Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN CONTINUED Page 6 Boutique beers brewed in Upper Hutt will be officially launched this week by their local maker. Chris Mills, known to many locals through his involvement with the farmers' market which operated in Upper Hutt for a time, has turned his home brewing hobby into commercial boutique beer production. Named for New Zealand's tradition of beers associated with birds and Upper Hutt's adoption of the kereru, the Kereru Brewing Company is making two pale ales, a stout, a strong Belgian-style ale and a gluten-free golden ale. Mr Mills and his wife Natasha Dah- lberg moved from the United States to New Zealand in 2002 after a downturn in work for their computer graphics busi- ness. They wanted to get into the film indus- try and Mr Mills worked for Weta, Park Road Post and some freelance work for Australian and American customers. The couple still run their business but do not have enough customers to make a living. Mr Mills has been a home brewer for nearly 20 years and decided set up a commercial operation. They have installed in a commercial kitchen and small brewing plant with official registration as a food premises. A Customs licence to make alcohol has been obtained and Mr Mills has applied for a general manager's certificate and off licence. Central to the project is making beers the way Mr Mills likes them. Two pale ales and a stout typify his favourite beers. The most unusual is called Auro, a gluten-free golden ale made from syrup extracted from sorghum, which he imports from the United States. Upper Hutt's Ancient Grains bakery uses Auro in its gluten-free steak and ale pies. But most of his ingredients are sourced locally. Hops and malts are grown in New Zea- land, citrus for the Velvet Boot beer by a neighbour and he grows the coriander seeds himself. Some specialty roasted grains are imported. The couple produce their own labels and can design them for customers want- ing a special beer for a wedding or other function. Mr Mills produces the beers by hand and without automation in a small pilot brew plant which can make no more than 50 litres at a time.
