Covid lockdown 2021

Alert Level 2: We look forward to welcoming customers back into the taproom under updated level 2 guidleines, i.e physical distancing, mask use and venue check-ins. Hours return to normal. We recommend bookings.

Alert Level 1: TBC

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. Alongside our beers we pour a small selection of local wines, and provide a range of wood-fired pizzas and small plates.

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.

The Family

The Brew Moon is 100% owned and operated by Belinda, and her two sons Toby and Oscar. We are supported by a small team of passionate locals to whom we probably owe most of our success.

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

Bright Cider Life: Apple Cider

A bright, fruity cider made with Braeburn and Royal Gala apples. Very cloudy with some residual sweetness.

After the rain APA

A seasonal APA brewed the day after Canterbury’s record-breaking storm. Hopped with Nectaron and Sabro, its incredibly aromatic with notes of pineapple and coconut; and a fresh, fruity and clean palate.

Waipara (Tekau ma wha/ 14) New england ipa

Our New England IPA with a rotating hop recipe. This iteration is hopped with Nectaron and Citra, providing delicious notes of citrus, passionfruit and pineapple.

Sour Face Feijoa Gose

Gose is a tart, lightly salted style of beer originating in Goslar, Germany. We've taken this traditional style added feijoa puree for that distinctive feijoa flavour and aroma, and a nice hit of acidity.

Brown Bear Brown Ale

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

Land of the Long, White Cloudy Hazy Pale

The little brother to our 'Waipara' series; this is a sessionable, slightly drier hazy Pale Ale hopped with Nectaron and Riwaka. The same haze and delcious hop character, but at a more sessionable alcohol level.
