About West Coast Brewery

The beauty of the South Island of New Zealand is world renowned, and it’s on the West Coast of the South Island that we are lucky enough to call home. Westport, to be precise. A town once upon a time built on a boom in mining, Westport is forging a new reputation for itself as a destination lifestyle town.
"Our focus is on producing high quality all natural craft beer, cider, and ginger beer for you to enjoy any time"

Whilst the current West Coast Brewery has been operating since the 1990's, our site first operated as a brewery in the 1950's, then known as 'The Miners Brewery'.

Westport is an understated place of hidden beauty, a paradise of native flora and fauna, hills, coastline, and history. It's a no fuss, easy going place to call home. True to that local vibe, West Coast Brewery creates a range of all natural, high quality products.

Our beer is brewed naturally, over a longer period of time, allowing the flavours and body of the beer to develop fully.

For cider lovers, the recent addition of the Kunekune Cider range is bound to appeal. And for those keen to re-live their childhoods, West Coast Ginger Beer will bring memories flooding back.

West Coast Brewery is run by a small team of staffers, and our directors, with the valued input of our shareholders.

We welcome all enquiries, and would love to hear from you. Click on Contact Us above, to get in touch.
