Terry McCashin began making the Mac’s naturally brewed beer in 1981 at the old Rochdale cider factory in Nelson. Today, even though Terry’s moved on, we remain determined to keep his combination of quality and ingenuity alive. Why? Mostly because we think the rest of the world is starting to see things our way. These days, people want more variety in their beer. They’re looking for a quality experience with an emphasis on natural processes and real craftmanship. We have one goal and one goal only – making magnificent beer!

Blue Fridge Brewery

Blue Fridge Brewery

It’s a story of blood, sweat and beers that began in 2015. Based in the Coromandel coastal village of Kuaotunu, the business is the passion project of Adam Coleman-Smith.

Blue Fridge Brewery stays true to its roots by minimising its environmental footprint, using quality local ingredients, selling locally, reducing waste by giving our spent grain to animals and cleaning both equipment and brewery with eco-friendly products.

Their well-balanced, ultra-drinkable beers cater to different tastes, but they’re all made with heart.

Since 1925, Corona has been encouraging beer drinkers to enjoy the beach, the surf and sunsets. To share time with mates in a place where the pace is slower, the vibe more relaxed, and life’s simple pleasures all the more enjoyable.

Our philosophy has been embraced around the world in over 180 countries, including here in Whitianga. Our refreshing flavour, complimented with a lime in the iconic clear bottle, is best consumed as the sun sets on a day in the Coromandel.

Corona is more than just a beer; it’s a lifestyle.
