Outlier Cartel is a New Zealand craft beer project that I am proud to be part of. It was founded by myself and Carlos de la Barra, friends and former neighbours in Auckland. Carlos and I met at his house warming party in 2012, and my wife and I were the only neighbours (out of 20 doors knocked on) to show up – and the last ones to leave.

The love of quality food and drink was a passion of ours. We had several late night conversations about launching a brewery, and after a few missteps, we finally launched our beer in December 2015.  In 2016, we took on a new partner, a foodie and financial director, Alvin Soh to round up our team.

What makes us Outliers? Here are a few things that make us different:
