Welcome to Invercargill Brewery 

It was 1999 when I established Invercargill Brewery in an Invercargill garage, and set about applying new world flavours like Nelson Hops, Gladfield Malt and Central Otago apples to old-world beer styles.

The result has been an award winning range of authentic Southern Brews that includes seasonal specials that have gained international accolades.

Beer with me – for quality you’ll never forget.
