Being a beer drinker helps. Found the tour very good with the guide having good knowledge. The tour was relaxed and catered for all in the group.

Great tour with an excellent well-informed guide. Interesting to learn the history of beer in their excellent museum. All the copper vessels looked magnificent. Pity it is all going to be brewed in stainless steel from now on. Awkward to get to and very little parking but well worth the effort.

Very unimpressed, group too big so difficult to hear, guide seemed to be in a hurry to get us through. Some history but didn't have time to absorb. Have been on other brewery/ whiskey tours which were much better.

Myself and my fianceé spent an evening getting a fantastic tour of the Speights Brewery on our travels around NZ. We absolutely loved it, we had a fantantiscally animated tour guide and enjoyed every minute of it - I will definately return one day to do the tour again!

We really enjoyed this very informative tour and took the dinner and tour option. You are able to take photos on this tour and are given opportunities to do so. They have put a lot of thought and effort into this tour and it is proffesionally executed.

If you like beer and want to test out your barman skills then go on this tour! It is $28 and lasts about 2 hours. You get to walk round the brewery whilst hearing funny tales from the guides about the history to it all and then spend a good 30-40mins in the bar sampling the beer! Well worth the... More
