Meet The Brewer

Neil the Brewer loves talking about beer and sharing his passion. So whether you want to arrange a full brewery tour (very little walking involved!) or you just want an opportunity to talk beer (while drinking it of course, though not absolutely at the same time!) feel free to drop him a line to see what can be arranged on

We Pride Ourselves On Using NZ Products

We use primarily NZ Malt and Hops to make our beer. The provenance of our beer is important to us and we can assure you of a direct connection to New Zealand farmers from where our Barley and Hops come. We are proud to say that all Coromandel Brewing beer is brewed at our Hahei site so you know exactly where it’s come from.

Hand-Crafted from quality New Zealand Hops

As far as beer is concerned, what we call “hops” are actually just the cone-shaped flowers of the female hops plant, aka Humulus Lupulus. A cousin of cannabis (with none of the THC) hops contain acids and oils that impart bitterness, flavor, and stability to the finished beer.
Spurred by the current Pied Piper of brewing: hops, drinkers are fast becoming used to and acquiring a taste for this Lupulin driven excitement, whether it be a DIPA, IPA or American Pale Ale… to name but a few. So we’re really pleased to be able to predominantly use New Zealand hops which have a global reputation for being some of the most pungent and fruity varieties that can be found anywhere.

Brewed to perfection with quality Malts

Malt is the backbone on which the Hops and yeast shine. It gives us a broad range of flavours from honey, bready, biscuit, toffee, caramel, toasty, to the roasty coffee and chocolates. To make quality beer, you need quality ingredients, and Gladfield Malts are second to none. By maintaining complete control over their grains, malts, and roasting process, they ensure the malt has the flavour, and quality to set us apart.
Gladfield Malt is a local, family owned business based in Dunsandel on the South Island of New Zealand. For more info go to
