A little about us
Stephen Plowman was so passionate about home brewing that he turned his beloved hobby into a full time occupation. That was eight years ago, and since then Stephen and his team have been busy producing ‘hopping good’ craft beer by taking traditional recipes and giving them a good twist.
Everything is brewed on site at The Hallertau Brewbar and Restaurant in Riverhead, where visitors flock from all over to enjoy a cold one with some choice Kiwi tucker.
Oh and heads up - if you can hear the chickens hiccuping, it’s because they can't get enough of the leftover grain from the brewing process!
Products and specialities
Hallertau beer is made using only yeast, rainwater, fistfuls of hops and a sprinkling of brewer's magic. Likewise you won’t find any packet-mix nonsense in the restaurant kitchen, it’s all about fresh flavour filled tucker.

For those lazy summer days, you can’t go wrong with a trip out to Hallertau. Huge plates of ribs, massive pots of mussels, and their beer tasting rack is awesome (although the Number 1 is the best). It’s newly renovated too, so it feels like you’re drinking directly under the brewing vats. Check it out!
