Craftwork is a small brewery from Omaru with the intention is to brew small idiosyncratic batches of Belgian inspired ales, without compromise. Founded in 2014 with a 50 litre Braumeister, they decided to brew themselves, from grinding the malt by hand to bottling the finished product.
They have opted to have a legal brewery in their stone basement. This allows them to consider contract brewing and gives the flexibility to dedicate the space to sour ales, usually too wild for most contract breweries to risk. They have won many awards for their beers, and most recently opening a taproom.
