Fly by chopper to The Sawmill Brewery in Matakana for a Craft Beer Tasting and Shared Lunch Platter.
Sawmill is an independent, New Zealand owned brewery run by a small and talented team. The Brewery was established in 2004 on the site of what was once a local timber mill established in the 1860’s. The brewing is underpinned by this heritage of craftsmanship and tenacity. This raw landscape has a bearing on everything they do and people here are resourceful, creative and hardworking. Having moved from the original site in Leigh, the Sawmill Brewery has been turning out beer from its new premises just out of Matakana since February 2016. And more recently opened their doors to visitors and locals to experience the kind of hospitality Sawmill is about – straightforward and generous. In the Smoko Room, you can expect food with gumption, a selection of beer made on site and a drinks list that shows the best of NZ producers.
