Inspired by cool, clear winter nights, camping by the fire, and enjoying what nature has gifted us, The Woodsman Amber Ale is the perfect winter accompaniment.

Lager - IPL (India Pale Lager)
FUSAMI Victory is a hybrid style delivering all the things you know and love about an IPA (hops hops and more hops) with the crisp clean malt character of a Pilsner from a long, cold fermentation. Massive multiple additions of Motueka and Nelson Sauvin plus crazy amounts of Australian and US aroma hops deliver a knockout hop flavour and aroma of stone fruit, mango and angostura bitters creating a perfectly balanced, super clean summer thirst quencher.
"Victory" refers to Wayward's successful battle to maintain our name in the face of a Trademark opposition from brewing giant SAB Miller (India), so raise a glass in celebration of the little guy and our victory in an epic 2 year David-vs-Goliath battle!
