Monkey Wizard Brewery is located near Motueka in the village of Riwaka, close to the Kahurangi National Park. The area is well known for having excellent water and is ideal for growing both apples and hops. We use both of these in our products and we are especially fond of the New Zealand Saaz cultivars bred locally that have been named after local settlements. One which features in the pilsners is a hop named "Riwaka" and another named "Nelson Sauvin". Our two row malt is also sourced in New Zealand and comes from the fertile plains of Canterbury in the South Island.
