We are a craft brewery and the best kept secret in Christchurch, New Zealand. We offer a wide variety of core and seasonal craft beer as well as a venue for a quick drink after work, few drinks over the weekend with live music or even host your private event party by us! 

We use Canterbury malts and NZ hops for the majority of our beers ... only straying to the american hops for specific beers ;-) All our beers are small batch brewed, unfiltered and have no additives, to show off the wonderful flavours and aromas of the malts and hops. Brewed with the fantastic pure Canterbury water.

Look out for our core range - New Zealand Pale Ale, Hop Helmet IPA, Red Rye IPA, Kölsch Lager, Oatmeal Stout - in bars and supermarkets across Christchurch and beyond.

Mark and Dave ... two likely lads from Yorkshire (but don’t hold that against them) ... have built on the firm foundation, great reputation, and detailed brew processes that were laid down by Clayton, the original Two Thumber. Quality craft beer is the goal - we think we’ve scored :o)


Our core range reflects a variety of styles and covers every palette. From the light and fruity Kolsch (a typical German style lager) to the dark, rich Oatmeal Stout, there is something for everyone. All our core range beers are skilfully hand crafted with the attention to detail that gives Two Thumb beer its distinctive rich and complex taste. Available in 528ml, 328ml or 888ml bottle sizes or in kegs of 20L or 50L
