Here at The Rising Tide we are big on service, value, and all round good vibes. We have a serious passion for craft beer, love dumplings and are situated on a beautiful reserve with a huge outdoor deck equipped with a 17 Tap side Bar that soaks up the warm Mt Maunganui sun on the good days and comes equipped with windbreaks and outdoor heaters to keep you cosy on the not so good days. 

We have 39 craft taps stocking our own in-house brewery beers from Mount Brewing Co. and Funk Estate, along with rotating guest kegs of New Zealand's best craft beer, wine and cider.

Our resident Kitchen is operated by the delicious and popular Johney's Dumpling House and hosts a full menu suitable for meat lovers, vegetarians, vegans and gluten free customers.



The very vibrant and excitable (almost) two year old that is The Rising Tide is hugely excited to welcome its new sister bar ‘High Tide’ to the Mount Brewing Co family!

Opening in May 2018, ‘Our Place Tauranga’ devised and operated by the Little Big Events team, is located in the heart of Tauranga City Centre on Willow Street and will soon be the home to High Tide, a 40 tap craft beer, wine and cider bar attached to a Mount Brewing Co Pilot Brewery and will be built entirely from shipping containers stylishly reflective of its first born, The Rising Tide.

Our Place itself will be the home to community workshops, pop-up kitchens, history hubs, office space, great coffee, awesome events AND some of the most popular local food vendors, such as Johney’s Dumpling House, Southern Fries, More Pork BBQ, Wild One Whole foods and much more.

Not only is High Tide in the super exciting process of providing regular weekly, on-stage entertainment from the Bays best local artists, it is also in the dreamy-foodie-love process of cultivating relationships with each Food Vendor to offer a different deal each day of the week that combines your favourite bevvies with mouthwatering sweet and savory food dishes.
