HAND CRAFTED BELGIAN STYLE ALES

Have nothing in your tankards that you do not know to be yeastful,

nor believe to be Belgian.    - Shark Dealer

Our intention is to brew small idiosyncratic batches of Belgian inspired ales, without compromise.

 

Craftwork Brewery is a collaborative brewing partnership between Michael O'Brien and Lee-Ann Scotti, founded on 15th March 2014. With a 50 litre Braumeister, we recognise that our capacity is ludicrously uneconomic,but we decided to brew ourselves, from grinding the malt by hand to bottling the finished product.

 

The craft work is a joy, and as we are not indebted, we opted to have a legal brewery in Lee-Ann's stone basement. This allows us in future to consider contract brewing and gives us the flexibility to dedicate the space to sour ales, usually too wild for most contract breweries to risk, if we so choose.

 

Whilst our inspiration is Belgian, and we salute the bold American role models, we like to source the finest malts and adjuncts, organically and locally.

 

Gladfield Malt have been particularly helpful (gladfieldmalt.co.nz). With a wholesale license we anticipate to sell to select bars and restaurants, supporting SOBA ( (www.soba.org.nz).
