Watch :: Meet Your Brewer – Doctor’s Orders (Ep 03)
October 28th 2014
Meet Darren Robinson – otherwise known as the Doc – the brains behind some of Sydney’s most unique beers.
While he still has a day job in IT, The Doc is passionate about flipping traditional brewing on its head and changing the way we think about beer.
“The thing I really like about beer, and brewing beer, and designing beers and sharing them with people, is the tangible aspect to it and the social nature of sharing it with people. The instant feedback – people’s reactions, people’s joy, people’s experiences as they discover new flavours, or understand what they are tasting for the first time. And then having them come back for more and more…”
Darren makes Doctor’s Orders (“the tastiest of all medicines”) as a ‘cuckoo brewer’: he uses existing breweries in the local area to make his beer, without having his own brewery. Currently, Doctor’s Orders brew out of Young Henrys in Newtown, the Australian Brewery in Rouse Hill and the Rocks Brewing Co in Alexandria.
