A crisp NZ style pilsner with medium bitterness and a hip-hop burst of citrus hop flavour and aroma from NZ grown Riwaka, Nelson Sauvin and Motueka hop varieties

WAI-ITI Waka NZ Pale Ale

A show case of NZ’s Wai-iti Hop which fills the senses with enticing flavours of mandarin, lime and passionfruit. A delicious Pale Ale to enjoy on any occasion!

Kapai Session IPA

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
