For a number of years the team at the Sawmill Brewery have been brewing out of the old Sawmill just out of Leigh. The Sawmill Cafe became quite an institution, with live gigs, great food and some fantastic accommodation options. Nearly 12 months ago the team moved closer to Matakana with a custom made brewery that also houses a bar and eatery. The move has been a success with not only the beer receiving great reviews but also the delicious food.
The 50 minute north from the CBD is well worth it!
