A great pit stop coming from Abel Tasman. Sort of a nano-brewery and after tasting I recommend taking some "growlers" (in NZ it's plastic liter bottles) to go.

Tiny little boutique brewery on the way to the fabulous Golden Bay. Stop by and get a rigger of deliciously hoppy goodness.

I think I was hoping for a bar or more of a display. The beers were nice and the service was excellent. The frontage makes it look like an old school petrol station. Maybe more sitting or tasting racks? Something is missing...

You can stop and taste each of the beers and ciders and choose one to suit your taste. I love the cider made from local apples and buy it all the time.

I am not sure if the very expensive cider is worth its price tag, but as for the rest: very good high quality brewery worth visiting.

Good, real home-made ales/lagers etc, have a taste and find your own favourite. Is a local but even so I wouldn't recommend if it it was no good, and the owner/brewer is a mad dentist and into flinging objects in slings.
