  • Had wanted to visit the Brewery as part of our NZ trip. Booked in for the tour (lead by Brodie) before sitting down to a great meal. Great atmosphere and the beers are pretty good too.  more »
  • When we first visited, then moved to Greymouth this was our favorite place to go with friends and visitors. The beer is unbelievably good. Although the food is excellent, it has always seemed overpric...  more »

  • 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.
  • We arrived at 6:30pm and the place was busy. We found a seat and ordered home made chips, pull apart loaf and steak. The food arrived quickly, was very tasty and well presented but quite pricey for pub food. The beers were great (as expected) with a good selection of wine also. The staff were friendly and efficient. The only thing we disliked was that the place closed at 8pm - on a Saturday night. This is a bit disappointing for out-of-towners.
  • Ok people, cold rainy afternoon in Greymouth, what do you do? Go to Monteith's Brewing Co. We did the tour of the Brewery, Tarn was our tour guide. We learnt about basic beer ingredients, and had a look around the production floor, all very informative. Also made better with Tarns natural charisma. The tours cost around $25, and that includes many free beers. You will drink the tour fee back. We also visited the restaurant later that night to partake in a chicken & cranberry pizza and even more drinking. Overall fun way to spend an afternoon and night. 5 stars, well done Tarn. :)
  • Best brewery I've been to in Australia or New Zealand. A must visit if you like beer and you're travelling down the west coast.
  • all round good food, with a price that reflects it. Chips were incredibly good, again with a price to match. $9 for not much more than a handful! I wouldn't order them again but I did enjoy them enough that I don't regret it as a one-off.
