“Good beer selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

Lots of beers to sample in a small and friendly bar area. Owner was most willing to chat about everything to do with beer life and the universe without making you feel obligated to buy stuff. Also do a great stumpy style cider. There is an outdoor area to enjoy your beer on a sunny day. A great family owned business to support

“Wanaka Beer Works is a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2012

Great beer, snacks and info from the friendly owner! Really enjoyed an afternoon trying various beers with snacks as part of a $10 deal and got some to take home too! Met the owner later in Wanaka, really friendly, definitely recommend! Really knowledgable and passionate about beer! We are looking forward to next visit!

“Personal tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2012

We booked a tour and tasting through GrabOne. The owner (sorry - can't remember his name) is obviously very passionate about his beer and brewery. It was a small, personal tour with tastings at the end. We all bought a 6 pack which you could choose which beers you wanted in it. Recommended

“A must in Wanaka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2012 via mobile

Located conveniently on the same site as the National Toy and Transport museum, this is a must for beer lovers or people who want to sample some NZ ingenuity. Pete is a fantastic host, informative and really passionate about his beer. The tastes are a very generous for a small price. My husband and I loved the choice available I think we ended up staying 2 hours and trying everything! The beers are thoughtfully brewed and go down very easy. We loved the stories behind the brewing and the seasonal brews, as well as the wild apple cider they did this season. We have already placed and order online and looking forward to it meeting us at home after our holiday.

“Haven't visited, but love the beer.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2012

The Brewski is my favorite, but the Cardrona Gold was the big seller when I was waitressing. I'd love to visit the brewery sometime.
