Our People

Simon Bretherton

Simon Bretherton

Brewer

As a schoolboy, Simon knew he wanted to be a brewer. He did a college placement at John Smith's brewery in Tadcaster, UK. Joined Boddington's Brewery (Chemist) after finishing Uni. After a short spell in the brewhouse at JW Lees (Manchester) Brewery he moved to NZ Brewery Manager at Harrington's from 2007. Simon was the head brewer with Little Creatures in Fremantle at the time of their humble beginnings in 2002. After an extremely productive six years there, Simon moved on to do some consulting in both Australia and NZ and had a couple of years in the malting industry prior to joining the Cassels team in late 2011.

Cameron Burgess

Cameron Burgess

Brewer

The newest addition to the Cassels & Sons brewing team. With a pedigree of home-brew success and experience working at Central City Brewing in Vancouver, Canada, Cameron brings a wealth of insight to the team. His penchant for surfing, pilsner and pH meters keeps everyone in high spirits. His rapier wit is only bested by his beaming smile.

Dave Manthei

Dave Manthei

Brewer

The only American on the Cassels & Sons brewing team. A relatively recent convert to the world of brewing, he previously built and practically discarded a career in IT. He has opted to fulfill the token "bearded brewer" stereotype, much to the delight of the uninitiated viewing public. His background in IT and organizational systems has been applied throughout the growing brewery. He is fully willing to accept unsolicited high-fives.
