“Just stopped by today and loved the beer range! Best kolsch beer in NZ and their Matawhaka is a must try on their tasting paddles! Very cheap food menu, recommend stopping when passing through Whakatane



West End Lager

West End Lager is a perfect beer to enjoy after a surf or chill out day on the beach.  This Lager was brewed to celebrate 15 years of brewing in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, and as a homage to our local Ohope Beach.


Berry Sundae

Berry Sundae is laden with buckets of delicious locally grown hand-picked mixed berries.  We’ve added milk sugar for an ice cream and tart berry coulis sensation.  Pours a gorgeous purple/red with a pink head.



Mataccino is a decadent mocha style milk stout infused with freshly roasted coffee, lashings of cacao and vanilla beans scraped from fresh vanilla pods.




R18 West Coast Double IPA

R18 is a straight no nonsence Double IPA.  Hoppiness to fill your nostrils, bitterness that hits you, and a big boozy finish!



SpellBound Hazy IPA

Our Fairy Hopmother waves her magic wand as she enchants you with this hazy IPA.

A charming dose of American hops Sabro, Citra and Mosaic may leave you feeling Spellbound



Manuka Golden Ale 

A smooth clean tasting golden ale edged with a hint of nz’s native manuka honey.

The addition of aromatic manuka honey gives this beer distinctive herbal notes

First commercial manuka honey beer in NZ
