We made a flying visit to the very friendly bar, loved everything on offer for the tasting and while all the beers were fabulous, highly recommend a taste of the stout, even if you don't normally drink dark beer. Great place, great staff, good value.

Visited with some friends. Tried the beers and purchased beer. Was then charged for the tasting AND the beer! Should not charge for tasting when making a purchase. Other than that the barman was very knowledgeable and chatty.

We stopped by at Moa's when we stayed in Blenheim and OMG, I am so glad we did not miss out on it! The beer tasting was delicious, the cheese platter was great and the surrounding amazing! The staff was super friendly and helpful. They also have great specials on beer. I wish we could have stayed longer. You have... More

Stopped here on a bus tour for a beer tasting. Cider too. Very nice place with knowledgable staff. We tried several beers, all good. Your can purchase a pint or two and relax outdoors. A vineyard is across the road, and yes I did take a grape or two😉👌

Don't miss this fantastic brewery and bar! The staff is great and recommended some local ciders that we paired with local cheese.

Fantastic beers with really good service and good advice on a good range of beers from our barman Stefan. For $5 you can get a small sample of the 5 daily tap beers. A good range of other beers and items for sale plus a great beer garden under the trees - an absolute must visit for beer lovers!

Initially stop to enjoy the cider but they suggested visiting the nearby town for lunch. Came back and enjoyed the company of a number of people who were sampling the fine beer on offer at MOA. Highly recommended

I had no idea there would be a brewery on the wine route and luckily came across Moa. The atmosphere was great, very chilled out and we spent a nice afternoon relaxing on the bean bags, tasting beers and ciders.
