Getting into gear for a new year of beer, our Autumn issue is out now and ready to see you through another season.

With Matilday Bay’s Phil Sexton gracing our cover, we chat with him and a bunch of other brewers about where the wheat beer category fits in the diverse Australian craft landscape. We also come at wheats from every angle across 15 pages of coverage dedicated to them, including their history and modern evolution, but also how to savour them and brew them better while we road test a few recent releases we consider are worth your while tracking down.

You can subscribe or buy a back issue here or find this issue in newsagents and home brew shops.
