  • A great stop to try some genuine kiwi craft beers. We loved the chocolate stout and the rakau hop IPA is a must to try too. And they're still independent! Thanks for a great tasting Dean  more »
  • We called in here on the way to Abel Tasman and after sampling a few beers in Nelson (hop capital of South Island) I was very impressed with the beer here. It's not your typical brewery as you can't b...  more »

  • Los of choice for a small brewery. The guy was friendly even we did no buy a lot. Nice to visit and support small brewery.
  • Great quality beers worth the stop for a tasting. And just to make it easier: tastings are free. They're also as easy as yearning with a mate at the bar of a well presented local pub. The tastings are curated by brewery staff who don't put on much of a show. This can be a little disappointing as the show behind the beer is normally why you'd visit. Never mind that though, the range available offered some mouth watering flavours. Once you get your host going on preferences for beers and their drinking in NZ, the experience should pick up. Go here for specials on Hops Federation beers and enjoy determining which one you want to take home; we recommend the American Brown Ale and the Red IPA.
  • I was a bit disappointed TBH. I love their beer and was really looking forward to trying/buying plenty of brews but I felt like I was more an inconvenience than a customer. I'm not expecting gold star service - it's still a brewery after all - but more than a one syllable response to questions might be helpful. I'd suggest they keep the American staff member out the back and let the kiwis show off their stellar hospitality instead.
  • Great brewed on premises beer
  • Delicious beer good prices. Plus samples
