Bach Brewing is a family-owned gypsy brewing company located between the shores of Auckland’s harbours. Our passion is brewing fresh aromatic beer that compliments our coastal way of living.
Craig Cooper is proudly born & bred in Hawkes Bay and is also fortunate to have lived in many cities around the world pursuing a career in what he loves – beer and spirits. Growing up in New Zealand also gave him a great appreciation for its coastal lifestyle – early years spent at his grandparents bach on the Mahia Peninsula, and following years staying with mates in baches at Waimarama and other iconic kiwi locales. These experiences created a deep passion for craft beer along with the lifestyle associated with the sea, lakes, beaches and coastline.
Like some other leading craft beers, Bach Brewing has chosen to contract brew our beers with one of the best in the brewing business; Steam Brewing Company in Auckland. Nigel, Shane and the brewing team at Steam have won hundreds of awards over the last decade including their own former Cock’n Bull beers and other contract brewed beers. Czechmate Pilsner won its two back to back trophies for best international style lager and was brewed at Steam in 2006 and 2007.
