Located in the village of Riwaka, our brewery is in the heart of hop and orchard country and on the way to some of the best recreation in the Top of the South. We’re on the main road to Golden Bay, the Abel Tasman National Park and Kaiteriteri’s popular beaches and mountain bike park, and just a short detour from the Great Taste Cycle Trail.

We love having visitors, so make us your destination, or drop in next time you’re passing through. You can sample our range of ales in our tasting room and buy our beers to take away. 



Open Daily from 11am to 6pm

Except Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Christmas Day 

Anzac Day Open 1pm - 6pm 


We’d like to help you appreciate the subtleties and complexities of our craft beers by sampling them. We offer in store tastings of everything in our range, (this may include a special one off brew or a limited seasonal beer) and we enjoy chatting with you about them and hearing your feedback.


All our beers are available for sale at the brewery in 500 ml bottles, 1.3 litre and 2 litre riggers.  Why not try one of each in our special mixed four-pack of 500 ml bottles or order a case of single bottles or a mixed case. You choose.

If you would like to:

  • let us know how much you enjoy our beers
  • ask a question
  • enquire about offering Hop Federation beers in your bar, restaurant, supermarket or bottle store
  • come and visit us

… or anything else, please get in touch with us directly.
