Creators of honest Hawkes Bay craft beer since 1995

Quiet achievers of beer greatness

Hawkes Bay is famous for sunshine, great wine and art deco. And now, thanks to Hawkes Bay Brewing Company you can add ‘beer’ to that list.

Since 1995 we have been combining traditional techniques with 100% pure and natural ingredients to brew our beers and ciders. We take great pride in making beers and ciders that you love to drink and judging by the response this simple philosophy seems to be working out pretty well.

Where it all began. We still lovingly brew and keg our beers and ciders on site. But thanks to great support from pubs, clubs, taverns and restaurants with taste we are now being enjoyed over most of the North Island.
