Meet the people behind Change Maker

Four friends from the Kapiti Coast started their craft beer adventure under the name "The Independence Collective" when they brewed a beer for Beervana called Neville.

Fast forward four years and they now own the Change Maker beer brand, which is available online and in retailers nationwide.
