Speights Brewery Tour

For over 135 years Speight’s have been brewing a range of beers from the original Rattray Street Brewery here in Dunedin.

A fully guided tour through the Brewery gives you a chance to learn about their extensive history before learning about their brewing process and how they became a legend not only in the south but right around the country. The Brewery was recently upgraded so you get a chance to see the old and the new.

The tour finishes in the Brewery bar where you will get a chance to taste and appreciate six samples of Speight’s finest beers. At the end of the tour if you are feeling a bit peckish make sure to pop next door to the Speight’s Ale House, situated within the Brewery buildings, where they have great Southern fare and all of the Speight’s range of beer fresh from the tap.

    A must do, when in Dunedin.

    I enjoyed this tour.The guide was a bundle of knowledge, regarding the history of this site and the importance of this brewery to the country. There are 225 stairs, most of which are negotiated on the down.A tutorial on how the beer is made, was given as we moved through the tour. Ending in a free sampling of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. This tour is quite expensive, but not to be missed.

    Speight's Brewery Tour is a Must Do

    The tour was friendly,informative and fun. This tour is a must do if you are ever in Dunedin. The History and Future Plans are interesting and it makes you feel like part of the story. After you get to have a decent sized taste of all the great beers that Speight's has to offer in the friendliest bar with the best atmosphere you could imagine, watching old movies and talking to the whistling, happy tour guide was a bonus. I would recommend this tour to anyone!!

    Far more than Beer

    If a couple of beer samples at the end of your other brewery tour was the highlight then ger set for a whole new level. A lesson in history a vibrant and enlightening guide . This is a fantastic opportunity to see history forged with modern Technology. The beer is great too!!!
