My husband and I like our beer but were disappointed on arrival. The tasting was not in the brewery but in a cafe where the beer in the tasting platter was served in plastic cups. We were given a menu to follow and that was it.

This was our first ever brewery tour and was not disappointed. Love how small the brewery is, feel so much more involved and our tour guide knew everything as he personally is involved in the brewing. Great tasting set at the end too, even with cheese as well! A must in the small town of wanaka!

Maybe this place is ok if you do the tour but as a 'stop in to try some beers and hang out' venue it is all wrong. We just wanted to try some beers and then drink some beers but it felt all wrong surrounded by toys and kids. The beers were good but I think they've missed the point... More

Had the brewery tour which was informative and told us and showed how they produce then got some beer tasting afterwards. They have some great beers and even purchased. Recommend if in the area. tour is at 2pm so recommend getting there at least 15 mins before.

Informative and friendly and interesting. Currently only two beers available to taste but they were very nice (and I'm not really a beer drinker although finding craft beers more my style). Worth a visit and a taste, perhaps some to take home as well.

Dave the Belgian brewmaster is welcoming and knows his stuff. The beers are great (I actually smuggled a mix-six box in my luggage back into my present country. In addition to the wines we got from Rippon) We tried some of the Cardrona gold and another one- i forget the name - a pilsner, on premises and he explained about... More

Tours of this family-run microbrewery take place daily and for $10pp we were shown round by the Belgian owner then had a tasting of three beers of our choice. Great value and lovely beers! Like other reviewers we were the only guests on the tour so the owner was able to take his time and answer our questions thoroughly. It... More

We visited and did the brewery tour (despite the Lonely Planet saying bookings were recommended, we were the only people on the tour). The cost of the tour was $10 and that included three 150ml tasting glasses as well. The beer was delicious, especially the range of seasonal beers. Not bad prices on bottles of beer either, 24 delicious beers... More

Beer was very tasty. Had a good selection of craft beers. The bar itself could be presented better. The person that served us left and the bar was unattended, we only stayed for the one beer so it didn't matter to us.
