WELCOME TO HOP FEDERATION!

We’re a small craft brewery with a sense of adventure and a passion for making stylish beers with substance. Located in Riwaka, in the idyllic Top of the South, we’re surrounded by hop growers and orchards, and a stone’s throw from beaches, national parks and lots of great recreation destinations. We opened our doors in September 2013 so we’re relatively youthful, but we’re seriously dedicated to the art and craft of brewing.  

We use mostly New Zealand hop varieties, our malts come from across New Zealand, and we think our beers capture the spirit and lifestyle of this special region.
