The  Sawmill Brewery produces award-winning craft beers from a bespoke barn-style brewery just outside Matakana. The adjoining Smoko Room is much loved for its innovative menu and wholesome flavours. Try a tasting flight or fill up a flagon to take home. 

Barrel-aged sour beers are a house speciality at the 8-Wired Barrelhouse and Tap Room in Matakana Village. With 21 beers on tap, you can choose from the latest creations, or find old favourites from the barrel-aged collection.

For specialty spirits with surprising flavours, visit the award-winning Puhoi Organic Distillery with a tasting list that may include macadamia rum, ginseng whisky infused with manuka honey, raspberry negroni and blue alchemy gin. The distillery opens only by appointment so phone ahead for a tasting unlike any other. 

Fresh ideas, honest ingredients and full flavours. These are the craft beers and spirits of the Matakana Coast.
