200 ml tasting glass, $5- $6 . The beer is refermented in the keg and not force carbonated. Belgian beers can often pour with a large head, and tight foam.

Welcome to our Barrel & Tasting Room .
Our normal hours are Thursday to Sunday, 2-6 pm. You may wish to book privately as a group, just ask. We are not a bar, but two very busy brewers. Sorry, no toilets on site. The normal rules apply about good behavior and moderation. We are happy to be able to sell directly to the public. Thank You !
We began in 2015 with a 50 litre capacity. Now a double brew day at home yields 200 litres, still ridiculously small and uneconomic. Our friends, Jess and Simon at Rhyme and Reason Brewery in Wanaka, allowed us to purchase a 1200 l. fermenter and warm room , so, much of our “clean” beer we brew there
about every six weeks. This allows us to concentrate on our barrel aged sour beers, in our ‘home brewery’ in Lee-Ann’s stone basement and here in Harbour St. All our beers are refermented in the bottle or keg, on live yeast. We have a wide variety of styles, albeit Belgian in influence, simply because we love Belgium, its quirky culture, beers and cuisine. Enjoy your visit, Sante! Proost!
BARREL-AGED SOUR $18- $20
Red Bonnet Original 6%
Red Bonnet Sour Cherry 6.5 %
Barrique Saison Honey & Medlar 8%
