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

To be honest we only decided to go to fill in some time in Dunedin and it totally exceeded my expectation. Our tour guide was really enthusiastic and full of knowledge. You could feel his love for the place and its history which was great. I was surprised by some of the information and how advanced they were years ago... More

When next in Dunedin go along to the Speights Brewery and take a tour. They discuss the history of Speights as well as the different beers in NZ, show you the vats, and teach about making beer. You even get to pour your own choice of beer - lager, cider, etc which makes a great photo opportunity. After your tour... More

And I left without feeling I had been ripped off. Don't like the fact that if you eat in the bar you have to go and... More

The tour was a very pleasant surprise and I was very pleased indeed to learn that one of the founders was William Dawson and that he had a connection with Aberdeen, Scotland. I am from Stevenston, Ayrshire in Scotland and my father's name was William Dawson. I bought a poster of William Dawson and it now hangs (framed) in my... More

Very well organised tour in their original buildings. Good opportunity to see the brewing process from start to finish with a tasting. Good souvenirs available.
