Modus’s first release for 2021 is a wax on, wax off kinda deal – with a gentle nod to one of australia’s most unusual and in turn unused native plants, geraldton wax, endemic to western australia. With a citrus sting of summer right off the bat, this bouquet of floral flavours and aroma will leave you wanting more. And more you will get out of this stunner 6.9% summer sour. Lemon myrtle on the nose with hints of lavender and pine. Finishing with a swift tart refreshing kick that lingers like those long carefree summer days of old. Wax flower sour is a uniquely aussie taste and you’ll be hard pressed to find anything like it. Wax on. Wax off.

They returned home to their beloved Northern Beaches with heads full of beer lovin’ and some very talented American brewers in their bags. Hailing from Oskar Blues Brewery, they taught them and their Aussie brewers the real art of craft beer, using first class materials and practices.

Back in the late 1940’s, the site of the brewery was a wholesome farmland that fed exotic animals at Taronga Zoo.
