Annotation

The life and times of the man who built the modern beer scene in New Zealand, an iconic brewer and businessman – Richard Emerson of Emerson’s Brewery.

Publisher Description

Richard Emerson is one of our pre-eminent brewers, a trailblazer who is often lauded as the godfather of craft beer in New Zealand.

Born profoundly deaf in 1960s Dunedin, Emerson triumphed against all odds to launch Emerson's Brewery in 1992. He went on to create a string of unique, award-winning beers, spark a cult-following, attract global recognition, and become a millionaire - all from doing something he loved.

For Richard, it came after 20 years of unrelenting commitment to the cause of good beer. They were two decades of hard graft, physically and emotionally, of no or low pay, of long hours, during which he watched his father, mentor and friend die just as the business began to stand on its own two feet.

This is the story of an adventurous boy who wouldn't let his disability get in the way of what he wanted to do; a boy who literally fought for his place in the world and refused to let anyone tell him 'no'.
