A bit about me...

Phil Hanlen

He was born and bred in Gisborne, and came to Wellington in 1972 and never left!

His  wife was responsible for getting him to home brewing and bought him his first beer starter kit in 1997 and so began his interest and passion for home brewing. After 30 years in the telecommunications industry, he decided to make a lifestyle change and bought the Great Expectations store in 2006.
 

I love dark beers, either a bock, porter or stout although these days I enjoy a good Tennessee Bourbon & Coke Zero. I'm a keen video/photographer always up for the odd road trip around our beautiful country and also enjoy the sport of geo-caching when I get the time.

 

Happy brewing,
