ABOUT CRAFTWORK BREWERY

Craftwork specialises in Belgian-style ales, making most styles - Farmhouse ales and Saisons, Trappist and Abbey ales, Spontaneously fermented and Barrel-aged ‘sour’ beers. All of our beer ferments warm, and is bottle or keg conditioned; sugar and yeast added at bottling for secondary refermentation. This gives a more ‘natural’ carbonation and extends the flavour and shelf life. The nano-brewery batches are all done by hand in Oamaru, whilst the micro-brewery batches are brewed by us, at Rhyme and Reason Brewery in Wanaka.

BEERS

All our diverse Belgian style ales are bottle or keg conditioned. Whether in nano batch size or micro, the fast beers take at least two months, while some may age for three or more years. Broadly, we make Farmhouse ales, Abbey and barrel aged sours, including spontaneously fermented coolship styles.
