The Monteith's Brewery tour starts out in the Beertopia Room which houses our very own Monteith's Museum. Here you'll get an introduction into the heritage and rich stories of the origins of Monteith's, starting in 1868 right here on the West Coast. You'll then move into the brewery to see, touch, taste (if you're up for it) and smell the New Zealand grown ingredients we use to make our range of craft beers here in our state of the art, modern brewery.
Take your time to walk through the brew house and packaging house as your expert guide talks you through the process involved with crafting our 150 year old beer recipes as well as the modern additions. You will receive video, visual and verbal prompts throughout the tour to help you to understand the various techniques and technical terms our brewers are so familiar with.
You will no doubt by this point be ready to taste the delicious range of beers and ciders right at the source. Good news for you - your tour will finish with a lesson on how to achieve the 'perfect pour'. For those over 18, you'll pour yourself your very own tap beer from our 'Brewers Table' to enjoy.
For the $25NZD brewery tour, your package includes a West Coast Passport full of vouchers and discounts to enjoy including 20% off vouchers to the key activities on the West Coast including Franz Josef Glacier Guides and Hot Pools, West Coast Scenic Water Tours, Shanty Town Heritage Park, West Coast Wildlife Centre and Treetop Walks.
With the passport you will also get you three tap beers (200ml) at our modern bar, as well as a complimentary beverage at various Monteith's Brewery bars, and a number of discount offers in our retail shop so you can take something home to remember your visit to our brewery establishment here in Greymouth.
The 'Beer Free' Tour excludes the Passport of vouchers for beers and discounts, and this is suitable for participants under the age of 18 or who do not wish to consume beer. Participants 5-12 years of age are $10 and Infants (under 5 years of age) are free.
Don't miss out on your very own Personalised Monteith's beer bottle, with your name on it (or the name of that friend or family member you want to give a special surprise). Add this to any package for only $10NZD (RRP $15NZD).
