Founders Café and Founders Organic Brewery - Brewpub

Founders Historic Park, 87 Atawhai Drive, Nelson
The Wood, Nelson/Marlborough
Founders café is attached to Founders Organic Brewery in Founders Park.

Founders was established in 1999 by John and Carol Duncan as New Zealand and Australasia's first organic brewery. Despite state-of-the-art equipment in the brewhouse, the ales are brewed according to the `Reinheitsgebot’, a 16th century Bavarian beer purity law. Founders ales are GE-free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Ph 03.548.4638

In 2012 Founders was sold to Independent Liquor following the trend for major suppliers to acquire craft brewers.

There is now a hop museum detailing the history of craft beer and hop harvesting in the Nelson region.
