Sawmill Brewery Tour


Most of you will know we've been pouring Sawmill Pilsner from our taps for quite some time now and we've got some great news!

We love everything about Sawmill, especially the beer they produce - this is why we've added some more of the Sawmill range to our new beer list. Now when you dine at Bird On A Wire you'll have a bit more selection from our favorite Auckland brewery - HOW EPIC?!

We'll still be pouring the beautiful Pilsner from the tap, but will also serving a range of cans and bottles including a Pale Ale, an XPA and a Session Pale Ale!


Sawmill is based in Leigh, Matakana and is probably the most beautiful brewery you'll ever see - not to mention it's New Zealand owned and run by a small and talented team.  The Brewery was established in 2004 on the site of what was once a local timber mill established in the 1860’s. Their brewing is underpinned by this heritage of craftsmanship and tenacity. 

In February 2016 they moved from the original site in Leigh, and we now work from premises just out of Matakana at 1004 Leigh Road. They recently opened the doors to the 'Smoko Room', a place in the brewery you can visit for generous hospitality, food with gumption, 14 beers on tap and a drinks list that showcases organic wines and the best New Zealand producers as well as flagon fills and take away beer.
