Of all the 'bigger and better' things we looked forward to manufacturing topped our list.
But if there's a hard way to do things we'll find it, and even at bigger scale we can't stop making.
That's because we want our beer to celebrate our place. When we brew our Cherry Sour, for example, you'll enjoy a beer with lapin cherries from Sarita Orchard, Cromwell (thanks Matthew!).
And while it takes time and effort to, say, pit 25 kg of cherries or pick 4.5 kg of elder flowers, we find it hugely satisfying when it adds a subtle distinction to our beer.
It's a subtlety you don't get from off-the-shelf purees, syrups, or concentrates, and a distinction you can't get from imported ideas and ingredients.
It's beer made here with ingredients from here.
Fresh off the tap, it's really rewarding.
