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.

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 WHISTLING 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 on their own, and the perfect mate to pair with food.

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.

STOUT

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.

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 IPA 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.

WELCOME BACK MAAAATE!

To celebrate the arrival of our Aussie mates we’ve brewed this beautiful hazy which combines citrus and tropical flavours intensified through our new dry hopping technique. This malt blend is light in colour, produces a creamy head and lingers with a herb and spice flavour right at the end.

This is the perfect brew to share with your Aussie mate you haven’t seen for ages or cheers those who you are still apart from.

ON THE PISTE!

Pouring a beautiful gold-orange hue with a creamy white head, our most recent hazy blends classic IPA hop Simcoe with hazy heavy weights Mosaic and Nectaron to give an avalanche of orange, papaya and pineapple to this juicy drop. A hint of crystal and aurora malt bring honey sweetness and a beautifully full body that lingers.

OUR CLASSIC RANGE

Rotating brews, each available for a short period of time. This range pays homage to the classics – traditional styles from around the world; Belgium, England, Germany, Czech Republic, Ireland and Scotland – crafted locally with a Wellington edge and a reverence and respect that would make the old world breweries proud.

RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT

What better way to jump into winter than with a stout that the Russians would toast in the cold seasons (and the Russians certainly know about cold weather). Brewed with loads of dark roasted malts allowing us to indulge ourselves with an 8.9% Imperial Stout. Full bodied with a range of complex flavours of chocolate, caramel and hints of fruit finishing with roasted barley notes carried through with the high ABV. Consume slowly and enjoy.

ENGLISH BITTER

Brewed with the respect a traditional style deserves, this English Bitter combines a healthy dose of toffee, caramel and roast malt character, balanced with a herbal bitterness from the English hops and berry notes from the English yeast strain.

Pours a beautiful toffee amber colour with an off-white head. Match it with traditional English pub grub – Meat pie, sausage and mash, or a hearty stew.

MOTHER MAIDEN CRONE

When Whistling Sisters and Small Gods got together and decided the world needed a little bit of their collab magic – our Triple Pepper Tripel was born. It has an alluring dry and spicy character thanks to the simple malt bill and the addition of traditional coriander, as well as a touch of delicious Belgian candi sugar. Last but not least is the inclusion of the triple threat – white, black and green peppercorns. Just like the lunar phases, life is ever ever-changing but the good fortune and privilege of enjoying a brew is one of life’s greatest treasures.
