    my Story

    Hi! I’m Shepy. Born and raised in Rotorua, New Zealand. I have lived in Interlaken, CH for 24 years & now hold Swiss & NZ passports.

    I love travelling & Sport, especially combining them. At school I played rugby, cricket, field hockey and water polo. Presently my big sporting passion is Kitesurfing…. I tend to base all of my holidays around sport, I have been lucky enough to kite in Egypt, Bahamas, Florida, Thailand, Vietnam, NZ, Australia, UK and throughout Europe.

    Favorite spot: Bahamas! hands down one on the most amazing spots I have kited.

    Why? Uncrowded, great wind, cleanest most amazing water I have seen and never cold

    Outside of sports, I’m the Founder & Brewer at Barrel Brewing and with my beautiful wife we own Hüsi Bierhaus & Funky Chocolate Club in Interlaken.

    my beer of choice & why

    Fluid Sunsets. I love a big bold HOP BOMB. Big in Alcohol and big in flavor


    In terms of sport…. nothing really! But I love to play and compete.
