases and, elsewhere on the menu, the focus on small batch and ethically produced foods elevates Nowhereman food well beyond the fare found at most brewpubs and beer venues.

The third part – the melody, so to speak – was initially played by Colonial Brewing Co and The Monk brewer Paul Wyman, but has since been taking up by ex Little Creatures man Eddie Still.

The Leedy Lager, Crate Digger American Pale Ale, On The DL Dark Lager and Rhapsody XPA showcase their provenance as do collaborations like By The Pound, an English Brown Ale created with local roasters Pound Coffee. In 2018, they launched the Bartender Series, which sees them working with Perth bars and bartenders to create beers that reflect the collaborator in question, whether that's trying to reverse engineer their favourite cocktail or taking flavour inspirations from their cocktail list. Beyond the house beers, there’s a similar Western Australian focus throughout the wine, spirits and sodas on offer.

All are enjoyed in a bright and airy space filled with natural light in which the bar – black tiles at the rear, an expanse of hardwood to lean on while making your selection – is very much the centrepiece, flanked by the brewery on its left. Seating is a mix of low tables and benches, higher spots and stools, with bare brick walls, giant murals, large plantings and a rendition of the brewery logo looming overhead on one of the factory windows further evidence this has been a labour of love for Reece.

It makes it a great space for hosting events – something Nowhereman wasted little time in embracing – and is open Wednesday to Sunday with selected sports on screens and a vibe that’s as welcoming and inclusive as their beers.

Nowhereman Brewing Rhapsody XPA

Tapped August 13th, 2018
New brewer Eddie Still’s first beer for the inner Perth brewery leaves West Leederville’s urban grit behind for more tropical climes. Perhaps it's the illusion of summer during the slow crawl out of the cooler months but, if Rhapsody’s opening weekend is anything to go by, this looks set to become Nowhereman’s best-selling beer. The light orange hue in the glass the echoes the sunshine in glass that waits as tropical aromas, notably passionfruit, and some citrus work in concert with sweet… Read more

Nowhereman On The DL Schwarzbier

Sometimes known as “Black Pils”, Schwarzbier leads a humble life in the beer world. Perhaps misunderstood due to its appearance, it's a style that is deceptively lighter than its dark hue might lead drinkers to expect. It can also be complex yet refreshing, which you could argue makes it a bold choice for the dark beer in a brewery's core range. As with all of head brewer Paul Wyman’s beers, On The DL is an articulation of balance, drinkability and respect for style. In this Schwarzbier, that… Read more

Nowhereman Crate Digger American Pale Ale

At the 2016 Light Up Leederville carnival, a very proud Nowhereman founder Reece Wheadon was able to showcase the first of his brewing company's beers: Crate Digger. Still a year away from having a brewpub open to the public, the American pale ale had been gypsy brewed with the help of the Perth brewing community. What was tasted that day and what currently pours from its West Leederville home is an aromatic beer with a balanced bitterness that belies its fairly weighty 50 IBUs [International Bitterness… Read more

Nowhereman Six Seasons Saison – RETIRED

Six Seasons refers to the Noongar calendar that is a guide to seasonal change throughout the Western Australian year. In contrast to the European version, the seasons of Birak, Bunuru, Djeran, Makuru, Djilba and Kambarang are felt or observed in the flowering of plants or activity of animals, which may be shorter or longer depending on the climate of a particular year. In terms of Six Seasons' inspiration on the beer front, it draws a lineage to the classic farmhouse saison style of Europe. It's… Read more

Nowhereman Oxford St Common – RETIRED

The two kilometre street that runs through the heart of Leederville aptly lends its name to Nowhereman’s reduced alcohol Steam Ale. Historically, the style is linked to the American Gold Rush and the production of a malty lager without the use of traditional refrigeration. While US immigrants were fueled by a gilded fever, the sides of Oxford Street were being used as market gardens after Chinese immigrants, who had come to Australia chasing a similar dream, found work following the local gold… Read more

Nowhereman Leederville Lager

Stylistically, Martinis and lagers have a lot in common. Both are created from a few ingredients, involve a tightrope like balancing act that separates an OK version from greatness and possess a broad appeal that, when done well, should see both given greater respect than they perhaps receive. Which brings us to Leedy Lager, the well crafted local lager that has quickly become Nowhereman’s bestseller. The delicate balance is provided by traditional and new iterations of classic lager hops including… Read more

Nowhereman & Besk One Tonne Plum Farmhouse Ale

In the venue equivalent of "Let’s invite the new neighbours around for a beer", Perth's 6007 buddies Nowhereman and Besk got to work creating something to help mark the launch of the latter’s new digs. To make things more interesting, a literal tonne of Margaret River plums was juiced for the saison, which originally had more puckering design intentions.

