TEMPE TIMPALE ALE

Tim makes a fine midshipman. He’ll get you back to port with steady seas and sails full of laughter. A pale, funny and full-bodied fella, Tim is a top mate and true Tempe original. We’ve always got time for Tim.

LIL’ LOUIEXPA

The youngest member of our crew, Louie is the first wee lad born into the WtB family. He’s a bold bairn with a big horizon. His old man, our Brewer Simon, brewed this beer in his honor. Welcome aboard, Lil Louie.

CRAZY IVANIPA

Crazy Ivan is a true-blue bucket of laughs. A smart man, but never one for being organised. And if you find yourself in close quarters with Crazy Ivan, you’d better batten down the hatches, because you’ll be in for one hell of a night.

MARRICKVILLELAGER

Here’s to Marrickville — a suburb close to our hearts. Rich in cultures and characters, it’s a tasty place for those thirsting after wild and spicy adventures. So get out there.

NECTAR OF THE HOPSNew England IPA

Raise a glass to our brewer Joel, who scoured the globe in search of ingredients for this true treasure – a brew that will even sweep old sea dogs off their paws.

OLD SALTYMelon Gose

Old Salty is our tribute to those old and wise friends that we all know and love – those well-seasoned characters that sit amongst us, with fascinating stories to tell, and buckets full of wisdom.

ALBOCORN ALE

He’s the last of a rare breed of pollie and an all-round good bloke. Anthony Albanese MP has earnt his sea legs — and a hardworking beer named just for him. Cheers, Albo.

BLACK BUNNYDark Ale

Even sea-hardened sailors get rattled when this dark and full-bodied character steps on board. However, don’t fear, for beneath that fierce exterior beats a heart of true blue gold.

Making beer differently BEERcause we can.

When you were a lot younger than you are now, two fat dads from Tempe changed the world (probably). Somehow blessed with an extraordinary talent for creating beers that make jaws drop, Pat McInerney and Nick Newey launched Willie the Boatman in 2012.

Built with unhinged imagination, local mates, fierce independence and the finest ingredients, Willie is a brewery for true local characters. Inspired by the legend of a convict boatman, Pat and Nick proudly serve the community bloody great beers, wild yarns, and terrible love advice. Pop down and get some for yourself.

Tell us what you need and how we can contact you. We’ll put all hands on deck to make it happen.
