Catlins Brewery bring their beer with a story

Among the lesser-known but most intriguing guests at this weekend's Hop'n'Vine event is Kaka Point-based Catlins Brewery.

The brewery was founded in 2014 in the basement of Norm MacLeod’s Kaka Point home, with help from business partner Keith Abbott.

The pair started making home brew in about 2007 and are inspired by the people and landscapes of the Catlins. Their beers reflect this with the likes of Yellow-Eyed Pilsner, White Squall Wheat Beer and Nuggety Black Stout.

Each beer feature a story about a Catlins landscape or historical happening.Among the lesser-known but most intriguing guests is Kaka Point-based Catlins Brewery.
