Matt Smith | Brave Brewing Co


Brave Brewing Co. was born in 2014 when New Zealand Champion home brewer Matt Smith and his wife Gemma threw in the towel on Auckland life for a move home to sunny Hawke’s Bay. Since then, Matt has been producing thousands of litres of fresh and delicious craft beer in his tiny, converted garage and supplying to local bars, restaurants and beer lovers. Matt continues to win numerous awards for his beer at the commercial level. In December 2016, Matt fulfilled a long time dream, shifting the brewery into a commercial space in central Hastings, complete with a tasting room/cellar door, and a small kitchen serving delicious beer friendly food.
