Brewery Tap Room & Off Licence

A visit to our tap room is a great chance to rub shoulders with our award-winning brewers, who frequent the licensed area to carry out all the important "quality control"; it's a contractual obligation - honestly!

You can take a little Tuatara home with you too! We sell our beer in single bottles, 6 packs, and in flagons ranging from 1L up to 2.85L. Feel free to bring your own flagon to fill, provided it is of an obvious or labelled volume.

We also have a range of wine, cider and soft drinks available.

Additionally we have some awesome Tuatara merchandise such as t-shirts, bottle openers, and beer glasses to let you boast about Tuatara's greatness to your friends.
