Description: Cassels & Sons' Brewery café restaurant at The Tannery is famed for its relaxed family friendly atmosphere, extensive menu choice and medal winning craft beers. Come and watch the wood-fired copper kettle in action, concocting some famous Cassels & Sons unique brews. Just off the main routes to Lyttelton and Sumner it is the perfect stop for a gourmet wood-fired pizza, a fresh cafe salad or a hearty breakfast.

“Dissapointed”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

After reading so many amazing reviews, and enjoying the Cassel's beer on previous occasions we where excited to be back in Christchurch with the chance to try The Brewery. Possibly we chose the wrong day to visit (Cup Day). Our lunch order came to the table quickly, the drinks a little behind. My husband had the six tasting pack (a true beer lover!) Sadly he didnt finish them all, as he found them a little over hopped - unable to enjoy the real beer (so I've been told!) He cheered up when taken to Pomeroys the next day - maybe try there instead - same beers on offer.

“Perfect for any sunny afternoon!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

The staff are friendly & know their stuff. We spent a Monday afternoon here, enjoying local brews and the beautiful sun.
It is easy enough to get to, just hop on a bus. Defently a place to visit for the experience.

“Great beer and love love the Horotane pizza”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Love this place - fab beer and have a particular love for their Horotane pizza (bacon, blue cheese and pear slices) - pizzas have the really great thin bases. Awesome social place. The beer tasters are a really good way to test drive their fabulous range of beers.
