“Well worth the money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

The tour very informative, but the best thing about this tour has to be the amount of beer they throw in for you. They even give you a voucher to redeem a pint somewhere else???!! Although the price is normally $20 for this tour we used a discount website and paid half. What a great afternoon. Oh and the food is amazing!

“New Bar & Cafe-nice atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We did the brewery tour. It was a Saturday, so not much happening, but hubby enjoyed learning about the brewing techniques. We stayed on in the bar/cafe for a wee while and enjoyed sampling the beers & ciders with some West Coast whitebait patties-yum!. Nice new building with a pleasant & casual atmosphere. We will definitely visit again when we pass through Greymouth.

“Avoid the brewery tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

DB have taken over Monteith's are busy badge engineering, moving production elsewhere. There is therefore very limited amount of brewing going on here so not much to see. However, what is brewed here is excellent and well worth a visit for the bar/cafe and sample the various brews. We had a very good chowder to accompany the beer sampling.

Another plus for Greymouth is that it stays open all day Saturday AND Sunday.

There is a fee for the tour but obviously not for the bar/cafe

“Try not to stay all day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We arrived on the last day that they were going to be at that site. They had a new place they were moving to so, we didn't get the bewery tour per se. We did get to view a film and had an enthusiastic tour guide who obviously loved her job and Monteith. Loved sampling all their different brews. As we were the last tour of the day on the last day...there were several employees that wondered in to have a last glass. This was special. Order their pear cider any and every chance you get.
