“Good value, super beers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide (Phillipa) not a great deal to the tour but got to see all the different parts from brewing to bottling. The brewery is all about creating new types of beer and you get to choose 3 beers as part of the tour plus you get a fourth that you pour yourself and also money off vouchers around the area so great value. Nice contemporary setting too and friendly locals.

“Good brewery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We arrived late into Greymouth and our hotel managed to get my girlfriend and I into the last tour of the night. They held back starting for us which was a lovely touch. The tour explains the history of the brewery and the process of how they make the different beers. It is a little sad to discover that they sold out to DB who now make most of the beer in a different site but still to the original recipes.

Our tour guide Steve had a good knowledge of the process.

I would recommend going to the earlier tours as you will see the brewery in operation. If however you can't it still worth the time to go along.

Nice range of beers and good experience pouring your own taster of one!

“Great Beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

I really liked the small pub available at the Monteith's Brewing and the tour is very interesting. Try the tasting beers with their awesome french fries! The Radler was perfect for a hot weather :)

“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Towards the end of our South Island road trip we swung by Greymouth for the sole reason of coming to the brewery. We were not disappointed! We took part in the tour for $20 which was around half an hour, and then taste testing and pouring our own beers. Lovely explanations about the brewing process and tasting notes made it a very enjoyable experience. As well as the tour, purchasing the ticket gave us access to 2 free beers from the bar, as well as discounts for other attractions around Greymouth, which was a really great way to advertise the area. We were able to take advantage of a discount off a river tubing tour the following day. We went back to the brewery each day we were there for lovely beer in a warm environment, a few bits and pieces from the kitchen, and even a bit of merchandise. A really great time and looking forward to going back.

“Quick visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Only had a short stay in Greymouth and arrived to late to do a brewery tour, however had a lovely beer and cider here and were made to feel very welcome.
My husband wanted to buy the whole selection of ales on offer to take away unfortunately we were flying back to the north island and couldn't fit them in!!
Worth a visit if you like your ales.
