About Brothers Beer
The present owners, Andrew Larsen (Andy) and Anthony Browne (Ant) first met over a few beers and quickly became friends as they shared the same passions. Further down the track, they discussed starting a business together.
Prior to Brothers Beer, Andy had already worked in the beer industry as a talented brewer and brewing consultant for some 14 years. However, the most important thing for Andy was to have a brewery in his home town. On the other hand, Ant enjoyed a beer after a long day in the office and therefore was drawn to the idea of crafting beer. The two went on a trip to Good Beer Week In Melbourne, Australia where it was made clear that Auckland was missing out on quality beer and good food in their local pubs.
After three months of dreaming and creating, the Retail Store and Beer Tasting Lounge was opened on 5 December. After a successful beginning, in 2015, Brother Beer outgrew the little brewery which led to a new and expanded brewery called Juke Joint and was born in Mt Eden. Soon after, bottles of beer were being sent out to Auckland’s finest restaurants, cafes, bars and bottle shops. It wasn’t long until the Barrel Room in Orakei was created so that the people from the Eastern Bays could enjoy a beer along with one of the best Auckland gourmet burgers to be found.
