Camperdown’s crafty gypsy brewers have raised over $10,000 for Cystic Fibrosis NSW, largely through a Rose Kölsch brewed the Wayward way.

Wayward Brewing recently launched its ‘Craft for a Cause’ program, aiming to “spread the word on giving back to our community” courtesy of delicious boutique beers.

The first collaboration was with Cystic Fibrosis NSW (CFNSW) and resulted in a specially-made ‘Rose Kölsch’ to raise money for the charity, via events throughout May that culminated in the Festivale Charity Evening on Wednesday night (25 May).

Held at Wayward’s Cellar Bar in Camperdown, the Festivale included include live music, raffles and a menu incorporating four Wayward beers: Sourpuss, Charmer, Midnight Barley Cowboy, and the Rose Kölsch.

The Kölsch alone raised $7,450, and other events contributed to make over $10k the brewery was able to present to CFNSW.

Wayward told PubTIC the keg of Kölsch, made during a brew day event on 13 April, will have sold out by tonight.
