Established in 2002 by Kieran McCauley and Belinda Gould, the Brew Moon Brewing Company is a family-owned brewery and taproom in Amberley, North Canterbury.  We are North Canterbury's original craft brewery, producing an established range of high quality, popular beer styles alongside a selection of more exotic seasonal brews. Belinda and Kieran have recently been joined in the brewery by their two sons, Toby and Oscar — so the Brew Moon remains a true family business.

The brewery

All Brew Moon beer is brewed on an 1800 litre brew kit in Amberley, New Zealand. Because we both brew and can our beer on-site, we take responsibility for every aspect of production, from grain to glass.

Small batch sizes also allow us to regularly experiment with exciting new seasonal brews alongside our usual suspects. Swing by our taproom and brewery in Amberley to experience the full range.

Why can?

We sell our beer in the snazzy little cans you see here because it is better for the beer, and better for the environment.

Cans allow our beers to be protected from factors such as light-strike and oxidation, meaning they stay fresher for longer.  

Cans also produce around 20% less greenhouse gases during transportation than bottles, and are made of a far higher percentage of recycled materials.

Better beer + better environment = better world.

Seasonals at the taproom

Altocumulus Hazy IPA

An East-coast style IPA packed with Amarillo, Galaxy and Mosaic hops. Deliciously cloudy and  unfiltered with punchy, fruity hop flavours.

Olé Molé Spicy Ale

A style-bending Ale inspired by the Mexican dish Molé. This brew uses cocao nibs, cinnamon, coffee, cumin, coriander and various chilli's atop a malty base to achieve a warming, spicy beer with a lot of complexity. 

Trans-Pacific Pale Ale

A Trans-Pacific Partnership we can all support. Centennial hops from the US, Galaxy Hops from Australia and Taiheke hops from NZ combine to produce a clean fruity Pale Ale with strong aromatics and a punchy finish. 

Audrey Mosaic APA

An American Pale Ale hopped exclusively with fruity Mosaic hops. The malt base is light, highlighting  all of the peachy, citrussy, tropical hop characters you associate with Mosaic.

Brown Bear Brown Ale

Brewed in the traditional English style, this smooth beer is toasty, roasty and deliciously malty. A timeless beer style suited to those looking for a maltier ale but not quite as dark and robust as a Stout or Porter.

El Citrico APA

A clean, crisp American Pale Ale predominately hopped with our beloved Amarillo. Big citrus hop flavour and aroma on a reasonably light, dry malt base.
