After finding the beerworks at the Wanaka airport inside the Transport and Toy Museum (a little confusing) tried their beer paddle of 5 craft beers ($10) and enjoyed 3 out of 5. The service was friendly.

Tour was personable and informative. David did a great job keeping it low key and informative. Tour was about 45 minutes and included samples at the end. Great way to spend an hour in the middle of the day.
