“Great beer!”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

This is just up the road from me so always nice to have a brewery on your doorstep. Very friendly staff/owners and a good choice of beers and cider. You can taste for free if you are going to buy, or you can pay for tastings. Definitely worth a stop to buy local brews and support the local community.

“Stop in for a beer”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

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.

“free tastings!”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

a local brewery in the middle of beautiful riwaka
and the beer here is amazing and extremly original,
suprisingly a wide range of different products to sample
the owners are very passionate and full of knowledge they readily pass on to you,
free tastings are ample
and the pricing is just right
yum

“Home of the Hoppy Beer”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

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

“Nice beer - needs a bar”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

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...
