Rose Garden Pavilion, Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney NSW 2000
A beer with a story
Located about 50 metres from the Rose Garden Pavilon is a plague marking the actual spot where John Boston's original windmill stood which brewed the first beer in Sydney back in 1796. He was a republican, surgeon, apothecary, opportunist, schemer, salt-maker, trader and brewer and today his recipe for beer is 100% natural with no preservatives or additives. Today Bruce Peachey is the brewing brain behind John Boston Premium Lager who also developed the Blue Tongue brand. Delightful canapés were supplied by Belinda Franks Catering which were designed to go with the medium bodied beer which I found refreshing and quite drinkable while still appreciating it's range of flavour. Thanks to Stewart White from Whiteworks Public Relations for inviting me along to this historic event.
