b.effect Brewing Co
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.
