Sunday History Hit with Thomas Rillstone 

Thomas Rillstone, host of the award winning History of Aotearoa New Zealand Podcast, joins Susana Lei'ataua on The Weekend for the final instalment in our three-part Sunday History Hits series. Across the two instalments so far we've delved into some of Aotearoa's quirky, eccentric and less well known characters. 

Today, Thomas looks at the history of brewing here in Aotearoa including the early brews concocted by Captain Cook in 1772 to prevent his crew members onboard the Resolution succumbing to scurvy. 

Thomas then takes us on a historic tasting tour of well-known beer brewers Speight's and DB Breweries.
