We spent a couple hours touring the brewery, our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour ends with a chance to taste 6 of their beers. Money and time well spent.

There were probably too many people on our tour, which the guide frequently referred to as we were asked to hurry through some exhibits.

This was a great fun tour, you get a great history of not only Speights but the New Zealand beer history including how the breweries banded together to fight prohibition, our tour guide Jane was knowledgeable and made the tour lots of fun with 'corny jokes'; at the end we got to taste 5 of their beers and a cider,...
