Box of fresh hops.

Chris has been brewing beer since 1992. In 2010 Chris and his wife, Natasha, turned their garage and rumpus room into a commercial kitchen and built a tiny 50 litre commercial nano-brewery under their house in Silverstream. They named it Kereru Brewing Co. after all the kererus (wood pigeons) in their back garden. (The word kereru is pronounced with the same inflection as caribou or kangaroo.)

In 2013 they moved to a large factory space in Upper Hutt on Maidstone Terrace and built an 1,800 litre (15 barrel) microbrewery. You can see the building process in our photo gallery here. Wherever possible we use New Zealand-sourced ingredients and recapture any clean water from the brewing process for future reuse.
