The Brewery

When a trio of craft brewers decided to create a few ‘alternatives’ to the range of beers available in New Zealand, they knew their idea had legs. In fact it had bite – A whole lot of bite.

So in 2012, BlackDog Brewery was created in the heart of Wellington, the Craft Beer Capital of New Zealand. Since then the brewers have been doing something a little special, a little different and having some fun along the way.

Our idea is to create interesting ‘alternatives’ to the range of beers already available. Some will work, some won’t, but if we don’t try, we’ll never know. Our mission is to always be interesting and intrepid, always act independent and stay in tune with what the drinkers want. What we are keen to do is build a craft beer brand that we can have some fun with.

And it’s working … working well. They’ve brewed a few beer styles and had them tested around Wellington and they have more than stood up to the challenge. We thought it best to share these brew with the rest of New Zealand – because we know that little dogs have the biggest bark.
