About us..

Dave and Mark purchased Two Thumb in 2017 after a night on the town.  The story says they were drinking Two Thumb beer in a bar and casually commented that if this brewery ever came up for sale, they should buy it. The very next week it did exactly that... so they did.

We still run that original brewery kit at our Manchester Street site, and it will be familiar to those people that remember the pre quake iconic venue Dux de Lux. The laid-back atmosphere of our original home continues to be a local favourite.


Fast forward a few years, Two Thumb has been joined by third owner Andy and has opened its doors to a new state of the art brewery and bar here on Colombo Street.


The brewery is largely solar-powered and features cutting-edge eco-friendly technology.

Our focus has always been good beer and good times, and we want to keep it that way.  Two Thumb beers are batch brewed by hand and show off the wonderful flavours and aromas of the locally sourced malts and hops.



Exciting times ahead!

A sense of community is at the heart of everything we do, so raising funds through Equity Crowdfunding is the perfect way to provide our fans with an opportunity to own a piece of the brew bar they’ve come to love.

At the start of 2022, Two Thumb moved into a state-of-the-art facility built in

2018 by Lion Nathan in Colombo Street Central Christchurch. The new facility

not only provides a new brewpub, but increases annual production capability

from 50,000 to over 1 million litres. This far exceeds current brewing demand

for the Two Thumb bars and so provides the opportunity to grow retail sales to

supermarkets, bars and restaurants across New Zealand and deliver additional

revenues from opening further Two Thumb venues.  At such a pivotal moment

in the growth of the brewery, the team are looking to raise funds to bring on

additional sales and marketing resources, execute the tremendous growth

opportunities ahead, and bring their new shareholders along for the ride and

provide them with a significant return on their investment.
