Ground Up Brewing

Ground Up Brewing Wanaka

Beer for the bold, the audacious & the gutsy

Our belief that authenticity creates a superior beer is heavily rooted in our workplace culture. We have always done things from the Ground Up, and believe that there is no match for the passion and enthusiasm which is spawned when you create something from nothing.

Always move forward, don’t look back. We ask you to take the route less travelled, turn away from the monotony of daily life, open your mind and delve deeper into the world of great beer. We try not to categorize ourselves as ‘craft beer’, we just make beer, and hopefully you enjoy it. We certainly do.

Consistently excellent service and good beer.
Brilliant. Great selection of beers. You're bound to find something you like. Wish the tasting paddle had more than 3 beers in it or not as expensive. I ordered the nachos and they were huge. Excellent value and delicious. Keep in mind kitchen is open from 16:00.

Excellent range of beer averaging $12 per pour. Don't get a bag of crisps though. $6 a bag! Only worked it out after I paid!
