McLeod's is an award-winning, small-batch brewery with an eye on modern takes to traditional styles. Every drop is made then bottled or kegged right here. Our beers are available at select suppliers or on our home taps here at McLeod's Pizza Barn.
Jason Bathgate, our head brewer, has worked for two champion New Zealand breweries and was instrumental in our recent nine-medal win (including four Gold medals) and Trophy for Best International (Longboarder Lager) at the 2017 Brewers' Guild of New Zealand Awards. He's passionate about making good beer whatever the style and has a keen interest in barrel-aged and 'sour' beers. Little surprise that one of his first tasks here was starting a barrel program with assistant brewer Milton Mewett ensuring a diverse range of beers in future.
These are exciting times at the brewery, and we'd love you to be a part of it all! Drop us a line or visit the Email Signup on our Facebook page to get all the latest brew news or hear about our Buyers' Club! If you'd like to read more about brewery life, visit Jason's blog for updates.
