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 only 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

Amarillo Slim APA

An American Pale Ale liberally hopped with one of our favourite US hops; Amarillo. There are stone fruit aromatics, and the palate is dominated by roasted peaches and a clean bitterness. Just enough malt body balances the beer but this is definitely one for the hopheads.

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. 

Black Gold: Truffle-infused Golden Ale

The largest truffle ever found in NZ was dug up just down the road from the brewery, by our friends at Kings Truffles. It was decided that a beer would be a great home for such a truffle, so we whipped up a Golden Ale to suit. Earthy, smokey, delicious and only available for a limited time.

Calypso APA

Our first experiment with US hop Calypso! A really interesting and complex hop with aromatics dominated by fruit and an earthy, almost tea-like character. The palate is more typical of US hop varieties with stone fruit and citrus shining through.

US101 Imperial IPA

The long awaited return of our US101 Imperial IPA. Inspired by the monstrous IPA's found up Highway 101 in the USA, this brew is packed full of fruity, intense hops atop a rich, alcoholic base. 10.1% ABV. and 101 IBU's. 

Muscles from Brussels Belgian Ale

Belgian ales are fairly alcoholic with a sweet finish and a uniquely funky yeast character. Strong, sweet and warming, the Muscles from Brussels celebrates this tradition and tips its hat to the great Belgian himself- Jean Claude Van Damme!
