About Us

Welcome to Beer Necessities, your number one source for ingredients for all-grain brewing. We’re dedicated to bringing you the best products, the best service and the best prices that we can offer.

Beer Necessities began in 2014 in Auckland, selling mainly stainless steel fittings and custom built all-grain brewing systems from our home. In 2016 we made the move down to the Bay of Plenty and opened a brick and mortar store for Beer Necessities in Tauranga. We always had inspirations to start a brewery, and within 18 months we had a premise and started Lumberjack Brewing out at Pukehina Beach.

Unfortunately, due to the heavy time constraints with Lumberjack Brewing, we had to close the doors on our retail store in late 2017, but we have continued selling online and servicing the strong customer base that we had established with Beer Necessities in Tauranga.

Today, Ian is head-brewer at Lumberjack Brewing and takes care of most of the day to day running of Beer Necessities. Jordan assists wherever possible and does the majority of order fulfillment. We are both very passionate about brewing great beer and helping our customers make the best beer possible. We take care to store all of our ingredients correctly, and by also supplying the brewery they are always exceptionally fresh to give our customers the best product possible.

If there is anything that we can do to support you in making better beer, we would love to be able to help.
