The Tuatara Blog
On Monday 10 May 2010, the Dominion Post reported that "for only the second time in more than 200 years, a baby tuatara has been spotted on the mainland, leading experts to believe there could be more breeding in Wellington. The rare reptiles are usually elusive, but staff at Wellington's wildlife sanctuary Zealandia say the newcomer has been causing a stir through its lack of shyness."
Way back in January, Tuatara Brewing Company decided to put aside our traditional Kiwi modesty and enter the Wellington Gold Awards.
Tuatara is delighted to welcome Mike Neilson on board at our busy brewery. He has made a great start and we thought it would be a good idea for people to get to know him a little better. Here is what the man who is “in pursuit of the perfect pint” had to say:
At Tuatara, we are very proud of the award-winning beers we brew. We are also happy to show people where they are all made.
As announced in last week’s post, Dion Page has finished up at Tuatara Breweries in order to spend some more time with his young family. Before we let him go, we asked a few questions about his time at Tuatara and his plans for the future.
It is a new era at the Official Tuatara Blog. Between August 2009 and February 2010, we managed just two blog posts. Granted, they were both excellent pieces introducing Tuatara Helles, the first new beer to join our range in three years, and a behind-the-scenes look at the founding of Tuatara way back in 2000/2001.
Welcome to the family, Helles. Finally, a sixth food group has been added to the staple diet of the team at Tuatara. After five big, bold beers, we thought it time to take a look at the lighter side of life.
Many of you will now know Tuatara, and many will have tried all of our range of beers. But you may not know how we began.
