The Bottleneck is run by Dylan Jauslin. He's the manager of Golding’s Free Dive in Wellington. It all started when I took a trip to Germany after graduating high school. I’d drunk beer before before in New Zealand and never liked it. Frankly I hated it. It was with trepidation then, that I went to a pub in a forest, somewhere in south-west Germany and ordered a beer (I couldn’t legally drink back in NZ so I was making the most of it). It was amber and tasted caramelly, but mostly what I remember how good it was. Holy shit, I didn’t know beer could taste like that. I have no idea what it was, but I will never forget you, random German beer!
