Dead Good Beer is one of a new wave of craft brewing companies commonly called a “virtual brewery”. A “virtual brewery is one that contracts an actual brewery to make their beer for them. The level of involvement of the virtual brewery, in the brewing process varies greatly from “Make me a beer” to full hands on brewing. Dead Good Beer falls somewhere in the middle of this scale.
Dead Good Beer Events Ltd, was created in 2007 by local beer enthusiasts Mic Dover and Eelco Boswijk to run regular beer tasting events and beer festivals in the Nelson region. Mic and Eelco are also co-owners of Nelson’s only free house pub, The Free House, untied to any brewery.
