Sunshine Brewery

Back in 1989, out east in Gisborne a couple of surfing mates started messing around with brewing and before they knew it they were on a quest to create the perfect lager to help them cope with Gisborne’s famously long, hot summers and great waves.

Before long they realised they were on to something good, so they shelved their surfboards, named their shed “The Sunshine Brewery” and committed themselves full-time to crafting the perfect brew.

Their session lager “Gisborne Gold” quickly attracted a cult like status in Gisborne and beyond, showing up in big city bars like Wellington’s Bar Bodega. A bunch of gold medals were awarded and best of show trophies won during the 90’s and early 2000’s

Jump ahead to 2013, 25 years of brewing, 1700 odd brews and countless summer waves we now see Sunshine Brewery refreshed with renewed investment and energy by a group of Gisborne wine people. The revitalized and repackaged Gisborne range of crafted beers is again showing up in the national market, no longer one of Gisborne’s best kept secrets.

Look out for the limited release Sunrise Project beers like the just released “Bulls Brew Porter” where Steve and Kylie focus on developing flavours and food matching.
