Located on the same site since 1876 the Speight's Brewery is under 5 minutes walk from the Octagon, the centre of Dunedin. The Speight's Brewery Tour is a must for any vistor to Dunedin. The tour takes approximately 1.5 hours (including tasting and appreciation).
On arrival at the Speight's Brewery Tour you'll take a step back in time on to the cobblestone streets, as you become a part of Speight's history which dates back to 1876.
Enjoy a one-hour tour, starting with the antiquity of beer from Babylonian times, the development of beer in New Zealand, and of course, the story of the origins of Speight's Brewery. You'll see entertaining audiovisual displays, and hands on interactive displays that will appeal to young and old alike.
From there you're off around the working brewery giving you the opportunity to see, smell, touch and taste the ingredients that make Speight's "The Pride of the South".
No tour would be complete without a visit to the Brewery Bar to sample all 3 beers, Speight's Gold Medal Ale, Speight's Distinction Ale, and Speight's Old Dark. There is also plenty of great Speight's beer gear available to purchase with some lines to the Speight's Heritage Centre - perfect for collectors.
