This brewery is hidden and not well signposted and well known to the locals. It is within close walking distance to the top 10 campsite.
Three different tasting flights of tap beers were fun and gave variety. Simple pizzas and an antipasto platter available for meals. Always busy. Indoor and outdoor seating. Very ordinary decor and rustic outdoors, not flash but serves the purpose.

Staff were really nice, i got a tasting board which was quite good considering I'm not a fan of most beer. Also got a pizza, was a bit disappointed they had run out of one of the toppings but it was still good, one of the best gluten free bases i have had

Well worth a visit for the fantastic beer. The taproom is pleasant enough, sitting on the front of the industrial-style brewery building. Blackboard of seasonal beers, indoor and covered outdoor seating. Plenty of local patrons, which is a good sign. Just a block away from the superb Waikanae beach.

I popped into the brewery and taproom before leaving Gisborne to come home on a hot sunny Gisborne day. There is a good selection of food available on site as well as a big board with all the beers available for tasting. The tasting board, with 6 glasses is great value, for $20. I decide to bring a couple of flagons of Gisborne Red back home with me for happy memories!
