Mata Brewery Taproom

Our family friendly tasting room is a much-loved casual gathering place for Whakatāne locals and visitors alike. With a selection of 12 taps and several packaged options, there is a wide variety of beer and cider to satisfy every taste. Try one of our tasting trays or grab a glass of your favourite. Keen to take some favourites home with you? Choose from a fresh rigger fill or browse our fridge for our selection of cans and bottles.

For those non beer and cider drinkers, wine and a good selection of non-alcoholic and low alcohol drinks are available too.

Mama G’s Kitchen

Mama G’s Kitchen was opened in April 2022 on Mama G’s (aka Gloria’s) birthday! Mama G isn’t a stranger to kitchens, having worked from a very young age helping her parents in their own small bakery and delicatessen businesses. She’s now realised her own dream with Mama G’s kitchen.

Mama G’s offers a delicious range of food options to satisfy your cravings so there’s no need to go hungry while you visit the Tasting Room. Dine in and takeaway are available.
