German settlers arrived in Upper Moutere in 1843 and after a rough start, settled Upper Moutere, then called Sarau, in 1850.  Cordt Bennseman also started building the Moutere Inn in 1850 as a resting place between Richmond and Motueka - in the heart of the new hop growing area.

The Moutere Brewing Company has been established by the current owners of the Inn to offer brews that the early settlers in the area would have missed.  We hope you also enjoy them. 

1516 PILSNER is our take on the classic Pilsner style.  Sharp refreshing hop flavours and a full malty background.

SARAU LAGER is brewed in the Munich Helles style. Sarau Lager offers malty flavours with a refreshing and gentle hop finish.  Silver Medal Winner, A&P Show Beer Awards 2012.

NEUDORF ALE is an Altbier and is similar in style to an NZ draft or ale. It's malt driven, copper brown and has a low hop profile.   Bronze Medal Winner, NZ Beer Awards 2011.
