Burkes Brewing Co is based at the Blue Lake Eatery & Bar in Lake Tekapo in the Mackenzie high country of South Canterbury.
Burkes beer can also be found nearby in Twizel, Omarama, Duntroon, Kimbell and wherever good beer is sold.
Burkes Brewing Co evolved from Seb Burke’s home brewing operation in June, 2015. From supplying one Twizel restaurant, to becoming the Mackenzie’s local drop, and now being distributed throughout the country, the rise of this small outfit has been stellar.
The brewery has grown in stature thanks to featuring a number of award-winning beers, being awarded Champion New Zealand Beer 2021 by the Brewers Guild Of New Zealand the most recent accolade.
