A bit about us..
Ferris Road Brewery is the brain child of local Sam Forsyth. Sam has a passion for
craft beers and has been brewing up this business for some time. Along the way he experimented with malts, hops and techniques, learning equipment use and flavour combinations to get Ferris Road brews uniquely ’just right’. See what YOU think!
As brew sales grew, so did the need for dedicated brewery and storage space. Sam
did the math and stepped up, the result was a purchase of 7 Ngapara Street. What followed was a massive refurbishment and fit out of not only a brewery, but also the new tap-room and bar facility alongside kitchen and food prep areas. To be honest, he couldn’t be prouder of the tap-room’s new-old fit out as well as the excellent brewing space out the back. It's been a lot of work with help from many talented trades people from all round Central Otago and showcases the skills of each business.
The focal point of the food service is the wood-fired pizza oven where pizza dough (made on site) and tasty ingredients are carefully laid onto bases, these are then baked in the pizza oven and watched carefully until ‘just right’, they are then sliced, seasoned to your preference and served to your table on wooden platters designed for sharing.
We now have the pleasure of inviting you to 'our place' where we are sure you and
your taste buds will be very happy! So come, warm yourself by the cosy fire, try one
of our delicious wood fired pizzas and sample our selection of craft beers, or maybe
a local wine, to find your favourite tipple.
Ferris Road Brewery is the first licensed brewery in Alexandra since 1870. Previously the Theyers & Beck’s Brewery was situated on Manuherikia Road, opposite the Alexandra Holiday Park. It was erected in 1870 and brewed until 1880 when cordial
was made until 1908, the building was sold and used as a rabbit cannery and this closed in 1915. The building can still be seen as a mud brick shed opposite the Alexandra Holiday Park entrance and within easy walking distance of our tap-room
at 7 Ngapara St, Alexandra.
