enjoy our selection of

award winning craft beers

and delicious food

17 Gateway Crescent, Coastlands, Whakatane

Tasting Room

We have a variety of pizza’s, pies and toasties available to accompany your craft beer tasting tray.

Or take home some freshly poured craft beers in either riggers or bottles


West End Lager

West End Lager is a perfect beer to enjoy after a surf or chill out day on the beach.  This Lager was brewed to celebrate 15 years of brewing in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, and as a homage to our local Ohope Beach.


Berry Sundae

Berry Sundae is laden with buckets of delicious locally grown hand-picked mixed berries.  We’ve added milk sugar for an ice cream and tart berry coulis sensation.  Pours a gorgeous purple/red with a pink head.



A hoppy fix for beer lovers who want the flavour of an IPA without the higher alcohol content

Kapai is full of aromatic hops with a biscuity malt finish

Kapai – Meaning Good


Tumeke! NZ IPA

Massive flavours and aromas of tropical fruit salad from a huge load of NZ Hops dominates this tasty Tumeke! IPA, followed by a malty backbone and crisp bitter finish

Tumeke! Meaning – Too Much!  Awesome


Matawhaka Imperial IPA

A big bold full flavoured imperial IPA.

We source the most aromatic big ace hop varieties we can find for every batch from NZ & USA to satisfy those who crave that big hoppy hit


Manuka Golden Ale 

A smooth clean tasting golden ale edged with a hint of nz’s native manuka honey.

The addition of aromatic manuka honey gives this beer distinctive herbal notes

First commercial manuka honey beer in NZ
