Just kidding... we didn't buy a zoo, but we did buy a brewery! It's very exciting times for Himmel Hund at the moment. As we are growing our business, we recently had the serendipitous fortune of procuring some fantastic pre-loved brewing equipment from our mates at 7Cent Brewery. We couldn't think of a better system to have stumbled across, with many fantastic beers having been brewed on the system already.

I'm really excited to be able to brew seasonal beers, festival beers and some experimental stuff on the side. It also means people can come to the cellar door and taste the beer from the source.
