Hallertau Brewery has been producing ‘hopping good beer’ at their North West Auckland location since 2005. An on-site bar and restaurant serves the local community and attracts day tripping Aucklanders, mountain bikersand surfers.

Late 2015 saw the installation of a brand new 2500L Brew House and national distribution to meet growing demand. Hallertau’s core range of 6 – 8 beers encompasses international styles from Kolsch, IPAs, Schwarzbier to barrel aged and sour beers. One-offs, seasonals and collaborations regularly appear throughout the year.

Owner Steve Plowman is a home brewing geologist who turned his passion into his profession after undertaking a brewing course at Australia’s Edith Cowan University. Steve’s aim is to make New Zealand beers with their own local brewing style, taking interpretation from the best of international styles and flavours.

“I’m a fanatic not a purist, and simply put, that means I’m all about throwing convention out the window to get the best product,” he said.
