Former All Blacks star Daniel Carter has announced that he has started his own beer company, Bricklane Brew Co.
While still applying his oval-ball trade in Japan with the Kobelco Steelers, the 36-year-old revealed the news on Twitter, confirming that he is expanding his off-field antics into the beer market.
I’m pumped to announce that I’ve started a beer company with some of my mates called @bricklanebrewco ! We’ve been making some high-quality brews in Melbourne, currently available in Aus, and will be available in New Zealand soon. #askforindiebeer #bricklanebrewing pic.twitter.com/BXm7WwRjGM

The brewery, which is based in Australia, has two beers on its roster: a lager and pale ale. The lager is described as a traditional Munich-style ‘Helles’ beer that uses Pillsen style pale malt to deliver a richer and bolder taste; while the ale is said to showcase the blend of Australian and Yakima hops, with a lowe bitterness with a passionfruit, apricot and citrus hop aroma.
Also on the share register with smaller holdings are former All Black Dan Carter, celebrity chef Shane Delia, sports agents Warren Alcock and Dean Hegan of Essentially Group (which was previously headed up by Bart Campbell as CEO) and Kiwi banker Ross McEwan, who is currently CEO of Royal Bank of Scotland.
The beers are only currently available in Australia and New Zealand; but hopefully Mr. Carter can swing some our way next time he’s in the good ole Republic!
