Hop'n'Vine launch United Brewing Company
Chris and Kevin from Hop’n’Vine are excited to announce the birth of the United Brewing Company. The boys spent yesterday with Norm from Catlins Brewery and are excited to announce a contract brewing deal that will see Hop‘n’Vine produce their own beers under their United Brewing Company brand.
“Producing our own beers has always been something we wanted to do but the time and cost involved in establishing a brewing operation was not something we were going to be able to commit to anytime soon, so the opportunity to contract brew with Norm and get our beers out to the market this year is very exciting,” Said Kevin.
Yesterday was spent discussing recipes and of course sampling a few products for inspiration, “Kevin and I know what we like, and we know what we want to produce. Norm has a great wee set up and he has the technical expertise and understanding of the brewing process to translate what we want into a physical product,” Chris said.
The first beer going into production is being kept under wraps for now but Kevin has said all will be revealed over the coming weeks, so watch this space.
