Stopped here with my girlfriend for lunch on a get away trip down to New Plymouth. From the road doesn't look like all to much, but once we had got around the corner of the drive and parked up we knew we were in the right place. Good selection of beer, and other merchandise if your into that sort of... More

OK, this trip was May 2013, but they don't go back that far. I'm behind, to put it mildly. Saw this place on the way to New Plymouth, and couldn't resist. Their Double IPA is pretty good, pale ale not bad. No tour, restaurant wasn't open, but I have a blind spot for places like this. And a good DIPA... More

We visited Mike's for the tour, a tasting and stayed for lunch. The day we visited Ron was not there but the members of his team led by Christine went out of their way to give us a great tour of the facility and enlighten us on how they make the different beers. We were able to taste many of... More

We were a group of five adults who went out for lunch. The choices were a pizza or a cheese board. There were some cold drinks and of course the beer. Service was incredibly slow.

Our last attempt was much the same as that of the writer of 'Huge disappointment'. Fearing a repeat we rang ahead to ascertain they weren't overrun by local bogans. Roger negative, we ventured out of the big (ish) smoke full hope and a not unsubstantial thirst. The reception / bar was hosting bags of recently laundered washing but oh well,... More

Ron took this business over from Mike a few years ago and since then it has gone from strength to strength. Mike's portfolio was limited to a couple of good beers but now Ron has turned that into over twenty different offerings across lots of different beer styles which, in my opinion, range from very good to great. The brewery... More

We were there with a group and were expected. What was an absolute pleasure was to find a carrot cake and scones with tea and coffee waiting for us on arrival . The beer tastings then went down well and we willingly reciprocated with some good sales. Our thanks for a great day!

Discovered this gem by chance when we stopped to have afternoon tea on the way south to New Plymouth. The brewery offered very good range of beers of which we chose one with more hops.

Stopped off to pick pm some beers. Everyone who worked there was very friendly and knew loads about beer and brewing. Their passion shone through. Most importantly the beers are lovely.

Had a very disappointing visit to Mikes Brewery and even more disappointing given that it was one of the reasons that we decided to holiday in Taranaki. On arriving at Mikes we were informed that things were a bit disorganised due to a big event coming up in the weekend but we were told we could still have lunch and... More
