Just like that time a homeless man screamed “You’re in the jungle, baby!” at Axl Rose, sometimes a chance encounter can tap you into a new zone of creative inspiration. Such was the case for musos-turned-brewers Abe and Jase from Bassline Brewing, based in Karori, Wellington.
For these guys, blowing off some creative steam used to mean picking up an instrument - or at least that was the case until the pair were each gifted a bottle of mindblowing local homebrew. From there, the pair were hooked and quickly took to experimenting with creative brews of their own.
Both Abe and Jase started off as solo artists, but quickly found that collaboration made for both better times and better beer. For this brew-duo, crafting a tasty drop didn’t feel so different from a good jam session. When you have the theory down, there’s no limit to the flavours you can start riffing with. From Gorse Flower Lagers to Peruvian Purple Corn Pilsners, Abe and Jase quickly developed a taste for pushing the envelope and pursuing the flavours they weren’t finding in commercial beer. And just like that, Bassline Brewing was born.
Whether you’re a sucker for a crowd-pleasing anthem or you prefer your beer with a funkier, more experimental bent, Bassline is all about making beer that is as diverse as the sounds Abe and Jase love. For them, brewing really is like music; as much an art as it is a science. Show Less
