“In 1980 there were only 3 Craft Breweries in New Zealand. In 2011 there were over 50, trending much #craftbeer!”
McCashin's Brewery is housed in the historic Rochdale Cider Building in Nelson and is the largest independently owned (and family owned) brewery in New Zealand. Started in 1981 by Terry McCashin, this award winning microbrewery revolutionised the way beer was produced in New Zealand.
Since then they have continued to make outstanding beer whilst adding a few more products to their range including Frute, Rochdale Cider, Stoke Ginger Beer and 26000 Vodka.
