A couple of interesting new items from the in-box here at global headquarters:
The Dominion Post did a profile on the new K.E.A Brewery saying:
“K.E.A. Brewing is the newest kid on the block in New Zealand’s ever-expanding craft brewery market.
It is the shared long-time ambition of Hastings couple Warren and Daveen Elliott, who are looking to make new beers because of New Zealand’s developing taste for flavour.”

Further south, the new 210 litre Slugtrap Brewery in Rosedale produces a variety of real ales and a farmhouse cider. The owner and brewer is Martin Townshend. Full details of the brewery and their tasty sounding brews can be found here.
