Welcome to Aotearoa Breweries website.

Aotearoa Breweries is a family run business based in the sunny Eastern Bay of Plenty. With a love for great beer, and a passion to brew unique New Zealand styles in 2005 Tammy Viitakangas brought MATA beer to life along with mum Gloria, dad Jouni & Uncle Esko.

With pride and passion we continue to create and brew an innovative range of award winning flavoursome beers. We brew festive and seasonal beers from time to time which may not be featured on our website so please follow us on facebook and twitter for updates.
