Barrelworks & Tap Room

Barrelworks is our barrel ageing facility and tap room based in the farmers market town of Matakana, just 10 minutes drive from our production brewery in Warkworth.  We have 21 taps pouring our latest creations along with rarities from our barrel aged collection.  

 At weekends you will find Food Trucks parked up in our car park (or inside during winter) bringing you a vibrant and ever changing food offering, which we like to pair up with whatever seasonal beers we happen to have on tap at the time.   We have an outdoor seating area which gets the sun long into the evening during our long summers and great spot for a post beach beer. 

 Tasting flights are a great way to enjoy a range of beers during your visit, these are made up with 5 x 100ml glasses which you can customise yourself or get one of our bar staff to recommend a selection suited to your tastes. We also have a full takeaway license so you can take your favourite brews home with you either by filling straight from tap or choosing from our bottled & can selection.  


 We happily accept bookings so please get in contact via email to book in your group.
