The historic Rochdale Cider Factory in Stoke is the home of McCashin's Brewery, where the "Craft Beer Revolution" was started in 1981 by Terry McCashin. Rochdale Cider is still brewed on site, along with Stoke Beer, Palaeo Water, Stoke Ginger Beer and Lemon Lime & Bitters. The Brewery is a ‘must visit’ while in Nelson, offering daily brewery tours, free tastings, a cafe, bottlestore and bar. You can also make a day of it by checking out the Great Taste Trail as well, a popular walking and biking trail which runs behind the Brewery. There are other craft breweries close by you can visit too.And if you’re staying a bit longer, there’s happy hour 4pm-6pm weekdays, free quiz night every Thursday, Texas Hold’em Poker on Friday nights, McCashin’s Market every Saturday from 12-4pm, live music Saturday 1-5pm and Sundays 2-6pm, family friendly atmosphere, garden bar, $10 woodfired pizzas Thurs-Sun and Sublime coffee seven days a week from 7am. And did we mention great beer?McCashin's is open from 7am seven days a week and serves locally made Sublime Coffee. The Cafe was voted Best Cafe in Nelson's 2012 Top Shop Awards. Locals say the coffee is amongst the best in Nelson. Foodwise, don't expect a full cooked meal ... but the cabinet food offerings such as the home-made sausage rolls and beef and Stoke Beer pies, wraps, bagels, cakes, muffins, salads etc. are pretty good.

Stopped here for lunch with some friends. My husband loves meat and he was loving the menu I had a really good beef brisket burger and the thick cut chips were amazing. Would definitely come again.

Their tour starts at 2 p.m., but because we took the ferry that morning, we didn’t arrive until 3 p.m. or so. No worries, because the folks at McCashin’s had been so accommodating when we contacted them months ahead of time asking for a private...More

Very disappointing visit to this brewery. Staff were rude and not interested in their job. The beer is good but that's about it. Did not order food as we left after 1 drink very unhappy.
