Disgusted craft beer bars and retailers say they'll no longer stock a Canterbury brewery's range, after its owner posted an anti-Maori rant on social media.

The comments from Eagle Brewing owner David Gaughan have been strongly condemned by those in the craft beer industry as racist and deplorable.

Gaughan says he is considering resigning from the Kaiapoi-based brewery and wants to unlearn racial bias and better understand Māori culture.
