It's not uncommon among Australia's craft brewers to find those with former careers that have been abandoned in favour of chasing beery dreams. It is uncommon, however, to find one with quite as many strings to their bow as Warwick Little, who founded Little Brewing with wife Kylie in 2007. Try time spent as a paramedic and dabbling with radiography, physics, chemistry and microbiology, as well as several years studying wine science, and you've got a pretty colourful past.
Nothing, however, seems to have sparked the same passion as the brewing of beer, with the resultant brews helping the Littles become serial award winners.
The twin core ranges under the Wicked Elf and Mad Abbot banners were embellished by later releases including a series of IPAs.
In 2017, however, with the business in financial difficulties new owners took over to inject fresh funds into the business, with Warwick and Kylie later leaving.
