The Story behind the Finders Keepers label

Finders Keepers is the first of a new series of limited one-off beer styles with custom designed labels created by leading Hawke’s Bay artists.  The Finders Keepers label was designed Steve Wheeler, an artisan knife smith & sculptor.


Steve Wheeler – Artist

With the extraordinary ability to craft custom hunting and decorative knives, Steve made all the knives, forks, spoons and carvery gear for Hobbit. Having become quite a regular appearance at Zeelandt Brewery at the end of the working week, and knowing he had more strings to his bow, we challenged Steve to create the artwork for Finders Keepers.
