A group of friends came up with the idea to create a one-stop shop that is all about beer. We are so lucky to have hops and grain both grown so close to Nelson.

And so – Craft Beer Depot was born in April 2016. We want to invite you to come to discover the delight of craft beer at the Craft Beer Depot.

Our mission is to provide an environment, which is welcoming and inclusive, where you can ask any question you want and our helpful team will help you – not sneer at you.

A team which is free to choose the products we want to stock, and we choose to stock great beers from local, national and international producers who have one similarity – they hold the craft of brewing central to their ethos and are independent of mega-corporations.
