Sawmill is an independent, New Zealand owned brewery run by a small and talented team. The Brewery was established in 2004 on the site of what was once a local timber mill established in the 1860’s. Our brewing is underpinned by this heritage of craftsmanship and tenacity.

Brewery

We are straight up in our brewing.

We want our beer to taste clean and to honour the ingredients. We are in to making styles that have been around for a long time and seeing how they turn out in our hands, and in our brewery. These beers have a heritage and yet making them up north will always give them an edge.

We drink this beer so it matters to us what is in it. No sugar, preservatives or colour. All our beer is unpasteurized which means a shorter shelf life and more vibrant flavour.

This is beer with roots.
