Marlborough, New Zealand

The Golden Mile Brewing Co was born along the biking haven of
The Golden Mile in Marlborough, New Zealand.

Based within The Vines Village, in the world famous wine producing area of Rapaura Road, Marlborough, New Zealand - Golden Mile Brewing has created a cycle friendly beer range, perfect for celebrating that epic
New Zealand ride. GMB invites you to savour the clean, crisp and classic beer range perfect
for the off and on road adventurers.

Each style of beer has been brewed to suit bikers who like beer, the perfect finish
to a great

day out riding. The design has a nostalgic nod to vintage biking posters and themed

around the various bike riding styles - Touring/Cruiser, MTB, Fixie & Roadies.

Each label shape is reminiscent of old head badges of bikes from days gone by.
And the slope of the bottom hill is the degree equivalent of the alc volume.

Grab a mixed pack and or try them by the pint at the GMB Taproom at The Vines Village, 193 Rapaura Rd Marlborough 7273, Ph +64 3 572 7170. Open 7 Days 10am-5pm.

ABV:                  4%      IBU:    15

Available:         12 x 330ml bottles
Theme:            Fixie / Single Speed


A Dark Ale with chocolate notes and a smooth, rich, malty base, carefully brewed with a nod to porters from London in the 18th century.

This classic English style ale is made with low levels of earthy UK Fuggle hops, balanced with a touch of sweet caramel malts from NZ. Roasted barley and chocolate malt give nice toasty flavours and dark colour without being astringent and bitter. Some mild berry like esters from warm fermented top cropping UK yeast. Sweet and chocolatey from crystal + chocolate malts. A sweet finish with some dry toasty mid pallet flavours, a very sessionable mild dark ale.

Ideally matched with lamb shanks, pies and good hearty winter menus around the fire post-ride.


Style:                 Indian Pale Ale

ABV:                  6.6%     IBU:    64

Available:          12 x 330ml bottles & On Tap (from the Golden Mile Brewing Tap Room, Fill your own growler)
Theme:            Cyclocross

Loaded with hoppy goodness, the Switchback Taiheke IPA is the ‘wild child’ of the GMB beer range. A pale ale packed with a fruity yet crisp punch.

Switchback is a very hop forward, exciting IPA. It showcases the very best of US and NZ hops. Classic NZ Taiheke provides much of the flavour of this beer, with spicy, resinous, punchy fruit flavours - while US Simcoe and Mosaic provide an extra level of complexity to this beer with lime, and stone fruits. Switchback is delicately balanced with some subtle malt sweetness, to provide a gentle cushion for the hops to shine. It is pale in colour, fresh in flavour and decidedly delicious.

Try it with roast pork and apple sauce after a mammoth mountain climb or hard-earned downhill session.



Style:                 American Pale Ale

ABV:                  5.4%    IBU:    55

Available:          12 x 330ml bottles and On Tap (from the Vines Village Cafe, Fill your own growler)
Theme:            Road Bike

Breakaway APA is a full on hop-packed American-style pale ale. 

Bursting with tropical fruit flavours, citrus and pine aromas and punchy up front bitterness all from a combination of classic US and NZ hops. Nelson Sauvin provide interesting spicy and fresh aroma of cut-grass, while Motueka gives passionfruit, and grapefruit. These NZ hops balance nicely with the US Simcoe which has a more stone fruit, resinous flavour, while Citra gives the classical US citrus zest. All these hops sit beautifully with a full malt bodied beer, that should be both full and drinkable. 

Try it with a home made venison or beef and cheese pie after a long day attacking off the front either on or off the road.



Style:                 Dry Apple Cider

ABV:                  5%

Available:          On Tap (from the Vines Village Cafe, Fill your own growler)
                          & available by 330ml bottle..

On site, GMB produces a pleasant and appealing crisp Apple Cider with added sweetness from seasonal regional fruit (Feijoa, Black Doris). Our bottled Apple Cider a classic slow fermented 100% apple cider made from Gala, Braeburn and Granny Smith apples. Medium dry in style and flavour. Delicate fizz with freshness, a rounded mouth feel and ready to enjoy after a great ride in the sunshine with mates. Try it with ice.

The apple flavours are light and pleasant and the overall taste is refreshing.
So far we have made a Plum Apple Cider and Feijoa Apple Cider. Try it on ice, fresh from the tap and it goes down well anytime of day!
