Tuatara Brewing
To say that Tuatara Brewery has taken off in the last few years is an understatement. Heck, we've been propelled into orbit. The local demand for good beer is insatiable, and with volumes running at about a million litres a year we've become one of the leading lights in the craft industry. It probably helps that we're based in Wellington where beer appreciation is not so much a cult as a full-blown religion. (The legendary Malthouse in Courtenay Place functions as the high altar.) Today you'll find Tuatara all over the country, even in the local supermarket, as well as at selected spots around the world.

At the Tuatara HQ we also offer the - TASTING EXPERIENCE

The tasting experience a unique & fun exploration into the following:
~History of craft beer
~Close up look at the raw ingredients used
~Deep dive into the various beer styles
~Comprehensive introduction to the brewing process
~Sampling a selection of Tuatara brews with tasting tips from your all-knowing Zen beer master with delicious canapes to match.
~A quiz to finish to test your knowledge.
Only 20 fortunate individuals can do the tasting experience at one time. The tasting experience takes 45 minutes and you must be 18+ years of age.

We offer the tasting experience at the brewery in Paraparaumu on Saturdays at 1.15pm.

The cost per person is $35.
