The little brewery that cans
We’re a small crew of wacky beatles brewing, packaging and distributing our awesome range of beers across New Zealand, whilst pouring on-site, throwing kick-ass live events and collaborating with our pals around town - all under one roof.
Wānaka brewed craft beers
Our 12 beer taps offer all the classics like our Joy Rider Pale Ale, Black Lips Porter, Happy Pils Pilsner and Mt Alpha West Coast IPA, but we love to mix it up with guest taps, collaborations, experiments and more canned offerings in the fridge too.
Fresh hops, habanero saisons, coffee IPAs, fruity sours, rice lagers… When it comes to craft beers, there’s not much we won’t try!
We also offer a local wine list, NZ ciders, a few snacky snacks and some stylin’ merchandise.
We’re all about ‘adventure-ready deliciousness’. Our beers are available for purchase in riggers and cans. Stop by the brewery and fill up a rigger or container for takeaway beverages and enjoy our local Wānaka beer wherever you want to drink it. We also offer sick merchandise, souvenirs and gifts for the craft beer lover in your life.
Daily happy hour
Good vibes love a discount! Come see us between 4:00pm – 6:00pm every day for 'Hoppy Hour' - $1 off pints, selected wines and ciders.
Good beer, great vibes
When Rhyme x Reason rolled up its big doors for the first time on an industrial street in Wānaka in June 2017, we were the first brew pub in town. We may be one of a few now, but we’re definitely one-of-a-kind!
