Wellington New Zealand Breweries


Parrot Dog was started by two guys named Matt who were just into really good beer. The duo became inspired to try and make beer that tasted good. So it goes; they got to homebrewing out of the basement of their Aro Valley flat. Joining forces they developed thri first commercial ParrotDog recipe. Adding another Matt into the mix, they've grown and their brewery was born in the heart of Wellington City.

Garage Project

Garage because it started in a garage, but it’s more than that. It’s also about approaching things with a garage mentality. It’s about playing around, making do and thinking outside the box. The surroundings might be basic but this is no barrier to creativity. This is bière de garage – beer from the garage

Tuatara - The Third Eye

Brewing started with a guy named Carl Vasta in the hills above Waikanae. Using converted dairy tanks he began supplying friends, family and good mate Sean Murrie, who ran beer specialty bar The Malthouse and was on the hunt for good local product. The two decided to go into business together and the rest, as they say, is history. These days, with a big local investor behind them, a big new plant in Paraparaumu, and plans to quadruple their output volume over the next few years, Tuatara is at the top of their game.
