Hi folks, 

Is it just us, or is spring almost in sight? The days are getting longer, and our pint pouring hand is beginning to thaw. We can't complain though - we have plenty going on to keep us busy. So here's a little update from us:


We're stoked to be taking part in Beervana this year. We've brewed a berry sour especially for the occasion. We'll be doing a few giveaways and having lots of fun. You can't make it?....Sad! Buy your tickets here http://www.beervana.co.nz and then come give us a big high five at stand number 57.

Beer of the Month

This month, Pilsner is taking centre stage. Packed full of Riwaka, Motueka and Nelson Sauvin hops, we're proud of our tribute to New Zealand style Pilsner brewing. We'd be honoured to show you just how crisp and refreshing this beer is, so pop by the shop - or check your local beer outlet and grab a taste. 

Burger Culture

We're so pleased for our friends at Burger Culture - the launch of this brand new burger joint in the heart of Nelson's CBD has gone swimmingly. Have you been? Fresh burgers, indulgent doughnuts and all your favourite Hop Federation beers. You might even spy Simon in there sampling the menu and seeing how it all pairs with his brews. Any excuse aye?

West Coast IPA Challenge

Simon had a blast at the Malthouse in Wellington for the Annual West Coast IPA challenge. Huge shoutout to Colin for organising such a brilliant event. If you'd like to taste some of the beer we brewed exclusively for this event, you can pick up a fresh rigger fill at the shop in Riwaka.
