About
A true icon of the South, we are the oldest continually operating Brewery in New Zealand, and the only site to have an historic Brew Floor and state of the art Brewery housed within the same location. After an extensive remodel in 2017 we are now excited to be able to offer a range of Tour packages to suit our diverse market - we can cater for groups of up to 100, as well as individual travellers and those wishing to experience a private tour. Out standard tours are 60 minutes in duration, followed by a 30 minute tasting session - we will even show you how to pour the perfect glass of Gold Medal Ale. The Speight’s Brewery is also the spiritual home of New Zealand’s biggest beer brand, attracting over 25,000 visitors per year to experience the “Pride of the South”; as one if Dunedin’s most popular tourist attractions we are looking forward to welcoming you to our iconic experience. Good on ya mate

Speights Brewery Dunedin

Our tour guide Alison gave us the best tour. Very knowledgeable about the history of Speights. Done the tour which was pretty awesome. Took heaps of snaps along the way. Then we ended with the taste testing. My husband and daughter got to try all the beers they have on tap. My youngest daughter and myself enjoyed a non alcoholic beverage that was devine. Then we went shopping and bought some clothes with a 15% discount. So an overall excellent experience. Everyone that we passed by that works at Speights Brewery were soo friendly made the night enjoyable.

Brewery Tour for Family with Teenagers
Apr 2021 • Family
We had an excellent tour of the Brewery with Alison with our two teenage kids. We all loved the mix of history and science! We found out a lot about the history of Dunedin as well as the brewing process.
Alison was a great tour guide, she kept us interested all the way around. The tasting at the end was a great way to finish. Thanks for a fun afternoon.

Fun tour of a local legend

Took a tour of the brewery while attending the Uni open days recently. Was interesting to hear about how this much loved brand came about and the stories of Dunedin back in the pioneering days, the taproom was a highlight and I'm sure the kids will enjoy a few of these brews while they are at Uni.

Enjoyed the tour
May 2021
It's not a working brewery tour, is more of a history/museum tour. We were slightly disappointed but we still enjoyed it.
