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

Absolutely amazing me and my partner were the only ones on our tour, and it was amazing we were welcomed in to the store and checked in very easy. We then started the tour and it was amazing Ron was our tour guide and it was great! He loves his job which made it even better for us! We learnt heaps about the history and was amazing to taste different beers and for a great price! Would totally recommend!

An excellent tour. Our tour guide was most informative and had a great sense of humour. The beer tasting at the end of the tour was excellent.

Ron was a fantastic guide. Funny and knowledgeable, he made the tour very much worthwhile. I would highly recommend giving this a go. The tasting at the end of the tour finished it off nicely.

The tour guide was an absolute legend. He made the tour a real authentic experience and had us laughing away too. He's a blessing for the Speights brand and for that brewery. Highly reccomend

Very knowledgeable tour guide - Ken, fully enjoyed the whole tour from the "Old Historic English Brewing Equipment" through to the "New German Gear" that's doing the business today. Thoroughly impressed with the Beer tasting at the end of the tour, but unfortunately ran out of my favorite brew "Black Magic", so I couldn't take a flagon of it home with me...hopefully pick some up next time I'm in Dunners!
