Kaiser Brothers Brewery – craft beers inspired by a centuries-old Bavarian family recipe brewed in Christchurch the Kiwi way. Three German-Kiwi brothers, whose great uncle established Bavaria’s renowned Kaiser Brewery, established the brewery in 2016 remaining true to their heritage – making real beer for beer lovers to enjoy.
Just like those made in Bavaria using the original 1862 brew recipe, we make Kaiser Brothers Brewery beers honestly for flavour and taste. As it was in the 1800’s Kaiser Brothers beers are made by real people using real, quality local ingredients. We start with Canterbury’s world-renowned artisan water and the finest ingredients from the pristine South Island. Delivering on our honesty policy we add yeast which is true to the style of beer. You’ll taste Germanic yeast in our Pilsener and Weizen, English yeast in ESB and (you guessed it) American yeast for our APA.
This range of four beers is approachable (we don’t try to wow with fancy names and crazy packaging) and always available. Whatever the day, whatever the weather, beer lovers can always enjoy Kaiser Brothers Brewery Pilsner, ESB, APA and Weizen.
Beer requires real ingredients grown from the land and therefore real beers mirror the seasons. So from time to time, our Kaiser Brothers Brewery brew crew mix it up, having fun with styles and recipes creating special limited release and seasonal craft beers to reflect the taste of the region and its growing season.
Even though the original brew recipe came from the other side of the world, Kaiser Brothers Brewery isn’t over the top, confusing or pretentious. Even with our Bavarian heritage Kaiser Brothers Brewery beers are Kiwi-as, we craft them to be confident in a genuine down-to-earth, full-flavoured Kiwi way.

the Aotearoa way.. - Kaiser Brothers Brewing Captain, Dicky
Kaiser Brothers Brewing Captain Dicky Fife is energetic, passionate and personable. What’s more Dicky loves a chat – and he loves it even better if he can include a craft beer tasting.
Five years as a chef, more than 25 years as a master brewer with a decade winemaking, experience as a senior beer judge and winning numerous brewing trophies and medals have cemented Dicky’s status as a New Zealand brewing industry legend.
Dicky says making beer is just like making great food – make everything from scratch with quality ingredients. On top of that, he recommends experimenting.
Outside the brewery, you’ll usually find Dicky in the kitchen playing with flavour. When not in the kitchen, Dicky could be paddle boarding –
which is appropriate, as a paddle is essential equipment for handmade craft beer!
