Renaissance draws from a wide group of individuals, with diverse backgrounds and skills, to turn outstanding raw materials into world leading beverages.
The beers are based on English and American style ales, with a focus on Kiwi ingredients. At the forefront is a focus on achieving balance of flavour.
The beers we produce are wide ranging and varied. We believe there is something for everyone in our range, from big hoppy Pale Ales, malty Dark Ales and crisp refreshing European styles.
Renaissance is currently holder of Champion New Zealand Brewery from the NZ Beer Awards and recently won the Champion International Small Brewery at the Australian International Beer Awards for the second year running.
All 2014 shareholders will receive special shareholder pricing on beers through our website and occasional shareholder offers.
2014 shareholders purchasing 1,000 shares ($2000 value) or more through this offer - for every increment of 1,000 shares, you will receive one free 12 bottle mixed case of standard range beer a year, delivered anywhere in New Zealand, all taxes paid. This case has a RRP of $100, so you can work out the ROI on this benefit alone. (2 x Discovery, Perfection, Voyager, Stonecutter, Elemental and MPA).
All 2014 shareholders will have access to very limited release shareholder beers that are in the pipeline. The first beer off the rank here will be a Brandy Barrel Aged Craftsman that has been maturing in Johannshoff brandy barrels since spring 2013. Being a shareholder (or friends with a generous shareholder) is the only way you will be able to get your hands on these beers.
All 2014 shareholders will be invited to the Renaissance Annual Shareholders Get-Together that will take place in Marlborough each year, where we discuss Renaissance, talk craft beer, drink craft beer, eat good food, taste limited release beers, listen to music and generally have a good time.
Founded in 2005 by brothers-in-law Andy Deuchars and Brian Thiel, Renaissance has been grown from a passion to produce craft beers with New Zealand’s best locally sourced hops.
Several of those now involved in Renaissance have had significant parts to play in the successes of the Marlborough wine industry. This is a great adjunct to the brewing skills and experience Renaissance’s management has in being a leader of the New Zealand Craft Beer revolution.
The board comprises two non-executive directors in Gareth Lyne (Chairman) and David
Pearce. Both are respected and experienced food and beverage industry professionals.
The remainder of the board is made up of Andy Deuchars (Head Brewer) and Brian Thiel (CEO). Roger Kerrison (Development Manager) acts as an alternate.
The directors of Renaissance brewing and its executive shareholders intend to perform their current roles for the duration of the 3 year strategic plan.
Renaissance is holding the following investor sessions where you can meet their team, and also ask the Snowball Effect team any questions about equity crowdfunding.
It's crucial for you to understand the characteristics and risks of this investment opportunity. New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to provide in-depth information to investors before they invest. The usual rules do not apply to offers by companies through Snowball Effect. As a result, you may not be given all the information you need to make an informed decision. Investing is risky. Some of the key risks include loss of capital, illiquidity, lack of returns, dilution, loss of key people and customers, and lack of control. You should only invest money that you can afford to lose.
