Abandoned Brewery 
It was a dream abandoned in a place joy forgot. Among the cobwebs and grime in an old factory in Epuni, Lower Hutt were the remnants of a brewery left for dead. A hapless experiment, an abandoned jumble of mismatched parts, the broken bones of a brewery lay forgotten. Brought back to life but this time done right. Abandoned Brewery, a true micro-brewery with a never-say-die attitude and a deep belief in the craft, an arsenal of ideas and calm amongst the chaos…this monster lives - Abandoned Brewery 2017.
