A short time ago, in a galaxy not so far away... Three friends on the planet Hoptron - Ozzy, Lemmy, and Kurt –were part of a military unit double-crossed and murdered on the battlefield by their own military leader, Captain Darkness. Shazza, the desperate and grieving widow of Ozzy, stole a secret potion from her grandfather, the keeper of the sacred Hop of Eternal Life. Sprinkling the secret potion, known as ‘The Juice’ onto the graves of Ozzy and his team, she began to bring them back to life. But she was interrupted just as they emerged, their faces still bone skulls.

Owners Matt and Selena developed the Boneface craft beer brand from a love of all things beer and sci-fi. All beers are cleverly crafted to incorporate Planet Hoptron (that’s the Planet of Hops, if you are wondering), and it’s inhabitants.

Bringing the goodness of Planet Hoptron to Upper Hutt was a no-brainer – Matt’s brewing background, along with Selena’s passion for craft beer, fit perfectly into the burgeoning Upper Hutt craft beer mecca. Whilst brewing the favourites, they are always in a parallel universe, developing new and innovative craft beer flavours for you to try.

Bar and eatery open Tuesday 5pm-9pm & Wednesday to Sunday 11am-9pm

We believe our beers are some of the best Wellington, Heck, New Zealand, have to offer! Sure, we have our usual range of beers on tap, which are available year-round; but we also like to mix things up and have special one-time creations available for a limited time. Buy online or visit our Upper Hutt-based brewery and eatery today.
