Eddyline Brewery is a 100% family-owned New Zealand brewery, opened in 2016 by Mic and Molley Heynekamp after decades of success in Colorado, where they also owned a brewery called Eddyline.
After moving to Nelson, they started out in Richmond, with the Eddyline Pizzeria but have since sold that business and have built a new production brewery nearby.
They also sold the Colorado brewery to focus on New Zealand and had one of their biggest success stories when they won The Malthouse West Coast IPA Challenge in 2022 with That Eddy’s Drop.
