WE'RE CONSTANTLY ENERGISED BY OUR VIBRANT COMMUNITY.

We’ve nicknamed our brewing style ‘village craft’ because we specialise in small batches and create everything at our brewery in the heart of Te Aro. We’re constantly energised by this city – our village that is Wellington – and its vibrant community.

https://i1.wp.com/whistlingsisters.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/39502581_1073452719470278_5000501088382615552_o-Cropped.jpg?fit=640%2C640&ssl=1

Our beers range a spectrum of styles; from easy-drinking crowd favourites, to traditional ‘old world’ recipes, and experimental, new world flavours. Each brew is different, and through our craft, we want to help everyone find something to excite their unique taste and share the experience of delicious craft beer.

We’ve created a ‘lab’ here at Whistling Sisters where we deconstruct all our beers’ flavours to match them with the food that we serve in The Fermentery. Come in for a taste or book a brewery tour!

APA

Fruit-forward and floral with a full hop aroma, our American Pale Ale brings it’s A-game. Hints of grapefruit and citrus play with a welcome bitterness and creamy finish. Pair this APA with food flavours of salt, pepper, sour, or BBQ and this brew delivers a tasty bite.

XPA

Don’t let this one’s light looks fool you, our XPA packs a flavour punch. Fruity notes meet a steady bitterness and a twist of citrus, while our brewers’ hand-picked hops add a floral medley. This beauty’s a perfect pair to any dish. Think sweet and sour, mild or spicy, countered with a sip of chill delight.

LAGER

This delicate lager pours full on flavour. Unfiltered yet crystal clear, we craft this brew with the finest malts and hops from NZ and Czech. Extra-long fermentation creates a superb dry finish that’s a match for bitter and spicy foods, or even baked bread. We know as soon as one’s down, you’ll be ready for another round.

IPA

Hoppy, without dulling your taste buds, we brew our IPA crisp and drinkable. Stone fruit and passionfruit meet tones of citrus and spice, with a balanced malt mouthfeel and a refreshingly bitter-to-smooth finish. Full of aroma and made as a challenge to salt and spice, this IPAI is a pairing for everything nice.

OUR REVOLUTION RANGE

Limited edition brews, available for a short period of time. These are for the adventurists – the classics with our whistling twist. From inventive ingredients to modifications during the brewing process, this range turns old world into a bold new world of flavour experiences.

GINGER RUSH

Our brewing team spent 2 weeks fermenting this beauty & 2 days prepping it and then added further conditioning in the brite tank. We used 45kg of sliced fresh ginger along with 10kg of freshly squeezed lemon plus ground cloves & some other secret ingredients – all resulting in a refreshing clean Ginger Beer without being overly sweet. It’s a full ginger kick that will fill your whole mouth; the fresh ginger ensuring a beautiful warmth at the back of the throat. The use of Champagne yeast has also given this a whole new dimension and finesse.

SPACE KING

Don’t let the bleached mullet or big cat distract you from the real hero – the Galaxy hop. Added into the kettle and dry hopping it showcases the hop characteristics of passionfruit, clean citrus and peach notes. Look for hints of pineapple and tropical fruit along with a careful balance of bitterness. This medium bodied pale ale boasts a big bodied mix of NZ Malt – it loves to party and is definitely one of the hero’s of lockdown.

CLEAN AS A WHISTLE

This is a beautiful clean and delicate lager which is full of flavour using a selection of some of the finest malts and hops. Light and straw in colour, the extra-long fermentation has produced a superb dry finish, leaving you wanting another. No shortcuts here! We have conditioned this splendid brew for 8 weeks – twice as long as other beer styles.

THE CAPED CASCADER

This caped champion always saves the day and definitely helps the weekend by packing a big Cascade hop punch right in the smacker! Powering through the citrus and fruity flavours, leaping over hints of grapefruit and smashing it all into a moderate to bitter American Pale Ale just for you!

FULL OF IT

Here IT is! Our entry into the WCIPA Challenge in Wellington. Created to perfectly mach the Stephen King-esk 13th year theme, Full of IT is a nod to Stephen of course and because this brew is full to the brim with WCIPA flavours & a heap of hops. Mouth filling with a medium to high grapefruit zest and nice bitterness from the Columbus hops. A medium body with a subtle light caramel flavour and finishes with notes of floral, pine and spice/herbs. You will be finishing IT off in no time!

DOUBLE BELGIAN DARK ALE

Brewed with reverence and respect, as all old world beer styles should be – this classic Belgian dark amber ale offers a complex rich malty sweetness aroma which is also reflected in the dubbel flavours. All combining to offer a pronounced richness, complexity and a body full of malty sweetness, yet finishes dry….A good dark habit.

SUFFRAGE CITY

This classic beer style stands out from other contemporaries, namely for not being a straight lager, this is a hybrid brew. Brewed like an ale, but then conditioned like a lager at cold temperatures for up to two months (actually we did for 3 months). This beer (yes, it is a Kolsch) has a grainy pilsner flavour but with less bitterness. A beautiful clean beer light gold in appearance delicate fruit on the nose and a smooth crisp mouthfeel. A perfect summer beer,…. now that it’s finally here.
