Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed the food quality and friendly hospitality we received with our family and friends. Top marks. We will be back and recommend you to others.

Thanks. I think this was meant for KuKu Restaurant. They serve our beer in Brewtown, but we don't have anything to do with how it is run or operated. I'll pass on the kind words.

Very friendly service. Our large family group got very good service after getting treated appallingly at Brew Town. If I ever go out to Brew Town again I will only come here. We felt much more appreciated. Thanks for saving our day guys 👍

There is nothing outstanding to want you to go out of the way to visit. Food was ok but took a long time to arrive. Beer tasting was also average, 1/2 were ok the others not my taste. Clean and comfortable and surprisingly lots of toys for preschoolers. This is in a location of other boutique breweries so maybe a pint and move on.

This review is for KuKu Restaurant which is a venue where our beer is poured, but where we have no control of the management or running of this business.

Very friendly and super helpful every time I visit. So much to choose from. Love their advent calendar of a bottle of beer, hope they do it again this year.

We came here for a drink after being at Panhead. There were only four beers on tap, and the interior looked/felt like a generic highway cafe. Not the vibe we were looking for.

Not an organized tour, just an impromptu visit with some friends to taste some beers. Showed some interest in the beers and the brewery and were rewarded with fantastic service and really insightful conversation. Oh, and the beer was wonderful. A pleasure to meet people passionate about their craft.

We had an excellent in-depth tour with co-owner Natasha of this state-of-the-art facility. I was especially impressed by their reuse/reduce/recycle philosophy, from sending their used mash to farms as cattle feed, recycling their steam, reusing barrels, corn-based tasting cups, and more. They paid a great deal of attention to creating a low carbon footprint while brewing some fantastic beers. We tasted a seaweed ale (my first), coconut porter, IPAs, sours, pilsner, and various other types of ales--the whole tap wall. This is a takeaway taproom, so bring a growler or two and prepare to enjoy.

Friendly staff, informative and entertaining brewery tour with fabulous tastings.
We spent a lovely afternoon here...we were in a group of 7...we loved the tastings so much we bought all the beers we didn't sample and continued the beer tasting back at our accommodation. Loved the various flavours and art work.

Welcoming brewery shop with many interesting and well made beers on tap, such as the excellent Belgian quadrupel. Much more to my liking than some other Hutt valley breweries!
Growlers and a great bottle fridge for take away.
It's not a brewery tap or tasting room though which it's a shame. It had a good vibe about it and would be a great place to stop and have a beer or two, or a tasting tray.

Stopped by this brewery to grab some beer for a camping trip and were treated to a surprise tour and education from the owner. Natasha took us to the back and walked us through their history and their brewing process and then led a tasting. The experience was great and the beer was even better! I really appreciate that they stay local as often as possible and leverage local restaurants for ingredients. Stop by for the beer and ask for a tour if you have the time. The coconut porter is a must!
