Tap Room & Barrel Ageing Facility

Barrelworks & Tap Room

The home of 8 Wired Brewing in Matakana. Barrelworks is our barrel ageing facility and tap room. We have a wide range of beers on tap along with a varied food offering from our food truck mates.

“We want people to feel that they are part of the brewing process,” he says. “The tasting tap room is set among our barrels and people will see some of the blending and bottling.”

To keep the food as interesting as the beer, Barrelworks will host at least one food truck at any time, rotating them every few weeks, the popular moveable feast food truck fiesta will also be held on the premises each Sunday over summer too.

“The idea is it will be a place where people can try lots of different beers and all kinds of food as well,” Monique says. The tap room is home to 21 different tipples to taste including two guest taps, which will start with Bohemian Cider.
