Christopher Barber

Owner and Head Brewer Christopher opened Zeelandt Brewery in Eskdale, Hawke’s Bay in August 2012 to showcase the ‘true to style’ brewing philosophy that inspired him while travelling through Europe.
First working at St Austell Brewery in Cornwall UK in 2004, Christopher continued to hone his skills at Hallertau Brewery, Auckland before returning to the UK to complete his Diploma in Brewing Technology.
Christopher invites you to join the movement to re-introduce full flavoured, true to style beer to discerning consumers both in Hawke’s Bay and throughout New Zealand.
