This tour is so overpriced for what it is. For a family of four (including 2 young children) it cost $110. The tour involved a brief history of the brewery founders and brewing process, a self guided walk around a non operating brewery, watching a video (which was playing in the restaurant area and could be viewed at no cost) and sampling two beers which we were then asked to fill out tasting notes on for market research. The only redeeming feature is the take home six pack. I would suggest saving your money and just go to the gift store and buy the mixed six pack if you want one and watch the video while having a beer sampler in the restaurant.

Six of us (three couples) went for dinner last night and all of us very impressed.
The food, drinks & service was 5 star.
If visiting Greymouth I highly recommend trying this establishment.
We are going back today for the brewery tour.

Popped in for lunch and the Brewery Tour.
Lunch was very nice, the Tour, not so much.
The brewery is no longer working as it's been sold to DB in Auckland.
So all we saw were the left over steel tanks. Our host was very knowledgeable of the brewing process and the grains involved.
Coming away with a 6 pack of beers was I felt a consolation for the lack of a working site.

The food and beer were Ok but the service is appalling, our dining plates were never cleared and in the end we just paid and left, the serving staff were quick to clear tables after people left but were otherwise disinterested. Won’t be back.

Good Beer but staff very inattentive, did not give you a warm welcome or a overview of the beer just wanted to serve . Nothing different on the menu typical pub food and a little pricey.

You ask politely for thendesert menu it arrives, you make.your choice only to be told, we have run out of that. When, ohna few days ago. So back to second choice. Grrr It's a simple thing to advise up front and avoid the disappointment. Shows a lack.of training, lack of interest and a lack of initiative

We didn’t do the tour, just came in for a drink and food. Delicious burgers and fries. Had a tasting paddle too. Nice outdoor courtyard and friendly helpful staff.
