Cam & Scott at their franciscan Well Launch

Our brewmasters have achieved something special.  Yes, they do make some fantastic tasty beer – but more remarkable than that – they are unique examples of a Kiwi and an Aussie working together in semi-harmony…..well apart from the odd sporting differences

Both Scott and Cam learnt how to make full flavoured beers as home brewers and then studied how to make these tasty beers consistently at the Versuchs und Lehranstalt fur Braurei (“VLB”) institute in Berlin.

Cam, the Aussie, is trained as a chartered accountant – but more of an adventure seeking, sports crazed, beer loving kind of accountant than the nerdy, pale, office bound kind.  Scott, the Kiwi, is a water engineer who tries to mix his loves of epic travel and air guitar at any available opportunity

Brewery

We have purchased a 15 hectolitre (1,500 litre) brewhouse from Carlow Brewing. The equipment was manufactured by Criveller Brewtech an Italian / Canadian company with over 50 years of brewing experience.

We will have the ability to do a double batch (3,000 litres) per brew day, and have tank storage capacity of 15,000 litres consisting of 5 fermenters & 2 bright beer tanks.

We have invested in a Meheen 6 head filler and capper bottling machine capable of bottling over 2,000 x 330ml bottles per hour.

 Our kegging equipment will allow us to clean and fill up to 12 kegs per hour.
