I went there with an activity from Stray Travel. We had to drink our beers in plastic cups, which is really weird for a brewery I think. We had to drink our beers very quickly because the guys were in a hurry. We also got a BBQ, but it was not that much. We only got two sausages, some onions... More

Hi ISchouten1991. We're sorry you didn't have a fun time. Since we give you a tour of the entire brewery including the actual production areas, Health & Safety doesn't allow us to use glass cups in case of breakage. We don't force you to drink the samples, but if you do want to try them all, it sometimes can be... More

So there's not a huge amount to do in Westport but the brewery is worth a visit. The beer is really good and the staff are friendly.

This was a perfect pitstop on our honeymoon. The owner was brilliant, super friendly, and the beers, especially the Green Fern and Miners Black, were delicious. Highly recommend.

I found this place through Stray and Jason gave us a tour of the brewery. He was super friendly and could answer all of our questions about the brewing process. The beer was awesome.

Went for a tour around the brewery with a group. We got to try 7 different beers and ciders as well as a tour on how they brew. This is a smaller brewery which makes it all the more special. The staff was great, very welcoming and passionate about what they do. Ended the tour with a small bbq of... More

Fun and informative! Got to try some nice beers too! Probably the best brewery tour I've been on and a great deal for the price. Best thing was the actual brewers guided the tour instead of someone reading off a piece of paper. Definitely recommend checking this place out.

Manager did not seem that enthusiastic to share his knowledge, disappearing back into his office. we purchased a case of beer, which we really enjoyed. a small micro brewery, well worth the look.

As a local I am a regular customer, my favourite tipple being the Black Beer however I also try all their other beers and have found that most are of excellent quality and flavour. They have recently released a Pilsener and I find this also one of my favourites. I have friends in Nelson and every time we go there... More

Excelent micro brewery with a fine selection of tasty beers to choose from. We done the brewery tour and had a little bbq too. Prices of the beers are very reasonable. Keep up the good work guys
