We’re a small brewing company based in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. Made up of 3 dudes who
have been involved from the very start, Shiggy, Jordan and Dylan.
It’s been quite the process getting to where we are today! We started all the way back in May 2012,
launching a black IPA in Wellington where we were based. Basically, we kept plugging away, using
other people’s breweries to make our beer for the next 3 years, releasing a new beer every couple of
months, and just having a heap of fun playing around. Until we decided we wanted our own spot, so
we could have ability to craft our own beers all the way through the process. From start to finish.
We took over an existing brewery in Grey Lynn on Christmas Eve in 2015. Putting down our first beer
that very same day. It’s a beaut 1200L CLE kit, and very good quality.
Fast forward to May 2017, right around our 5 th birthday. Our lease was cut short, so were left looking
for a new spot to shift all our gear to. We looked around but couldn’t find anything at the time that
suited. Jordy gave his family friend Glenn who owns Mount Brewing Co a buzz, and proposed
teaming up. And that’s what we did.
We moved our gear down, knocked out a few walls to make some more room and reassembled our
brewery in the Mount. Come and check us out at The Rising Tide at 107 Newton St. Grab a couple of
beers, eat some dumplings and enjoy some live music.
