Kia Ora!

Thanks for choosing beer from our genuine real ale brewery, nestled amidst the leafy green heart of the nations hop growing region in Motueka. Martin Townshend founded the brewery in 2005 with immediate access to Nelson hops as well as a beautiful supply of water, drawn up from the Motueka aquifer to brew with.  These two ingredients combined malt barley, yeast and a large dose of passion for brewing using traditional methods have seen the brewery jump to prominence, winning awards and accolades from the NZ Brewing industry, including being Championed NZ Brewery & Manufacturer of the Year in 2014!

Our philosophy is simple; Get the best ingredients, treat them with respect and you'll produce a great product. Martin personally brews all Townshend beer and is a strong advocate of natural brewing processes, “We brew the way people have done for centuries, and our brews have the depth of flavour that comes from small batch fermentation.”

We hope you enjoy this beer as much as we enjoyed making it, Cheers!
