Project Description

Want to drink award-winning beer?
We’ve got that on tap.

Small-batch, hand-crafted ales & lagers brewed in the heart of Nelson on Baker Street

Our multi-award winning brewmaster and co-owner, Mike Kelly, believes in making beer that adheres to traditional styles, ingredients and principles. High quality and consistency are hallmarks of his 20+ year career in commercial brewing. Our beers are always changing as we rotate offerings representing the world over, including lesser-known and forgotten beer styles.

If that’s not your thing, we also keep a consistent core of more recognizable styles — all brewed with Mike’s attention to detail.
