Matakana Food & Beer Festival Beer

Whether you're into Ales, Lagers, Stouts or Pilsners - our hand-picked smorgasbord of local and domestic brewers have got something just for you.

Sawmill Brewery

Be independent, be real, be resourceful. This is Sawmill. We are a New Zealand owned brewery run by a small and creative team. We brew clean, flavoursome and balanced beer with a Sawmill edge - the willingness to think for ourselves.


Citizen we rescue & re-work edible food going to waste in a high quality, low impact way. We've tacked NZ's most wasted BREAD. We've developed a circular solution as we brew craft beer, then repurpose our mash back to bread. So BREAD into BEER into BREAD.

Behemoth Brewing Co.

Founded in 2013 Behemoth Brewing Company was born out of winning a homebrew competition (Wellington In A Pint) and a passion for great beer. Over tasting trays of the Tuatara range back at the original Malthouse in Wellington, ideas brewed but it wasn’t until a move to Auckland that these ideas started to become beer.

Liberty Brewing Co.

Liberty is the bold, bad ladyboy of New Zealand brewing, unrestrained and unapologetic since our founding in 2009.The enjoyment of muscular style- driven beer that focuses on goodness not gimmicks is the hill we’ve elected to die on. The brainchild of Joseph and Christina Wood, Liberty has grown from a garage in New Plymouth to it's current home in Helensville, Auckland.

McLeod's Brewery

If ever a brewery was born to endorse the world’s first kilt-required surfing competition, McLeod's Brewery is it. Of course, it hasn’t been all rainbows and longboards. It took us a while to get here.We spent childhood summers burning our feet on the sand and riding waves in Waipu Cove. This slice of delicious Pacific paradise was home-away-from-home when we were wee ones, so when it came time to kick corporate life to the kerb, we knew where to go.


From Parrotdog's shiny brewery in Lyall Bay, Wellington, New Zealand, they're continuing to do what they started back in 2011: making approachable, award winning beer. Their range is a diverse cast of characters, with something to suit every one of you, and everyone of us.

Good George Brewing

If we told you that Good George was the best thing to come out of Hamilton, you'd probably think for a minute then make a joke about how we dont have much competition. Thats okay, we can handle it, we dont take life too seriously. We're serious about brewing though.

Garage Project

Garage Project is a small but growing brewery, located in an old petrol station in Wellington. We like pushing boundaries, reinterpreting styles and challenging the notions of what beer can be. We're here to try something new. Just like you.

Duncan's Brewing

Owned and operated by George Duncan and Wai Familton, Duncan’s is the result of a 22,000 km road trip circumnavigating the USA, where they drank their way through a multitude of sessionable and sometimes questionable beer offerings. Clearly, a beer obsession was born.

8 Wired Brewing
