Brand & Brewer’s story
ABC. Abandoned Brewing Co. Story
It was a dream abandoned in a place joy forgot. Among the cobwebs and grime in an old factory in Epuni, Lower Hutt were the remnants of a brewery left for dead. A hapless experiment, an abandoned jumble of mismatched parts, the broken bones of a brewery lay forgotten. Brought back to life but this time done right. Abandoned Brewery, a true micro-brewery with a never-say-die attitude and a deep belief in the craft, an arsenal of ideas and calm amongst the chaos…this monster lives - Abandoned Brewery 2017.
A young punk with a great attitude to life. As a student at Vic Uni, living with Garage Project just around the corner, she fell into brewing. Starting out as a punter she progressed to a brewer and Certified Cicerone® at GP. While working in breweries in Aotearoa and across the ditch she honed her trade. In some ways, her journey in beer has brought her full circle back to her anthropology studies. She froths on exploring the connection between beer and culture. And now as the Head Brewer at Abandoned, she's able to do just that and share her experience, and more importantly her beer, with others.
