Mineral waters formed through volcanic fire and glacial ice are brewed with New Zealand's finest hops, malts and yeast.

Tours operate daily at 11am and 1pm, except Tuesdays (closed). Duration 1 - 1.5 hours depending on how interactive you want to be with the brewmaster.

Our on-site Brewery includes Brewery Tours, Taupo's only trout giftware shop, liquor outlet and Bier Kafe. The Bier Kafe is an Austrian Alpine styled bar/cafe serving our own 7 crafted beer/cider on tap along with a beer matched menu - famous for freshly baked pretzels and gourmet wood fired pizzas; locally roasted coffee and homemade chocolates and other treats.
