FOUNDER | BEER | DESIGN

Roughly around 2006/7 when James Squire Golden Ale was the carton of choice before heading out on a Friday evening in Adelaide, Hoegaarden if we were feeling a little more adventurous, or perhaps frivolous, as cartons of this back in the day would set you back close to one hundred dollars. Anyway, this is where the fascination with beer began. Spending a year overseas sampling many more European beers only increased that urge.

However, my true obsession for craft beer exploded while I was working in Hobart for a hospitality based software company. I was very much amongst Dark Mofo and the ‘knee deep in mud’ beer and cider festivals, witnessing their beer scene go from strength to strength. It was there that I got into the beer x social media craze, co-starting an Instagram profile Ales + Tails with some like minded mates, documenting our ever increasing Sunday park beer collection.

After moving back to South Australia I spent some time working for Prancing Pony Brewery in the Adelaide Hills and various bottle shops and cellars across town and this has helped give me a reasonably well rounded appreciation for the industry as a whole.

Over the last few years of guiding people in the early stages of their craft exploration I had an idea for a website and Graild was officially launched (a week before COVID hit Australia hard) in March this year.
