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 unpasteurized which means a shorter shelf life and more vibrant flavour.
Having moved from the original site in Leigh, we know work from premises just out of Matakana. In July 2016 we opened the doors to the Smoko Room, a place in the brewery for conversation, community, food and drink. Come visit. Show Less
