New Zealand and beer go back a long way. Durable Dutch brown beer helped Abel Tasman and his thirsty crew make the long voyage to the South Pacific. Captain Cook was also known to knock up the odd brew for the boys.
And just like beer has been a part of New Zealand since way back then, it's been a big part of the Zeelandt brewing family too. Head brewer Chris' great great grandfather started a brewery in Hororata back in the day, and now that family tradition lives on at Zeelandt Brewery.
Our beer gives more than a polite nod to that history. We use traditional recipes, and hand craft our brews using Nelson hops and as many local ingredients as we can lay our hands on. There's a little bit of New Zealand in every drop.
