Chris Ormond

Giant Brewing began trading on a small scale at the start of 2015. Set up by brewer Chris Ormond, his brother Tom and friend George Mackenzie, the business now operates with a mix of contract and small scale brewing. Giant Brewing supplies the on and off license trade mainly in Hawke's Bay, but also has a handful of outlets from Waiheke Island to Wellington. Chris entered the beer industry with a media background, but had done plenty of brewing at home, followed up with a week long master brewing course, before taking it commercial.
