TUATARA BREWING CO.
Tuatara Brewing Co., on Wellington's Kapiti Coast, promise to “create memorable and uniquely Aotearoa beer experiences”. Top sellers, Tuatara’s Pilsner, Helles Lager and Aotearoa Pale Ale, are great examples of the Kiwi beer revolution. “We started out making traditional styles, the German lagers, Czech pilsners but made locally, so people were getting them fresh rather than stale imported beers,” explains Tuatara founder Carl Vasta. This No.8 wire mentality has seen their beers evolve from Kiwi twists on traditional styles to almost unique takes in their own right.
