In January 2015 we opened our new Brewery and Tasting Room at our centrally appointed location of Ohio Street Martinborough. A contemporary establishment with lots of natural light, exposed concrete brick and a natural wood interior. A viewing window through to the Brewery enables you to watch the beer being made while an outside garden bar is perfectly situated to catch the afternoon sun.
Beers are served in a range of specialty glassware shaped to enhance the flavours and aromas inherent in the variety of craft beers on offer.
The Brewery is boutique in size and is aimed at complimenting the vineyards Martinborough is renowned for.
Call in to see the Brewery team, the Tasting Room is open Friday through to Sunday from 11am – 7pm (Monday, Tuesday & Thursday 2pm-7pm) and is On and Off licenced. Sit in the sun and enjoy the choice of 8 taps, tasting paddles, wine, cider and a small food menu designed around sharing plates. Our Brewery tasting paddles are popular with first time visitors, consisting of 4 choices of any of the 8 taps on offer, you get the chance to sample a number of options before deciding on your favourite.
At non peak times, table bookings are welcome and brewery tours can be arranged.
Our 8 taps offer a mix of our core range and seasonal brews and a cider tap. Flagon fills are becoming the choice of craft beer lovers, we offer 1.25L plastic, 1L and 2L glass flagons. Alternatively if you already have your own flagon we are more than happy to fill these. Our core range is also available to purchase in 330ml bottles with 4 pack boxes.

The ethos at Martinborough Brewery is to produce premium hand crafted beer, using natural ingredients, blended together by people who are passionate about their craft, product and region. The brewery is “micro” in size, producing 1200L batches of beer. Production is a labour of love and hands on process, from the grinding of malts to the application of caps and labels. We intend to expand our capacity and product range over time but won’t be compromising on quality.
