It’s certainly feeling like summer in these southern parts with highs of 22-24degrees hitting our beautiful region and long may it last!

Here’s our monthly update

Le Cafe, Picton - Thursday 2nd November. To kick off the summer (yes in November) we have teamed up with Picton’s very own Le Cafe and have produced a Sparkling Ale for all to enjoy. The official launch will be held on Thursday 2nd November with The Wellington City Shake em on Downers from 8pm. See ya there.


Dunedin Craft Beer & Food Festival - Saturday 11th November This is one of our favourite events on the beer festival calendar and its all happening again on the 11th November. Growing in popularity year on year this awesome event promises great music, great food and of course….. BEER. This year we will have a few faves pouring but we also have the Brewmania  2017 Winner Jamie McQuillan’s Saison Framboise pouring - and if you have ever wondered what that may taste like wonder no more - this crisp farmhouse ale has a dry effervescent finish. Locally grown raspberries were added for a refreshing fruity tang. 


Burger Culture - Nelson - Our good mates at Burger Culture are looking at the summer ahead and have decided to mix up the beers a little. At the start of November our award winning Pale Ale and Pilsner will be pouring on tap along with our refreshing Lager, Rakau IPA and many peoples favourite our signature beer Red IPA. If you haven’t been there yet, make a plan to pop on in next time you are in Nelson. With Trafalgar Street becoming a fully pedestrianised  zone at the end of the month, this is going to be an awesome place to kick back and have a beer (and burger) in the Nelson sunshine.


Get in to the Hop Hub - Due to the popularity of our Hop Hub we thought we would bring the next round a little closer to Christmas, so that we can all enjoy a beer over the summer holiday period. It promises to be full of beautiful summer ales and refreshing brews, all delivered before Christmas Day. So make sure you’re in it to drink it by clicking here >> Join The Hop Hub. All Hop Hub packages will be dispatched on Monday 18th December - straight to your door, no matter where you are in New Zealand. You can order up to 8 riggers - so make a night of it and invite your mates over. If they sign up - you get free delivery on your next order!


We have Summer covered - Just a reminder to all that we are open 7days a week. Our doors open at 11am and close at 6pm. Our tasting room is based in heart of Riwaka’s food hub (Ginger Dynamite Go Go Food & Coffee and Thomas Brothers Ice-cream and Fresh Fruit) and offers up the best and freshest beers every day. No where else can you grab a Hop Federation beer straight from the conditioning tank. The only days we close are Christmas Day and New Years Day, but we think that you will be ok with that.

So that’s it for now. See you in December
