I visited Beer Works in Sep 2018 and as a beer fan it was great! The 2pm tour was nice and very informative. We got to see and smell the different ingredients. Later, we went inside the small production area and all throughout the stay...More

Thank you for the fantastic review! Hope you enjoyed your time in Wanaka and will hopefully see you again. Cheers!
The tastings and public tour entrance was located inside the toy museum cafe, which was a very confusing location! Beers were interesting, but nothing to write home about. Great if you want to do a beer tour, or you’re looking for something to do while...More

Thank you for your review and for visiting us at the brewery.

After finding the beerworks at the Wanaka airport inside the Transport and Toy Museum (a little confusing) tried their beer paddle of 5 craft beers ($10) and enjoyed 3 out of 5. The service was friendly.
Tour was personable and informative. David did a great job keeping it low key and informative. Tour was about 45 minutes and included samples at the end. Great way to spend an hour in the middle of the day.

Thank you for your review Chris, we are always happy to hear that it was both informative and fun!
Visited here to do a tasting and had a great time. The bartender/brewer was so knowledgeable about the beer and you could tell he was really passionate about it. He answered all our questions. The tasting is for 6 beers (they had 9 to try)...More

We drink beer regularly and enjoy bit thoroughly. But we never really looked into how is it made at a microbrewery level. Beerworks offers a incredibly informative tour that will truly leave you in love with local micro breweries. The tasters at the end are...More
