Crafty TROUT Brewery


Explore and discover craft beer and cider using Alpine Volcanic water. Tours of the first fully automated brewing system in the world. A perfect indoor activity away from the weather.

Mineral waters formed through volcanic fire and glacial ice are brewed with New Zealand's finest hops, malts and yeast. Tours operate daily at 11am and 1pm, except Tuesdays (closed). Duration 1 - 1.5 hours depending on how interactive you want to be with the brewmaster. Our on-site Brewery includes Brewery Tours, Taupo's only trout giftware shop, liquor outlet and Bier Kafe. The Bier Kafe is an Austrian Alpine styled bar/cafe serving our own 7 crafted beer/cider on tap along with a beer matched menu - famous for freshly baked pretzels and gourmet wood fired pizzas; locally roasted coffee and homemade chocolates and other treats.
