If we told you that Good George was the best thing to come out of Hamilton, you’d probably think for a minute then make a joke about how we don’t have much competition. That’s okay, we can handle it. When you come from a city that boasts a bridge called Bridge Street Bridge, you learn quickly not to take life too seriously.
We’re serious about brewing though. A group of friends started Good George because we wanted to make beer that was truly world class. Now that this dream has been confirmed by us winning numerous awards we’re far too modest to go into here*, our next job is to spread the word.
There’s a bit of chemistry to brewing, but you shouldn’t need a chemistry degree to enjoy it (or to read the list of ingredients). Beer shouldn’t be boring, but nor should it be intimidating – we’re not afraid to challenge your tastebuds now and then but that should be an enjoyable experience, not a scary one.
And jokes aside, we love our home town. We reckon we could even convince you to love it too, though that’s a conversation for another time. Today it’s an easy sell: world-class beer, fresh and original, and proudly brewed in Hamilton.
