This is a great tour. Graham was full of knowledge and made this fun while we learnt so much about this brewery. Highly recommend this when visiting Dunedin

we went for the tour with the meal. Very good value, meal was two courses with one drink. Tour included tastings for half an hour. Our guide Graham was very knowledgable and entertaining. the 60 minutes flew past and could have gone for longer. one of the highlights was pouring our beer!

My partner and I booked the brewery tour and dinner package. Our guide was funny and very knowledgable about the brewery and also, beer. Great to see how beer is created and craftsmanship required to get it right. A great history lesson about the old machinery and techniques used.

Interesting history of New Zealand brewing. We preferred the heritage copper equipment (sadly no longer in use) to the modern stainless steel. No brewing while we visited as it was a Friday. The personal touch was being shown around by the great grandson of one of the founders of the brewery! Enjoyable tasting session at the end of the tour.

Great tour and our guide was great. Trying the beer at the end was great so you can taste was is being produced and while in NZ we know what to drink. Would definitely recommend.

Our tour guide Keith was fantastic. A world of knowledge and answered every question with ease and a great sense of humour. Would have liked to see some working things but as it was Sunday might have been their day off.

Before going on this tour I wasn't sure I would enjoy it as I do not like beer, but I was wrong. This was a really interesting tour from start to finish. The guide was really knowledgable, funny and had some great stories to share. At the end of the tour there is a selection of beers to try and... More
