I had the Meat Lovers pizza with a pint of Pale Ale. The pizza was huge, but very delicious. The beer was very good also. When Oamaru, I would recommend a visit to Scotts Brewery.

My wife and I visited Scotts this evening. A great place to drink and have a pizza. We had the Apriscotta Chicken pizza which was excellent - one of the best pizzas we have ever tasted. The brewery was let down by the female bar staff - no welcome, quite unfriendly and one in particular seemed very bored. When I... More

We were here during the Jazz Festival and it was simply divine. The food, the atmosphere and music were just incredible. The locals are just the friendliest people. This was just an amazing experience. We spent half a day in this place, just relaxing and loving the atmosphere.

They make good beer and the pizzas complement them nicely. Close to the beach but also warm and comfortable on a drizzly evening in March. Moderate prices.

Scott's Brewing Co. is close to the water in Oamaru. It was a gorgeous, sunny day and everyone was out on the patio enjoying the weather. The beer was good and the pizza delicious. It was small inside, it's definitely a great weather place to go.

Very nice Brew Pub close to the waterfront in Oamaru. The main dinner items are pizzas, we had a chicken, blue cheese, and pear chutney combo which was delicious. The pizzas are a fair size and one is enough for two people with moderate appetites. We noticed that most people were ordering chips (French fries to some) with their pizzas.... More

Really nice outdoor seating deck on a nice day. Good beer. The ipa was actually pretty hoppy and well carbonated. And the pizza was quite good! Recommend the apricot chicken pizza.

We stumbled across Scott's while exploring Oamaru. The beers here were great and the pizzas are really good. We had a late lunch and we're both hungry. I thought we would need a pizza each. But the lovely lady who served us suggested sharing a pizza and the chips. This was plenty as the serve of chips was very big.... More

We came here for dinner with a large group on a Friday night. Despite being a brewery they also have a decent selection of wines, spirits and non alcoholic drinks. The pizzas are fantastic and reasonably priced. My mouth is watering just thinking about the smoked salmon & cream cheese pizza I had. They also give you pizza boxes if... 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!
