Brewing On Country

The Northern Territory Government will introduce a new program called Brewing on Country. There will be a total of 15 Brewing Together Officers who will be recruited under special measures provisions for a period of two years. These officers will engage with both urban, rural and remote Aboriginal people in brew yarning activities.

Brew yarning is based on both archeological and anthropological evidence of traditional brewing. What Europeans know as didgeridoos were sealed at one end with bee’s wax and then filled with a mixture of bush honey, water and certain blossoms from trees, natural yeasts then fermented the brew.

Brew yarning will engage people on country.

Some activities will include using Oztops, different yeasts and sugars such as sucrose and fructose.
