“In 1980 there were only 3 Craft Breweries in New Zealand. In 2011 there were over 50, trending much #craftbeer!”
'Tiamana' is the Maori word for Germany. Head brewer Annika was born and raised in Berlin, her father a brewer at the Schultheiss brewery.
It was only in New Zealand's craft beer scene though that she learned how diverse and interesting beer can be. Tiamana makes German beer styles, drawing on Aotearoa taste and variation, and therefore outside of the strict reigns of the Reinheitsgebot.
