After brewing on and off for 7 years in Australia at Hunter Beer Co., co-owner and head-brewer, Jess Wolfgang, finally has her own brewery to play in! Hailing from Oamaru, the other half co-owner and her partner, both in business and in life, Simon Ross, invented a small-batch bottling machine.


This 'Beer Dream Team' started planning their own brewery years ago but officially opened the doors in June 2017. After debating on towns to settle down in, this kiwi/Aussie duo landed on Wanaka, Otago as the location for their brewery and bar.

Wanaka always had the snowy mountains, stunning lake, great town center, and outdoor activities galore, but now has the most breweries per capita in New Zealand. We could not be more thrilled to have joined the party with other talented and creative local brewers.
