  • This place is worth the pit stop. The beer was good as well as the cider and you can't beat the food. We were able to try the pizza and lamb burger as well as the fries. Both items were fresh and well made. The space has the modern brewery atmosphere but is still inviting. It is an easy place to spend a few hours of downtime.
  • Great atmosphere and brilliant beer battered chips! The selection of beers are great. Brewery tour was good-ish. Appreciate the history lesson and how to pour a beer but was hoping for more about the brewing process. But you get a voucher book when you go on the tour that gives you 3 200ml beers and another beer at another location so all in all, it works out really cheap to go on the tour so worth going!
  • The brewery tour and the beer are excellent. The food was a bit disappointing. Had the baby back ribs which had nothing to do with baby back ribs that I'm used from Europe or the USA. Very large ribs with more bones than meat. Meat was dry and overcooked. BBQ sauce was good though. Can only recommend the fries.
  • Small but perfectly formed brewery - we visited at the end of Autumn / beginning of winter so the place was fairly quiet. We did the paid tour and tasting which was interesting and because we were the only people on the tour ended up being allowed to help the Master Brewer add the hops to his latest batch he was making that evening. The tasting selection is good - you get 5 small glasses and can choose from the range of beers on tap, we also ordered some food to go with this which was tasty. You also get to pull a pint or two as part of the tour (and drink it). There's a great fireplace with sofas in the front lobby / bar area so we stayed on for a couple more drinks before wandering back to the hotel. Staff were all very friendly as to be expected in NZ! Definitely recommend stopping by this place.
  • MONTEITH'S BREWERY LEAVES BITTER TASTE Partner and I stopped in on our travels around New Zealand. Had loved Monteith's beers until we stopped in a couple months back. Ordered from the bald bloke behind the bar, he asked if I had tried the beer. I said I hadn't but that I had been really enjoying it and was looking forward to getting it back home too. For some reason he took offence to this, got very weird standoffish and threw a few awkward insults our way. Just trying to pay a man a compliment on his beer! Dude needs to chill out. Safe to say I haven't had a sip of Monteith's since.
