Shining Peak Brewing

A craft brewery and eatery in the heart of New Plymouth

At Shining Peak Brewing, we brew all our beers in our onsite brewery, serving them fresh from the tap with a locally sourced menu, inspired by award winning Head Chef – Freddie Ponder. Drop in say hi, grab a pint (or three) and learn a little bit about our special province while sipping on some locally crafted brews. Best of all, 5% of all the money you spend on our beer, is directly donated to a local organisation each and every month through our 5% Project. Drink Beer, Do Good.
