Choice Bros are known for their innovative, experimental and occasional mad beers. With balance and a respect for both malt & hops, the beers created by the Bros have been extremely well received, broadening horizons of many drinkers along the way. After contract brewing at many of their favourite New Zealand breweries including Townshends, Kereru & Panhead, the Bros decided it was time to find their own space - And thus HUSK was born.
Known for his award winning experimental and style-bending approach to brewing, Kerry has attracted international attention over the years. He’s been featured in media such as New York VICE ‘Munchies’ and UK Daily Mail, and has been a key contributor to the New Zealand brewing scene. Kerry has created many connections over the years and collaborated with dozens of breweries from NZ and around the world.
With a diverse approach to brewing across all styles, expect to be challenged with interesting approaches to beer, as well as encountering classic styles.
Kerry is also Head Brewer & Winemaker for his side project, ECHOES Fermentation Project, specializing in wild fermentation, mixed culture and barrel aged beers & wines.
Learning the ropes under Kerry’s guidance, Manaia is now co-filling the brewer role and creating his own recipes.
Manaia is also leading the in-house Kombucha project, experimenting with non/low alcohol creations.
