Hairyman, The Legend

Our brewery pays homage to the legendary Hairyman who roams this great southern land.

Rumoured to have once roamed Woolooware and Botany Bay, our brewery pays homage to the Hairy Wild Man of Botany Bay, a notoriously cheeky character with a taste for refined ales!

With all due respect to the Hairyman, our brewery continues to provide testimony of his encounters and show respect to his prowess by creating fine ales, lagers, stouts and ciders worthy of this fine beasts’ yearning.

“Hairyman” is trademarked by Hairyman Brewery.

This illustration shows “The Den of the Hairy Wild Man from Botany Bay”, extracted from a book titled “A Tour through the Apollo Gardens, in Gawsworth, near Macclesfield, Cheshire” published in England in 1802. From The National Library of Australia held on microfiche.
