Behemoth brewery is the brainchild of the 1.98m Andrew Childs, a.k.a. Beer Giraffe. This keen home brewer was one of the winners on the day at the Wellington In A Pint competition, with his cunningly monikered ‘Celia Wade Brown Ale’. Let's face it, a sense of humour is seemingly everything in the world of craft beer.
Brewing was not Andrew's first career choice; he started off in law as a policy analyst in the public service. Well, of course that sort of job is going to drive you to drink, so he packed it in to pursue his passion for brewing (because, as we all know, the best pastimes are those that don't actually feel like work), founding Behemoth in May 2013. The official Beer Giraffe agenda involves the production of big-flavoured beers, a promise he delivers on in emphatic fashion.
