Does your current distributor:

  • Go to beer events?

  • Support your brewpub?

  • Drink your beers? (or beer in general)

  • Are they involved in the industry?

  • Do their representatives know about beer?

BEERNZ is made up of beer enthusiasts with all staff having a vast knowledge of the beers we stock and the breweries we represent. We are involved in industry events, attending festivals to represent those breweries that can’t be there. Craig Bowen (Founder and CEO) is a specialist in beer awards, and Wendy Roigard (Co-Director) is a brewer and a beer judge. With such strong commitment to the industry, BEERNZ spend their time promoting your brewery.

Not only do we know about beer but we know how to store, chill, insure and distribute your product nationwide promptly, relieving you of these burdens. We take responsibility for freight between the breweries and the customer. Your stock is cared for and insured while it is with us. We handle all communications with the customer to allow you to focus on your beer. Taking care of storage, invoicing, distribution, logistics, chasing bad debts, promotion and negotiating in the corporate jungle is why breweries choose to have BEERNZ represent them.

Every brewery is showcased individually on the BEERNZ e-commerce website utilising professionally photographed and high-resolution images of your bottled stock. Customers are kept informed of new releases, upcoming events and current price lists via our website, social media, email and phone. Further, customers can order your beers online via our website, by phone, email, fax or even text. No matter their preference, we make accessing your beers as easy as possible.

BEERNZ manages the recall process should an unforeseen incident occur. Imagine how costly and time-consuming recalling a batch of beer from 150 outlets, freighting replacement stock and arranging credits would be to your business. We provide you with regular reporting on where your sales have been made and facilitate samples into magazines and media reviewers, etc. BEERNZ also owns a significant volume of its own kegs. These may be especially useful for contract brewers (these kegs may be subject to charge and are exclusive only to sales made by BEERNZ).

  • Your beer is stored chilled in a purpose-built chiller
