Hello! Beer Jerk was started by a couple of mates back in March 2015 as a side project and a way to share the great beers we discovered with people across New Zealand. Our core subscription product is a little bit like a book club. But with no books.
After a while, people asked if they could buy more than one beer per week from Beer Jerk and we've steadily grown since. We only stock beer from independent breweries as we love knowing the people behind the beers.
We're often surprised when people tell us they think we're a big organisation - Beer Jerk has just 3 full time staff - me (Luke, Director), Matt (Online) & Tom (Fulfilment). We also now have a bar & shop in our Auckland called The Fridge & Flagon which is managed by Rose.
