Our products are entirely hand crafted using traditional skills and techniques. The skill of our master brewers, the quality of our local ingredients, and a continual quest for perfection are what give our beers their distinctive freshness and character.

None of our beer is filtered or pasteurised. We believe that the most important ingredient in our recipe is time. Our brews are left to naturally clarify and for flavours to develop.

We brew in very small batches to ensure continual freshness at the point of sale. We take exceptional care from grain to glass to make sure to finished product is as perfect as it possibly can be.

Core Range - NZ Pale Ale

To make this NZPA we use 4 types of malt and 4 types of hops, all grown in New Zealand. This unique combination produces a beer full of subtle sweet caramel favours and a pleasant mouth feel, combined with a refreshingly striking hop aroma and taste.

Core Range - Oatmeal Stout

Made from NZ malted Barley, NZ Oats and nest NZ Hops this is pure kiwi at its best. Rich with roasted coffee and chocolate flavours, this beer is smooth and rewarding, with a great mouthfeel.

Core Range - Red Rye IPA

This beer began its life as our American Amber concept brew. With further refinements the beer’s popularity grew. Now you hold the end result: A full on hoppy red ale packed with loads of rye, delicious local malt and U.S. hops.

Core Range - Hop Helmet IPA

This beer began its life as one of our Beerhouse concept brews. The Helmet brand is a nod to Clayton’s father, a former policeman who also liked to dabble in homebrewing. A hoppy punch in the bobby’s helmet that will leave you hurting for more.

Core Range - Kölsch

A kiwi spin on a German classic. Enjoy the summer fruit and honey notes with a hint of wheat, for that distinct European character.
