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

Everyone says go to Scott's Brewery. Well we did and beer is great the food is ok only. The service and the poor attitude of the staff is atrocious. We were at a table of 8 including some locals and were told by the young...waiter to be quiet, after 1 bottle of wine between 2 plus a meal he would not allow us to buy another, very poor customer relations. Would visit for a beer but flag spending good money on food and staying for a whileMore

Tried a couple of beers and was very happy with one of the ales - had a couple and enjoyed them. The food was good - had the calamari (pizzas and I don't get on) and they were very good. Others had pizzas and fries...with a beer or two and all were happy - even our gluten free member was happy with his beer and food. Very busy place and obviously very popular. Definitely recommendMore

Very friendly and helpful staff, and a good line-up of beers to choose from (sadly a couple of the ones I wanted to try were unavailable but others were there to take their place). Shortish menu of non-pizza items (good pizza menu but we'd already...pizza'd ourselves out) but enough to choose from and we were well pleased with our nachos and cheese platter. I had a five beer selection (110ml glasses) and then a half of another - all good, a couple really good - the pils was superb and the pale ale very good. My wife enjoyed a cider tho again her first choice wasn't available.More

We only stopped for a beer tasting but really enjoyed the atmosphere here. When we arrived it was pretty full of people outside on a lovely sunny day so we grabbed a table that still looked out to the outdoor area... by the time we...left the inside was packed too. In the beer selection we included the hazy, double IPA etc and hands down the winner was the Shipwreck Double IPA. We checked out the menu and it looked pretty good, next time we will stay for some food.More

We loved the beer selection, and the beer menu with tasting notes made it easy to choose a beer to suit. We had pizzas and they were huge and tasty. It was busy on the Sunday night we were there, so service was a little...erratic, but nothing to complain about, we just had more beer and enjoyed the buzzy atmosphere. Even bought some take out beer and a t-shirt.More

The pizza is great... The pork ribs are magic and the chicken wings are delicious. Scott's beers and ciders are brilliant.

Highly recommended. If you're in Oamaru make a point of eating at least one meal here, you will not be disappointed. We just keep coming back, cause the pizzas and spuds are that good! The staff are cheerful and cheeky and love a banter too,...it's a definite family favourite. Great place, great team, and simply delicious cuisine.More

This is a busy place but there is a huge amount of seating both inside and outside. There is a big car park next to the brewery. There were lots of staff working and they were all on task working hard. We enjoyed drinks and...a pizza and chicken wings. Plenty of food for two of us. It had a nice atmosphere. Would recommend.More
