Sawmill is an independent, New Zealand owned brewery run by a small and talented team.
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 appreciate our place. This raw landscape has a bearing on everything we do and people here are resourceful, creative and hardworking.
We drink this beer so it matters to us what is in it. No sugar, preservatives or colour. All our beer is unpasteurised which means a shorter shelf life and more vibrant flavour.
In February 2016 we moved from the original site in Leigh, and we now work from premises just out of Matakana at 1004 Leigh Road in Matakana.
In July 2016 we opened the doors to the Smoko Room, a place in the brewery to visit for generous hospitality, food with gumption, 14 beers on tap and a drinks list that showcases organic wines and the best New Zealand producers. We also offer our full range of beer to takeaway as well as flagon fills. Show Less
