Tapawera Hop Bar

We serve great local beers from The Hop Farm Brewery, New Zealand's first hop farm brewery. We have a spacious and comfortable bar area where you can enjoy your food and drinks.

Make an evening of it and enjoy the pub games like pool and darts. We also have a small gaming room / pokies.

Hops have been grown in the Rakau area towards Tadmor for about a hundred years, and hop growing has boomed in recent years near Tapawera. There are now hop gardens all along the Motueka Valley Highway between the township and Kohatu and beyond going westward. And in the other direction from Tapawera heading towards Motueka, and up the Tapawera-Baton Road - so what a great area to enjoy a local craft beer.

The Hop Bar also has a bottle store so you can take your favourite tipple home with your fish and chips. See our takeaway menu here.
