As a young man, Chris Barnard, founder of Boston Breweries was curious to discover more of the world and see what lay beyond his African home. Having completed his training in computer studies, at age 21, he explored Europe where he tasted and enjoyed many different styles of beer - from a German Dark Weizen to Greek lagers.

Not one to accept things as they are, Chris gradually began experimenting with the brewing process and a few years later, after a fact-finding tour to Southern Germany, Chris purchased a 100 litre system and Brewing began to take place.
