The Twisted Hop Real Ale Brewery

Phone (03) 962 3688

At The Twisted Hop Brewery we proudly specialise in brewing English style cask conditioned real ales in addition to favorite kegged beers like our hoppy Sauvin Pilsner, Sessionable 2.5% Ha’Penny and rotating seasonal brews.

With over a decade of brewing in Christchurch, we’ve loved watching the craft beer industry change and grow. Since our birth on Poplar Lane in the CBD even we have grown from a brewpub to our current Wigram location with larger batch capacity, contract brewing opportunities, and nationwide distribution.

All of our beers showcase Canterbury malts and New Zealand hops; but what is really special about our brewery is that we always have true Cask Conditioned Real Ales on offer.

Our range of beers can be found in The Twisted Hop Pub (Ferry Rd, Christchurch) and The Laboratory (Lincoln) whilst our beers are often available on tap at a number of bars around New Zealand (listed below).  What makes The Twisted Hop Brewery special is that we brew cask conditioned beers, those made in the traditional English way, finishing off the fermentation in the barrel that the beer is served from.

If you are a bar owner looking for a new beer to add to your range on tap, please give us a call.  We sell our beer in kegs of various sizes, we can sell you casks of real ale (if you have the means to store and serve it), or we can transfer it into a plastic bag for dispensing through a handpump.  

If you are a contract brewer looking for a new location to brew your product, please do consider us.  Drop us an email and we'd be happy to send you our terms and conditions.
