Review of Scotts Brewing Co

Scotts Brewing Co
Ranked #1 of 8 Quick Bites in Oamaru
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$3 - US$22
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: 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!

we always stop here and have good beer and pizza, the 1905 lager is our favourite and the meat lovers pizza and chips also.I have also enjoyed the cheese platter, with cheese sourced locally and the relishes to accompany them and the brewery having there own home made biscuits. Its a place to go in Oamaru and is nice to sit outside and watch the busy harbour area and on some weekends I know the place is buzzing with a band or some music to suit the day. definately a must go too

There are frequent free musical performances at Scotts. Check their facebook page for details. Added enjoyment to accompany their beer and pizza.

We had lunch at Scott's along with a beer. Nice to have a ginger beer option for children and non-drinkers. The pizza was very nice (we had the greek with added pepperoni)

Not poor, not exceptional, just nothing to get excited about as regards their vegan and vegetarian pizzas with pretty scant toppings and flavour.

The staff however were very nice and helpful and cheery.

The highlight was coming out afterwards and hearing, then seeing the odd blue penguin waddling up the street, looking for a mate. But probably not a vegan pizza. ; )

This is a lovely little brewery, situated on the edge of Oamaru’s main area, very near the Blue Penguin Colony and harbour. It was a hot day, so I enjoyed the picnic courtyard area, which was brimming with families and other travellers who were willing to chat.

Drinks: I did the taster flight of their many delightful beers (and one cider!) All of them were pretty good.

Food: The food was also good - I tried a pizza with chicken and blue cheese, and it absolutely hit the spot.

Pro tip (for non-designated drivers): Once you’re done your beer tasting, go across the street and do a NZ whiskey tasting.
