Why are we here? Why are any of us here? These are the universal questions that sit at the heart of the human condition. We don’t profess to have the answer. We’re only simple beer makers after all.
But we do know a couple of things. We know our community, for one.
And we know, that what got us here, to Leeds Street, and now increasingly in front of beer drinkers around the country was passion. A passion to share what we do well. Some call it ambition. Making good beer accessible for all. It’s our little crusade. One sip at a time.
For us, a crusade takes on the odds. It stands up against the bland. The average. The ‘it’s-ok’ view on life is not for us. And ‘it’s-ok’ beer is not ok for you.
This is why we celebrate those who like us, seek to make their mark on the world. Those who do. The Kiwi’s who create the extraordinary. The ‘I’m going to give it a crack’, ‘go hard’, ‘go all in’ types. You know who you are. Those who determine, often despite the hand they’ve been dealt, to push for more.
And the one thing we’ve noticed, is that fortune seems to favour them. It takes boldness, bravery and some say luck, to succeed. We believe you create your own luck – and that you make your own fortune.
So why are we here? Why are any of us here? It’s to make our mark. Big. Small. Good. Great. Its what we are striving to do. And share with the world.
We are not hand crafted. We are self-made. And we are on a mission to share our love for good beer.
