One evening over a couple of beers a bunch of friends talked about creating their own beer brand and brewery to show people what great beer can be and convert drinkers from the mass produced and chemical laden norm... it was at this moment that Good George was born.

The talk became reality when in 2011 they found a great location in the heart of Frankton, Hamilton and converted the old St George’s church into the Good George Brewery.

Good George has now grown to a team that includes 5 brewers. The recent addition of a bottling and canning line has allowed us to take Good George Brewing to the next level!

At Good George we share a common mission – ‘to create better beer moments’. Good George encourages drinkers to explore the awesome new world of beer and cider, show them how best to enjoy it, and have a bloody good time in the process.

White Ale 4.5%Awards

  • Cloudy pale yellow
  • Sweet orange, vinous, subtle spice
  • Creamy, peppery, refreshing

A crafty blend of New Zealand botanicals gives this wheat ale a subtle, spicy kick against the backdrop of sweet navel orange. It’s always summer somewhere in Waikato, the perfect everyday drop.


Amber Ale 3.7%Awards

  • Light brown
  • Caramel, tangelo, herbal, chocolate
  • Light, malty, sweet

Brewed with a classic English bitter in mind. This beer is about rich, caramel malts & spicy, marmaladey British and Kiwi hops. The Hard Workers beer, we’ll let you have a couple.


Sparkling Ale 4.5%Awards

  • Energy efficient lightbulb yellow
  • Citrus peel, digestive biscuit, floral
  • Malty, bittersweet, stone fruit

If you’re looking to step up from the usual, look no further. Hiding beneath its yellow raincoat are pockets of passionfruit, citrus & balanced biscuity brilliance. Scared of that bitterness? Take another sip.


IPA 5.8%Awards

  • Sunset gold, glowing
  • Lemon, fresh cut hay, herbal
  • Mandarin, grassy, pithy

Inspired by the heady, spicy lemon aroma of fresh German hops. Rich malty sweetness perfectly balanced with hoppy mouth-coating bitterness makes this drop magically moreish. (Disclaimer: although it’s an India Pale Ale, it was actually made here in Hamilton)


Cider 5.0%Awards

  • Golden delicious yellow
  • Wine-like, Granny Smith apple
  • Tart, sweet, refreshing

A good cider should balance fruity succulence with subtle tartness. We reckon we’ve hit it on the nose. Bursting on the palate with white-wine sweetness, the finish is crisp, dry & refreshing. Lip-smackingly drinkable.


Drop Hop Cider 5.0%Awards

  • Pale, clear, secretly fruity
  • Mango, passionfruit, grapefruit
  • Sweet, sour, tropical

What happens when brewers make cider? They throw oodles of hops into it of course! Take a few of the most intensely aromatic hop flowers from across the globe & make those apples sing notes of passionfruit, mango, papaya and grapefruit. Good? Yep!


Doris Cider 5.0%Awards

  • A seductive magenta
  • Plum, apple, grape
  • Sweet, refreshing, tart

All the GOODness of our popular cider married up with locally sourced Doris Plums. Hints of plum & fruit, with sweet and sour taste, makes this one dangerously refreshing.
