Kia Ora and Welcome to Beertown NZ!

By BeertownNZ Thu, 04 Jun 2015 National

Beertown NZ is an enthusiastic, subjective, opinionated and independent celebration of New Zealand beer and brewing.

It’s managed by me, Martin Craig, a freelance business journalist and marketeer based in Wellington, New Zealand. I wrote my first craft beer article in 1993, profiling Anchor Brewing in Porirua, NZ. Since then I’ve written for the Listener, North & South, Consumer, ProDesign, NZRetail, Fish & Game, Beer & Brewer, Pursuit of Hoppiness and others. I have also edited Pursuit of Hoppiness and business magazines.

My personal beer career has involved indifferent home brewing and 20 years living within a short walk of the excellent Regional Wines in Wellington. I have judged for Consumer, SOBA, the West Coast IPA Challenge and other events.

All up, Beertown NZ is about good beer and good writing. Enjoy!
