Welcome to New Zealand's and Australasia's first Certified Organic Brewery. Brewed on location at Founders Heritage Park in Nelson, New Zealand, we make a full range of organic beers for the discerning drinker.

Address: 87 Athawhai Drive, Nelson, New Zealand Nelson Region

Phone: view phone+64-3-548 4638


We source the highest quality, certified organic ingredients: hops grown in Tapawera near Nelson, pale malt grown and malted in Canterbury and specialty malts imported from Germany.

ohn Duncan and his sons Matt and Callum (fifth and sixth generation brewers) combine the brewing traditions of yesteryear with the newest technology of today to produce our full range of organic beers.

Brewing is essentially a natural process, requiring only 4 ingredients: hops, malt, yeast and water. We brew according to the Bavarian purity law (Reinheitsgebot) which is one of the oldest food regulations in history. Our beer are free from genetic engineering and are vegan (no animal products or by products). We are also certified Kosher.

Currently we make three lagers and two ales as well as seasonal and special brews.