There ain’t no party like a Nowhereman party! The West Leederville brewery decided to celebrate their second birthday with double IPA and a decal that riffs equally on the Fast and the Furious, Stranger Things, The Goonies and the So Fresh hit music compilation series – that’s a lot to take in while sipping a 8 percent ABV beer, none of which should be taken seriously.

Nowhereman AlphaRon 65000

Nowhereman owner Reece Wheadon’s dad, Ron, had been asking for this for years. He’d even suggested a name: Alpha Dog, a solid name for a winter stout – something honest and dependable to represent a classic beer style. Except the brewery team thought it would be way funnier to name it AlphaRon, add 65000 for more hilarity, then put Ron’s head in a glass jar on the decal in a Futurama-like expression.

For their 2019 GABS festival beer Nowhereman opted to follow a dark and wintry path. And then tack on some tasty detours too. Noir de Garde is a Belgian dark ale brewed with Port-soaked dried figs and the addition of oak. Head brewer Eddie Still says: “We started with the idea to brew a dark winter beer and then things got a little out of control; we fell down the rabbit hole of ideas and this is where we ended up.” There's no doubting the beer's Belgian roots, thanks to its big, malty Dubbel… Read more

Autumn’s arrival marks the harvest for many crops, not least hops. Nowhereman’s team took this opportunity to work with Preston Valley Hops, two hours South of Perth, and hand-picked 25kg of Cascade and 7kg of Victoria hops to celebrate the lupulin magic of the female flower.

Citrus Nights is a liquid love letter to the last of the warm summer evenings, an autumn release that looks longingly back at the time spent at the beach and outdoors in a warm defiance of the reality that cooler months are coming. For Nowhereman, they've looked to capture that fading radiance via this grapefruit-infused India Pale Lager.

Where do you start with a beer name like this? Its aggressively playful title definitely evokes the sour yet sunshine in a glass beer, likewise the limited run of tiki glasses available at the brewery for its debut, but it could come in a little hot for the PC police.

Nowhereman Gin & Juicy Botanical NEIPA

Twenty-five years ago, nearly to the day, Snoop Dogg released a slinky, G-Funk defining single from his debut album, Doggystyle. The paean to teenage partying and excess may not have been the inspiration for Nowhereman’s Gin & Juicy, however, given recent releases, somehow, some way, they keep coming up with fruity-ass beers at a rate that seems to be one every single week. With such a clear concept it’s interesting that there was no juice addition to Gin & Juicy. All the fruit character… Read more

It appears Nowhereman have settled into something of a brew-groove, with this their fourth fruit sour in as many months. Having previously explored beery cocktail expressions and student party enablers, Berry Gose Round may be their most approachable fruited beer yet. In loading up 80kg of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, they've created a pretty pastel pink beer.

The pre-release images from Cherry Psycho’s brew day featured a shot that appeared to be an horrific accident – a vibrant red-stained industrial blender next to an otherwise normal human leg suggested a bloodied prosthesis or the beginnings of an aggressive android invasion.

So, Charlie Hodgson (Helios), Lachy Crowthers (Ballistic) and Eddie Still gathered around Nowhereman’s whirlpool to create a sessionable summer sour, something that would suit the humid Queensland weather as much as the dry Perth heat.

Nowhereman Miia IPA

Named after his newborn daughter Miia, head brewer Eddie Still’s mind may well have been fighting evil with hops as the colourful decal suggests, yet there's a good chance that it came about as he had a little time waiting for her arrival so why not brew another beer? Whatever the case, Miia delivers punchy hop characters but still sits comfortably within Nowhereman’s approachability driven ethos.

The lively siblings share a fondness for using shrubs, a type of vinegared syrup, in cocktails. So, in paying homage to this, an Oleo-Saccharum technique was used in which citrus peel is sealed in sugar to draw the oils into an increasingly concentrated citrus syrup.
