Co-owner and current brewer, Belinda was a wine maker for many years which contributed to her love of good beer (it takes a lot of great beer to make a good wine!) Belinda has worked as a winemaker in Europe, NZ and the USA.
It was while Belinda and Kieran were living in California that they became interested in brewing. Belinda was the winemaker at Muddy Water for 11 years, but when the winery changed hands it seemed a good time resign and follow her brewing passion.
Brewers have much more fun! Belinda is now the “Brewster” (female brewer - traditionally beer was brewed by women).
