Greymouth: Monteith's Brewery Tour with Beer Tasting

1. Greymouth: Monteith's Brewery Tour with Beer Tasting

Start your tour in the Beertopia Room which houses our very own Monteith's Museum. Get an introduction to the heritage and rich stories of the origins of Monteith's, starting in 1868 on the West Coast. Move into the brewery to see, touch, taste (if you're up for it) and smell New Zealand grown ingredients used to make craft beer. Take your time to walk through the brewhouse and packaging house as your expert guide talks you through the process involved with crafting the 150-year-old beer recipes. Receive video, visual and verbal prompts throughout the tour to help you to understand the various techniques and technical terms our brewers are so familiar with. End the tour with a lesson on how to achieve the 'perfect pour'. For those over 18, pour yourself your very own tap beer, taste and enjoy.

What people are saying about Greymouth

Kate was our very friendly & knowledgeable guide on our Monteiths Brewery tour in Greymouth. It was a fascinating Tour covering the processes of beer brewing & the history of Monteiths right up to present day. Just a pity that brewing no longer takes place in Greymouth.

Fantastically knowledgeable young guide who really knew her stuff and was very chatty and pleasant. Discovered new flavours of Monteiths and was gifted a free 6 pack - highly recommended

A great tour of the local brewery. Joe the tour guide was very informative and good fun. Great selection of beer and the food was delicious

Great tour. It is the tour guide who makes the difference though. Our tour guide was exceptional.

This is a good-fun tour - and they don't skimp on the samples! Highly recommend.
