In the same way that many friendships begin, Andy and Ant first met over a beer. Andy (Andrew Larsen) had already spent fourteen years in the beer industry. As a brewer and brewing consultant, his business Breowan Systems is a leading player in everything to do with brewing, and Andy works with fellow brewers all around the globe.
In May 2012, Andy convinced Ant to join him for a week in Melbourne. Good Beer Week to be precise. In 2015, Andy and Ant outgrew their brewery and opened up Juke Joint, their new mothership in Mt Eden. Home to their BBQ smokehouse and new, expanded brewery. They started bottling their beer and got it out to the restaurants, cafes, bars and bottle shops all over Auckland.
