Founded in 2013 Behemoth Brewing Company were contract brewers from the start

with Behemoth’s first solo commercial brew being put down at the Twisted Hop, with big thanks to Martin and Lisa Bennett for helping so much at the early stages. We have brewed our beers at quite a few different places over the last few years; places including The Twisted Hop, The Beer Fountain (Hallertau/Liberty), Kereru, Black Sands, Stainless Brewing, Deep Creek, 8 Wired, B Studio, Steam Brewing and are now brewing our beers in our own brewery on Dominion Road in Auckland's Mt Eden! As our team grows, along with our beer selection, we remember how we sure wouldn't be where we are without our contract partners.

Over the last 8 years Behemoth has made over 350 unique beers (this number grows weekly); many of those having been small-batch, one-offs. Behemoth always loves trying new things while using top notch ingredients to make quality beers. This is why we, the Behemoth family, aim to create a hospitable community through the enjoyment of craft beer. Beers that are big, on flavour and fun, but also on making people smile or have a laugh with our mascot, Churly, and their varied attire.

After a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2019 & 2020, Behemoth moved into their HQ on the corner of Dominion Road and Charles Street. And, with the help of 700+ Chur-holders, a brewpub (Churly's Brewpub + Eatery), production brewery, & new site in Titirangi (Churly’s Rise) have opened! With 30 taps between the two there's plenty of space for trying our most recent beers!

It has been a crazy few years (now up to a diverse team of 40+) and we feel so lucky to be able to produce and serve beers that people love to drink. The Behemoth team will always be working together to come up with new and interesting beers for you to enjoy. So look out for us, we will likely have something that is fun and tasty.

Chur!

Community

Is this you? Get in touch!

Local is best, as we all know so supporting our local people is paramount to our core values. Here’s a few that have allowed us to join their community over the years but we’re always keen on more!

  • Local Sport Team Sponsorship

    We love supporting our locals! Whether it's a sport team (GRAMMAR TEC RUGBY CLUB INC - Taniwhas), or a BBQ Team (MIle Marker 66 & Smoked Out West) it's all fun!

  • I Am Hope

    Talking to each other is a key part of mental health and sometimes, going to the pub and sharing a pint can encourage just that. That's why we made a beer in support if I AM HOPE called I AM HOP(E) and continue to be part of their network.

  • Unicorn Foundation

    Craft Beer & Bites is an annual event held in support of the Unicorn Foundation, a dedicated foundation intent on revolutionizing the way that Neuroendocrine Tumours are diagnosed and managed in New Zealand. We're proud to partner with them!

  • Westpac Rescue Helicopters

    Back in 2016 we collaborated to make "Free Ride" in support and as a thank you to Westpac Rescue Helicopters for their awesome work. Seriously they rock!! https://www.chopperappeal.co.nz/donate-now/
