We went there looking for the brewery and discovered this amazing, authentic German beer garden & restaurant. Great collection of local & german beers. I had the bratwurst, which came with saur kraut, pickeld red cabbage, potatoes plus a really good red wine reduction sauce. I hope to visit at least once more during my stay in Blenheim.

We were part of a group which went to Dodson Street for the first time a few weeks ago on a friend's recommendation, having lunch in the garden on Sunday and then staying on to listen to the music. Great atmosphere, exceptional pizzas, friendly host and masses of beers to test. We will definitely be back!

We are new to Blenheim and needed a place to go celebrate with our daughter and family from Timaru. Our young real estate agent recommended Dodson St and he was right! Essentially a German style restaurant with great food and atmosphere. And some beautiful pizzas too with tasters of many different beers if you want.

In Blenheim we stayed at the Top 10 Holiday park. The receptionist advised us the Italian Restaurant Rocco's or the Dodson Street Biergarten & Restaurant, the former Ye Olde Malthouse.

Both restaurants are at short walking distance from the caravan park. We went for the German restaurant and we weren't disappointed.

The German owner Herr Dietmar is welcoming, friendly and knows about the beers he has on offer. He has 24 different draught beers and in summer he even has 28 beers on tap.

Moreover the restaurant serves good food and has true German dishes like 'Rostbraten' on the menu. Recommended!

We went to The Beer Garden just for the Renaissance's beers as we've been going to the Beervanas in Wellington for several years now and became huge fans of their range of beers. We were not disappointed. It's a lovely establishment with a nice sheltered area in the garden, very efficient friendly service, huge selections of beers and great selections of pizzas - the lamb and capsicum one was very delicious. The combo of 5 beer samples and a pizza is a great value for money. Endeavour, Discovery and Robust Porter beers are a must to try. We drove from the rain-drenched West Coast that day to find that Blenheim was basking in a beautiful sun-shine on Easter Saturday. We spent a delightful afternoon sitting in the Beer garden and enjoying food and beers hugely. Will be back. And look forward to see Renaissance's beer team again at the Beervana in August!
