The foundation stone of The Mount Eden Public Library was
laid in 1912. In 1995 Keith Galbraith transformed this historic
building into Galbraiths Alehouse, and in 2016 we celebrate
twenty-one years of his delicious and authentic ales. Growing up
downwind of the Waikato Brewery, the smell of mashing grains
to this day reminds Keith of Hamilton in the 1960s, where his
love affair with brewing was kindled and would develop into a
passion for producing true-to-style brews of the highest quality.
Inspired by European beer styles and dedicated to using
authentic, natural ingredients, the traditional beers of our forebears
once again fill glasses, leading a renaissance of our brewing
heritage in a market flooded with mass-produced beer. Artisan,
boutique, craft, whatever the label, the description is quality.
Twenty-one years down the track, the air is still sweet with malt
in Galbraiths Alehouse, and that deserves a toast. Cheers Keith.
