TWO BLOKES.
ONE PASSION.

CRAFT BEER.

Hello and Welcome to brew stories.

We are Dean and Rich. Two ordinary blokes who knew nothing about craft brewing – we just liked the product. So we set out to learn more about the places and the people that create our favourite drink. If you too love a brew (or two) then you’re in the right place! Join us on a journey of discovery through the magical world of craft beer.
