Known for his tie dye overalls and quirky beers, Kerry started out home brewing before taking the plunge into contract brewing as Choice Bros. After getting a reputation for his interesting beers, Kerry was employed as the brewer at Te Aro Brewing Co, we he brewed and developed the Te Aro recipes until moving onto building Choice Bros brewery, mid 2016.
Kerry’s approach to brewing is ‘interesting beers with balance’. Kerry’s beers picked up numerous medals at his debut at the 2015 New Zealand Brewers Guild Awards including 3 Bronze and 3 Silver medals, as well as a Silver medal at the Australian International Beer Awards 2016.
With a solid background in global financial markets, hospitality and various other nefarious activities, Mike is well versed in the operational and administrative dark arts in which Kerry feigns disinterest. More librarian than Rock Star, Mike aspires to one day be allowed to design a beer referencing more refined musical tastes than those of his fellow Head Bro.
Mike spends his days quietly tinkering away in the background on the more glamorous aspects of the business, from logistics, sales and marketing, through to book keeping and financials. His extensive knowledge and faultless eye for detail makes him paramount in ensuring the smooth day-to-day operation of Choice Bros.
