Cassels Packaged

Our finest beers are now available in single 518ml bottles, 328ml 6-packs and cans.

Cassels are one of only a few breweries in New Zealand who choose to use a high percentage of whole hops in all our beer styles to ensure we achieve the character and quality we desire.

We also aim to source ingredients which are produced in our own “backyard” including malts from Dunsandel in Canterbury and hops from the Upper South Island.

The result? A range of well-balanced, full-bodied, top-quality beers. Browse our range of NZ craft beer available in bottles below.
