How we started

b.effect was started by James Hay back in 2015 with the idea of creating refreshing sessionable craft beers. In 2019 b.effect started building it’s own brewery & tasting room in the heart of Anderson Heights, Wanaka. They took an old car mechanic workshop and turned it into the brewery and taproom of their dreams. We now make a range of beverages beers, cider, ginger beer, & Kombucha’s all onsite.


The b.effect name comes from Edward Lorenz’s Butterfly Effect – ‘small changes can cause great effects’. We use this philosophy to guide us in the brewing process and how we operate as a business. Change is our only constant so we’re always looking to improve.
