Scott's was great - really cool atmosphere with the restaurant with seating inside in the brewery (big vats and all) or plenty of outside seating too. They had 5+ beers on tap, and offered tasting paddles too. And they had a gluten free bottled beer (and a very low gluten tap beer). My wife with Coeliac's was able to finally... More

Great place to learn about the history as well as try the aged whiskey and look at all the interesting memorabilia around the shop. Been there before and would go again

Great little spot for lunch with friends. Amazing specials, and delicious thin crust home baked pizza. Great house beer options, with flight tasters to try and find what you like best, but they are all pretty good. Good service, not having to wait long at all. What a lovely way to while away a sunny hour or two in Oamaru!

If you like craft beer then this is the place to go in Oamaru. Even if you don't like craft beer then you need to visit as this is the place (wines etc also available). Great location in the old town, great beers, and modern atmosphere especially outside in the beer garden. Beer prices stock standard for craft beer $8.5-12.5.... More

Lovely modern space. Pizzas looked amazing though we didn't stay to order. Slightly disappointed with the beer but we have very eclectic tastes.

A funky brewery where you can sit and watch locasl and tourist who come down to see the bay. A good selection of locally brewed beer. There is also pizza and cheese platters that you can order, which go prefect with the beer.

Scott's Brewery, at the south end of Oamaru's Historic Precinct, is a fun place to enjoy a casual lunch.Eight tantalising choices of stone baked pizzas are available, either to enjoy outside or indoors, along with an equally tantalising choice of craft beers naturally brewed on site. Alternatively, pizzas and beer can be taken away from the time of order. One... More

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!
