Garage Project's aim is to create unique and beautiful beers, to push boundaries, reinterpret styles and challenge the notions of what beer can be. To date the brewery has created over 300 different beers. The brewery has grown considerably since 2011, winning the Deloitte Fast 50 in 2015 with over 660% annual growth, and distribution in New Zealand, Australia, Norway, Sweden and California.
The Local favourites and champions of brewing in Gisborne. Sunshine Brewery has been turning out delicious batch-brewed beer using all natural ingredients since 1989. We’re pretty sure that makes them the second oldest independent brewery in New Zealand.
From smuggling flagons into local beer events, to delivering kegs in between classes – ParrotDog was going well when the charm of reality hit – they needed more space to brew more beer. The commitment was made and out of a huge empty space the brewery was born in the heart of Wellington city. Things are ticking along nicely.
It is the many classic beer styles found throughout Europe that inspire Zeelandt Brewery. From the ales of Great Britain to the lagers of Germany, we recreate these styles by delving into their history and discovering what inspired these brewers and who was the beer they brewed intended for.
Duncan’s Brewing Company
Duncan's is a family owned micro-brewery located on the Kapiti Coast. Owned and operated by George Duncan and Wai Familton, Duncan’s is the result of a 22,000 km road trip circumnavigating the USA, where they drank their way through a multitude of sessionable and sometimes questionable beer offerings. Clearly, a beer obsession was born.
From the east coast in Havelock North. Giant brewing began in a household shed before moving early 2014 into a 100-year old barn in the Havelock North Hills under Te Mata peaks “Sleeping Giant”. A lot of experimenting took place.
A group of friends started Good George because they wanted to make beer that was truly world class. Now that this dream has been confirmed by them winning numerous awards but they’re far too modest to go into them here*.
Just like that time a man screamed “You’re in the jungle, baby!” at Axl Rose, sometimes a chance encounter can tap you into a new zone of creative inspiration. Such was the case for musos-turned-brewers Abe and Jase from Bassline, based Wellington, New Zealand. Rumour has it one even lives in the East Coast.
Abandoned Brewery, a true micro-brewery with a never-say-die attitude. A belief in the craft, an arsenal of ideas and calm amongst the chaos…this monster. Found in an on-stage and in the bar at Wellington legend bar San Fran, and around liquor outlets in the city if you’re lucky enough.
The brewery was established in 2004 on the site of what was once a local timber mill established in the 1860’s. Our brewing is underpinned by this heritage of craftmanship and tenacity.
In February 2016 the brewery moved from the original site in Leigh, to new premises just out of Matakana.
After meeting Dean and Kerry at their Tory st Brewery, I had to invite them up. Mean Juice was just too good. This is the start of something, probably. This is two ordinary people, opening a new business. Just regular people, like you or me, except they're making very, very good beer.
Influenced by the wide and varied flavours of craft beers around the globe, from village breweries in rural England to monasteries in Bavaria and alpine craft bars in the Rocky Mountains, Jarred and Paul started brewing their own beers, with a kiwi twist. Our enthusiasm was born in this awesome country and inspired from friends here and around the globe and our inspiration remains the same, to fuel our favourite beer styles with exciting flavours. We hope you continue to enjoy!
