In what will be Neils’ first beer release in over a year 16 Tun is proud to host the man himself as he launches Pot Hole Porter with us on Friday 24th July from 5pm. We’re hoping he comes down on his keg delivery system – or a moped as it is more commonly known. He’ll of course have to UBER home afterwards.

Brewed out of Kereru this beer will be a collaboration with Kelly Milligan, a man who won a Gold at the SOBA National Home Brew Competition in 2013 with this beer.

That said the Schipper’s version will be using all New Zealand hops as opposed to the American Hops Kelly used a couple of years ago.

About Schipper’s Beer

In 2011 Niels Schipper was a freelance photographer, i.e. underemployed.

To stave off boredom, and armed only with a few books and a slightly obsessional nature, he decided to make some beer in his laundry. Using a chilli-bin, a tea-urn, and a lot of trial and error, Niels finally emerged with a brew that was, quite simply, beautiful.

It went on to win a big New Zealand brewing prize, and next thing he’s on TV and taking calls from newspapers and magazines all around the country.

Schipper’s was born, and overnight Niels had become a full-time craft beer maker.

His passion for meticulous note taking and commitment to crafting the perfect beer has now resulted in a range of premium brews to tempt every jaded palate.

Things have scaled up slightly, but one thing is still the same – every Schipper’s beer is still conceived, adjusted, balanced and personally tested by Niels in that same small laundry.
