Our Beer

We have a few beers in our core range that we make over and over again because people keep telling us they are awesome. Then we also like to be a bit more creative.

You may have tasted our Berry Brownie, which is full of raspberries, there was also Thai de Laksa which was basically a laksa in a beer and there's also the story about the Van Tsar vanilla ice cream float we did once.

If you want some of our beer on at your bar or venue just email us at info [at] baylandsbrewery.co.nz.
