Hop Federation Brewery

  • Riwaka
  • Beer & Craft Breweries

Located in the village of Riwaka, our brewery is in the heart of hop region and on the way to some of the best recreation in the Top of the South. We’re on the main road to Golden Bay, the Abel Tasman National Park and Kaiteriteri’s popular beaches and mountain bike park, and just a short detour from the Great Taste Cycle Trail.

Our dedication to producing seriously delicious ales starts with the way our hops are farmed and it all happens right down the road. It's quite literally our own team with their hands in the soil, meaning there's a straight line from hop to glass.

As part of Kono, we share a promise of love for the land and respect for the sea. We are guided by values of kaitiakitanga, or sustainability, and our passion for hop farming is matched only by our dedication for the brewer's art.

We’d love to help you appreciate the subtleties and complexities of our beers by sampling them. We offer in store tastings of everything in our range, (this may include a special one off brew or a limited seasonal beer) and we enjoy chatting with you about them and hearing your feedback. We also offer a range of Tohu and Kono wines and Tutū Cider!

So make us your destination, or drop in next time you’re passing through.
