Kelly Ryan starts as new brewer at the Fork

Kelly Ryan starts as new brewer at the Fork

3 June 2014

Wellington’s Fork & Brewer brewpub is delighted to announce that Kelly Ryan started today as our new brewer. Ryan is a talented and highly regarded brewer with experience working around New Zealand and the United Kingdom. His beers and ciders have won multiple awards at major beer shows. He’s even been called a “bit of a brewing rock star.”

A big fan of the brewpub concept where beer is made right on the premises, Ryan says he is excited to be making beer in the heart of Wellington, looking forward to producing beers which get customers excited, and pleased to working with people as passionate about craft beer as he is.

Despite his youthful good looks, Kelly has a distinguished brewing history with stints at Tui/DB, Fyne Ales (UK), Thornbridge (UK), Epic Brewing Company and the Good George brewpub in Hamilton.

Ryan says he loves Wellington and the Wellington beer scene because “it’s where it is all happening.” His first challenge will be keeping up the quality of the existing Fork beers such as Base Jumper APA and Bohemian Hipster Pilsner while also introducing his own recipes and creations. Ryan wants to make beers which “create a bit of a buzz.”

Director Colin Mallon says the Fork & Brewer team are proud to have been able to attract a brewer of Ryan’s calibre. “Kelly is an outstanding brewer and we are thrilled to have him on board. He will bring expertise, experience and creativity to our 1,000 litre on-site micro-brewery. An in-house brewery means our beers only travel metres from tank to tap. This is a key feature of the Fork & Brewer as a craft beer destination.”

“Kelly Ryan will make a huge contribution to the Fork and I can’t wait to taste his first brew,” Mallon says.
