We always try to #drinklocal so when we saw the Hop Federation tap room, we stopped right in! Super friendly team, great beer and complimentary tasting. Definitely stop in to try their brew and get a few to-go too! Cheers!!!

Taste and enjoy the beers
Nov 2019
Hop Federation is a small family brewery. You can taste different beers here for free, such as Red IPA, Pale ale and Lager before you buy. They use local ingredients. Got a nice explanation of the brewery and the different beers from the friendly staff. Unfortunately you cannot visit the brewery itself. You can buy handy cans of beer. Lager was my favorite, a wonderfully refreshing beer. Cheers.

Local microbrewery
Nov 2019 • Solo
Local microbrewery. Product availability depends on the current brew. You can taste de beer (it's free). Only to take away as there no place to sit and drink. Nice variety of beers. We tried the pale ale, IPA, lager and cider. All were good !

Great beers, well worth dropping in

Great little brewery with a great range of tasty beers. The staff are very friendly and helpful. If you like delicious beer it is well worth heading to Hop Federation. You can try all of the beers for free and they have a good selection of beers available for purchase.

Wide choice of beers and lagers
Jan 2019 • Friends
The guy who served us was very clear about the ales and lagers being helpful and nudging us to a purchase decision. All in all a good place to make a local beer from the micro brewery.

What more could you need. Pies, real fruit ice cream and some great beer tasting over the road from this great brewery. These are great beers and great to see the local hops in action.

Fantastic craft beers

What a find this place is. Visited on the way to Takaka, Took away a few riggers then had to call in on the way home for more. The red IPA is a very fine beer indeed, although all were very good.

Decent craft beers

Helpful staff and free tasting. The Motueka Rakau hops IPA was very good indeed, as was the red IPA. Didn't try the others. Asked about wheat beer (my favourite), but they don't brew that type.

What a find!! Great Beer, very friendly staff
Jan 2018 • Family
Stumbled upon this whilst the rest of the family were eating very nice ice-cream across the road, even though I turned up at what was closing time the guy was very welcoming and was insistent I tried the beers before buying. All were very good. I bought a 4 pack of different ones and a few more loose bottles. I drank them all that evening and they were all excellent - from memory I think the red IPA was my favourite. Can only say its a good job I don't like next door to this place as my diet would be beer and ice-cream.

Hahahaha Thanks Dave. What a lovely review. Thank you for taking the time to write this. Our little Riwaka hub has something for everyone in the summer (Ice cream/Coffee/Food/Beer/Fruit) so I am delighted that you ‘stumbled’ upon us and enjoyed the beers you tasted.
