Freddy Gull

Brewmeister for the Stone Money Brewing Company

freddy_breweryBorn in Zurich, Switzerland on the 24th of April 1945 and after high school in Zurich, attended chef’s apprentice school at the Gewerbeschule. From there Fredy worked his way up to Executive Chef positions with such organizations as Hyatt Regency Bali, Hyatt Regency Kota Kinabalu and Shangrila Fiji and the Palau Pacific Resort. After a little over 20 years in the kitchen, Fredy decided to make a career change and became a PADI dive instructor. He first came to Yap as Dive Operations Manager for Yap Divers in 1994 and has been with us since that time.

In 1999, we began the Stone Money Brewing Company and in September of 2001, Fredy officially took over as Brewmeister and has been producing European quality beers since that time. The current micro brewery, located in the new lobby of the Manta Ray Bay opened for business with our first brew on February 14, 2006 and Fredy currently produces a little over 250 liters a week but has the capacity to double that.

Quote:I enjoy this position because it combines my past training and skills as a chef with my love of beer and my background in the hospitality industry. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than watching people at the Crow’s Nest bar enjoying my beer and listening to their comments. Come visit us and taste for yourself our freshly brewed Lager beers. Remember our slogan – drink, pee and repeat.

We stayed at the hotel and dove with Manta Ray divers in early December 2017. The hotel is very comfortable, well run and staffed with wonderful employees. During our visit my wife came down with an illness and the consideration and support from the hotel and dive staff could not have been better.read more

The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Food is good, (worth upgrading to include all meals). Diving is good too.read more

The best place to stay in Yap. The resort is really nice and clean, the scuba diving is great, and the docked ship that houses the bar, restaurant, and movie screen is very cool. I really enjoyed my stay here.read more

Offers one of the best accommodation service. It also has a uniquely designed restaurant.

The whole place centers around the scuba diving operation. Probably better to find somewhere else if you're not a diver. The dive operation was generally good, but a little too laid back - schedules weren't always clear, and sometimes would change without any notice. Sometimes it was hard to tell if this was really because of changing tides/weather or because of the island pace of life. Pizza is a surprisingly good option at the restaurant.read more
