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.

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!



Our core brews that are always available in both cans and kegs. A selection of easy-drinking beers to suit everyone’s tastes. We brew our Whistling range to be balanced and clean – that means packed with flavour to enjoy on their own, and the perfect mate to pair with food.


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.


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.


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.


Wrap yourself in a velvet blanket of malt with layers of oat, toffee and biscuit. Made with nine malt varieties from the South Island and a heavy hand of Dunedin's Harraway oats. This stout is a match for any treat - sweet or savoury.


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 IPA is a pairing for everything nice.


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.


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.


Packed with a mix of NZ Malt resulting in a beautiful medium bodied hazy ale. This beer heroes the Galaxy Hop (2020) packed with clean citrus and passionfruit characters all enhanced by being added as late additions in both the kettle and fermenter. This is a mouth full of flavours derived from the Galaxy Hop that has the distinction of sporting the highest percentage of essential oils in the industry.

A dry, crisp, golden-coloured beer showcasing the characteristic citrus, floral and wine-like notes of Aotearoa grown hops. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and smooth palate, with a clean bitter finish and a strong white head. A neutral malt base and cool fermentation provide the backbone for this super refreshing beer that champions some of our finest hops.


Our Stoker keeps the fire burning! A dedicated worker and team player, its fuel to the flame is a bespoke blend of Aotearoa grown malts and American hops. First the hops are whirlpooled to catch the essence of their flavour, then dry-hopped twice to lock in the aromas. This delivers a full-bodied blaze that overflows with big juicy citrus flavours and tropical undertones, blending together to ignite a golden pour, topped with a cloudy head. Like any hard day’s work, it finishes off with a hint of bitterness and a cool lingering sweetness.

Strawberry Sour

Pucker up! For the ultimate thirst quencher jam packed with locally grown fresh and juicy as strawberries!

The ideal combination of tart and sweet, our kettle sour is medium bodied with a crispy, clean finish and pretty pink hue. So when the sun is out and you're feeling a little fruity, go ahead and tickle your taste buds with our limited release strawberry sour!
