Rochdale Cider Company starts up in Stoke.
Fast forward forty years and Terry and Bev McCashin turn the cidery into a brewery.
Prime minister Robert Muldoon opens the brewery (you can imagine how much he enjoyed his visit).
Macs Real Ale is produced - the first independently brewed beer Kiwis could enjoy in 40 odd years.
Kiwis experience even more variety in the chilly bin with the launch of Macs Gold.
A local glass shortage sends us looking elsewhere, introducing our famous bottle shape.
The Macs brand is sold to Lion and a 10-year lease for our brewery begins.
We take back control of the brewery.
Rochdale Cider rides again!
We also launch Stoke beer.
She’s all go! Because we’re awarded 33rd in the Deloitte Fast50.
We up our game (and workload) by going in on Wakachangi with Leigh Hart.
Woolworths partner with us to develop Scapegoat Cider for the Aussies.
Wakachangi goes global! Well nationwide in Australia at least.
We get a can machine that can bang out 6 cans per second!
