Coming Soon…..Local Brewery and Tap Room
Dark Horse Brew Werkz is the result of hard work and a passion for brewing great beers. Equipped with a Nano Brewhouse imported from the USA, Dark Horse Brew Werkz will produce and create a wide variety of different beer styles and cider. Cleverly located in the lovely schist stone building (known as McKinnons) within the grounds of the Omakau Commercial Hotel, the Tap Room is the center piece of this historic property. Believed to have been built in the late 1880’s by Mr William Leask (who built the hotel as his homestead in 1898), this was originally built to house his work horses, and the other half of the building was his shearing shed. river flooded – hence, to our good fortune, the construction of the stables.
Steeped in history, the Tap Room is currently being developed to retain its historic charm while providing the ideal location to enjoy some craft beer and a meal.
The Tap Room is also the perfect and unique location for those special functions and intimate weddings. Private and secluded, the atmosphere and ambience is something quite special and certainly makes it a night to be remembered. Our chefs compliment the evening with their menu choices. If you would like to enquire about a function or a conference in McKinnons, please don’t hesitate to contact us
