Tried a paddle of beers to try out five varieties. I like only two but partner liked four. It was a bit disappointing to not be able to get nuts or chips to accompany the beer in the midst of the afternoon. Only restaurant items.

A great place for an afterwork drink, Saturday evening or Sunday afternoon - any time in fact! Friendly staff, food is good. Nice to sit outside either on the decking or down on the grass. Great beers too.

The pizza was good, not exceptional. A bit expensive I thought at north of $20. The cheese platter was decent but again nothing exceptional. Service, however, was friendly which is always a good thing. Once we return to Oamaru we'll try the beer and other...More

What a great place with wonderful views and helpful staff. Wise to try the tasting box of beers to get a range of what is available. The pizza was delicious even the one with the gluten free base. The atmosphere was fun and the venue...More

Scott's Brewery is obviously a favorite here in Oamaru. As tourists from California, we enjoyed the selection of beers. The smoked chicken pizza with blu cheese, mozzarella, fig and walnuts was delicious. The pepperoni pizza, however, was very bland. Seating choices are limited to outdoor...More

A 5-star tomatosoup. Maybe simple, but perfect for me. The overall ambiance can be a little better, but we enjoyed our stay there. Very kind staff! Make you feel more than welcome. Great cider and beer of course.

Really beautifully made beers sampling was expected and generous. Sitting outside in the sunshine was perfect although inside looked somewhat uninviting.

A good selection of beers that taste pretty good, good food in generous portions and a terrace and garden area with a pétanque court. What more could you want? They even have a sunscreen dispenser

We came for the beer and stayed for the pizza. The pizza is a lovely thin base so if you like a pizza pie then stay away! The wedges we're good to. I would recommend the Harbour Master. A lovely drop.

While walking around the historic precinct we came across Soctts Brewing. As I am not a beer drinker I didn't try any of the beers but my husband got to sample (free of charge) a couple of them and has found a new favourite :)...More

SCOTTS BREWING CO. OPEN 7 DAYS BREW BAR & RESTAURANT | TAKEAWAY BEER | TOURS & EVENTS | NZ WINE & SPIRITS | SUNNY DECK & BEER GARDEN You’ve earned a beer. Scotts Brewing Co. is based at the foot of Oamaru’s Victorian Harbour Precinct. Overlooking Friendly Bay, the brewery’s sheltered sunny deck and beer garden is the perfect setting for enjoying a cold one, in a true southern style! It's been a long dry spell for the region, when the elections of 1905 put a cork in commercial brewing in Oamaru, until now... Pioneering in gluten free beer from a back shed in West Auckland to an industrious and inventive production brewery in a old railways good shed building in the far south, the Scotts team have developed their craft and mastered the tricks of the trade. Inspired by the bounty of this Southern region, one brewery move later…Scotts Brewing Co. with local grain, South Island hops and Southern Alpine water is now brewing premium craft beer - strictly for your enjoyment! ... Scotts Nineteen 05 Golden Ale, is the first commercial brew made in Oamaru in over 100 years! With an ever changing range of Scotts craft beer & guest taps, a refined spirit & wine list with the best of New Zealand's regional offerings and gourmet pizza to match every inclination – Scotts Brewery is a must stop, or stay, while visiting Oamaru. The tides have turned for this drought stricken land. Scotts Brewing Co. is proud to present the former beer drinker, beer once more!
