Award winning New Zealand craft beer producer, Renaissance Brewing, is situated in the heart of Marlborough wine country at the top of New Zealand's south island. It was established in 2005 when experienced brewers Andy Deuchars and Brian Thiel purchased the lease on the historic Grove Mill in Blenheim. By 2007 they were gaining awards and recognition, and becoming a big name. Their aim is to make beers that rival our grape based cousins. They produce top end, ultra premium ales that enlighten the palate and thrill the senses. They are committed to using local ingredients and are one of the pioneers of craft brewing in New Zealand. Their beers nicely showcase New Zealand hops and malt in a range of British, American and European styles.
