STORy

GIANT BREWING BEGAN IN A HOUSEHOLD SHED BEFORE MOVING EARLY IN 2014 INTO A 100-YEAR-OLD BARN IN THE HAVELOCK NORTH HILLS UNDER TE MATA PEAK’S “SLEEPING GIANT”. A LOT OF EXPERIMENTING TOOK PLACE, SOME BEER WENT DOWN THE DRAIN AND PLENTY WAS CONSUMED IN THE MUSIC SUITE NEXT TO THE BREWING ROOM. WHEN WE DECIDED TO JUMP INTO COMMERCIAL BREWING AND SELL SMALL AMOUNTS OF BEER TO LOCAL CAFES AND BARS WE DISCOVERED THE BARN CAME NOWHERE NEAR MEETING FOOD/BEVERAGE PRODUCTION REGULATIONS. IT HAD GREAT VIEWS AND ACOUSTICS, BUT LACKED COVING, NON-PERMEABLE WALLS AND CEILINGS, ADEQUATE WASTE AND HOT WATER SYSTEMS, A LOO, ETC, ETC. A FEW MONTHS LATER, A SMALL AREA BECAME AVAILABLE AT THE OTHER END OF TOWN IN PART OF THE ORIGIN EARTH MILK AND CHEESE PRODUCTION FACTORY. AFTER WALLING IT OFF, COVING IT, PLUMBING IT, ELECTRIFYING IT AND SECURING IT, OUR BREWING EQUIPMENT WAS TRANSFERRED INTO THE CLEANEST AND MOST FUNCTIONAL ENVIRONMENT IT HAD EVER SEEN. THE SPIDERS, MICE, MOTHS, ANTS AND WASPS WE’D BEEN CO-EXISTING WITH DECIDED TO STAY AT THE PREVIOUS PLACE. THE AIM NOW IS SIMPLY TO MAKE BEER WITH QUALITY INGREDIENTS AND BIG FLAVOUR, AND GET IT FRESH INTO SOME LOCAL ESTABLISHMENTS. IT’S CURRENTLY ONE OF THE SMALLEST COMMERCIAL BREWERIES IN THE COUNTRY. WE CAN’T GIVE UP OUR DAY JOBS JUST YET.
