Like any decent band from the 90’s, the Cowabunga team honed their equipment and skills in garages over the last ten years. They’ve been known to attach mixing spoons to power drills and stretch their minds to solve brewing problems in all manner of weird and innovative ways.
The Cowabunga story began with another classic kiwi OE inspiring great things. In this case, one man was inspired to become a brewer by the incredible Austin craft beer scene. Over the past ten years this rookie brewer became passionate about learning to brew, researching and learning through trial and error.
This passion, as well as a shared interest in all things beer, music, pop culture and video games, brought more friends into the garage. Over time, they honed their techniques and unique recipes and started taking out competitions, spawning the idea to finally take things commercial.
