Wild Workshop Taproom & Cellar Door cover image

Welcome to the Wild Workshop Taproom & Cellar Door - your chance to step inside our central Wellington brewery.

The Wild Workshop is our playground for creating all things weird and wonderful: barrel-aged sours, spontaneous ferments, beer-wine hybrids, and tanks brimming with fruit. When visiting, you'll sit in amongst our amphoras and foeders, soaking up the sights and smells of a working brewery. The Workshop is open from Friday until Sunday. During opening hours, come by at will to taste, explore and have a sensory adventure. We also offer more structured tours, if that is what you're into - more info on these below.

Expect new releases, exclusive one-off beers straight out of barrel, special appearances from our cellar and delicious food specials - all for tasting, on tap and takeaway. Our crew are ready and waiting to talk you through each beer, answer any questions and gently guide you through the world of the Wild Workshop.

You can grab flagons of beer from our six taps - BYO flagon or grab one of ours. We highly encourage reusable vessels and have several great options - and we'll fill anything that seals! Single-use plastic is bad for the planet, so every time you refill your PET is a win for the environment. If not the taps, you can grab a selection of cans and bottles from the fridge. We make sure to always have the freshest releases in the fridge, wild or not, alongside singles and six-packs of a range of our classics. Check out our next tap line up below!

Kids are welcome, with the supervision of their parents or legal guardians. We are devastated to say that doggos can't enter this space - a working brewery! Please bring them by our bar and cellar door in Aro anytime, so that we can lavish them with affection.


For the first time ever in a Garage Project brewery, we can now offer tours through the space - the ultimate sensory exploration! While you can still come in any time during our opening hours and grab tasters or a flight over the counter, a tour is a great way to get a guided sensory experience through the wonders of the Wild Workshop. On these tours, you’ll be taken through a range of weird and wonderful beers and wines made in the brewery as you walk through the barrels and tanks, learning about the process of brewing and cellaring, with some delicious morsels to match.
