Overview

Tui HQ is an experience centre with a lot to offer. Equiped with a newly built brewery on site amongst the garden bar, conferencing and private functions facilities, a Cafe, Bar and also our Tuishop - The home of all things Tui. Come and take a tour, have a tastings and take home a personalised bottle with your name on it or just relax while the kids play out on the lush green lawn. Our special brew Henry Wagstaff is a great match with our Fish & Chips....certainly worth a visit to check out.

Great to hear you enjoyed your visit. Thanks for the great review. The souvenir glasses are such a hit aren't they but maybe next time you could upgrade the tasting tray and receive a personalised beer bottle with your name on it.

Two-thirds along the Wellington-Napier main road , a great little place to break the journey. Modest, unassuming food (burgers, fish and chips,etc) but VG value and perfect for a mid-journey break. Interesting brewery, decent shop, good beer. Don't pass it by without looking in.

Staff provided below average service, tour was not worth it. The person giving the tour knew very little about the brewery or the process, I think she was newish. Beer was good and the live music and atmosphere on the day was good.
