Our Story – From Kitchen to Microbrewery
There’s no way of dressing it up, when you hit your 40’s you start to reflect on where you are in life. Half way between your carefree 20’s and looming retirement you wonder what the hell you’ve been up to the last 20 years.
Having spent the best part of this time in IT, I was looking for something more fulfilling, something fun to get my teeth into. The prospect of spending my entire live in front of computer terminal was a little bit daunting, to say the least.
It would be fair to say that I had talked about setting something up a few times, but not really got off my backside to do anything about it.
I made the decision that I would set up a microbrewery, something really local, in Christchurch, for Christchurch, beer the way it used to memade. It would be fun, hard work, but definitely fun.
My blog ‘From Kitchen to Microbrewery’ is my story, warts and all. It’ll detail my steep learning curve, everything I experience along the way. I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I do, and I would love to hear your thoughts and any suggestions.
