We were born during the infancy of the NZ craft brewer revolution when brewers sculpted a unique identity that is rich in kiwi spirit and adventure. Fired on by this brewer breakaway, 8 Wired has always stood for innovation and ingenuity.

in 2011 we received the highest brewing honour awarded in New Zealand as we were crowned champion brewery at the brewers guild awards.

Our brewing style is mainly focused on what i would call "new world interpretations of old-world styles".

Currently, we have about two hundred (225 litre) barrels full of beer and have recently acquired 7 "Foedres" in what we believe is the biggest barrel ageing programme in the Southern Hemisphere.

Inspired by the Kiwi can-do mentality​ to challenge the masses that beer is no longer “just beer” ​​Expect unique brews​ and ingenuity in flavour. - Søren
