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://i0.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!

OUR BEER

OUR SISTER RANGE

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.

RIVETER LAGER

Reward yourself after a hard day’s work with our riveter lager. Great things take time. From the selection of the finest malts and hops, through to the traditional brewing process of bottom fermentation, then maturation in tank for an extra six to eight weeks. This authentic lager is perfectly crisp. Unfiltered yet crystal clear, a thick foamy head on top with a hint of citrus hop and an extra dry finish.

METALSMITH APA

Our Metalsmith forges to the heart of balance between hop and malt. Fruit-forward and floral with a full hop aroma, our unfiltered American Pale Ale brings its a-game. A true craftsmanship of zesty grapefruit and citrus play with a welcome balance of bitterness and a creamy finish. This well-rounded APA will definitely leave you wanting another.

WELDER IPA

Our Welder turns up pressure on the hops by fusing three classic American hop varieties – Centennial, Simcoe and Chinook. This produces a full flavoured IPA with aromas and flavours of stone fruit, citrus and pine. WIth a subtle malt profile and a refreshingly smooth bitter finish, you can’t beat this classic.

STOKER HAZY IPA

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.

POTION RANGE

A liquid that is believed to have a magical effect on someone who drinks it.

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.

LIMITED RELEASE RANGE

Limited edition brews, available for a short period of time. A range for the adventurists through to the classics – we pay homage to the classic traditional styles from around the world and we also brew classics with our whistling twist, using inventive ingredients to modifications during the brewing process.

PACIFIC PALE ALE

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.
