Craft beer in a rural New Zealand setting
Surrounded by the rolling pastures of the Matakana region north of Auckland, the rustic ambience of this craft brewery belies the subtle sophistication of the food and drinks on offer. The attached Smoko Room restaurant turns out excellent shared plates with a global spin—try the turmeric spiced goat hummus with cumin flatbreads—and the canny brewers are forever crafting interesting seasonal beers to complement Sawmill's core range. Standout beers include a citrusy pale ale and a crisp lager showcasing zesty New Zealand hops, and a tasting tray of five brews is the best option for curious traveling beer fans. Leave room for dessert of an ice-cream sandwich combining New Zealand's signature Anzac cookie and salted caramel gelato.
