Speights Brewery Tour

Learn about the brewery’s history and get some tips from our expert brewers on our award winning interactive and informative guided tour.

Highlights

  • Learn about Speight's extensive history and legendary status
  • Explore the brewery and the brewing process, with recently upgraded brewing equipment
  • Taste and appreciate samples of Speight’s finest beers

The Speight’s Brewery Tour is a must do for locals and visitors to Dunedin alike.

For over 141 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.

We will take you from the top of the Brewery through the various levels of this heritage site (please note that there are over 200 stairs on this tour - but don't worry, we take it slow); introducing you to some characters and core ingredients along the way. You will touch, taste and smell the key ingredients that go into our award winning beers, as fell as experiencing our diverse history.

The tour finishes in the Tasting Room where you will get a chance to taste and appreciate samples of Speight’s finest beers. We will even teach you how to pour the perfect beer - this is a great opportunity for some photographs!

Loved our Tour of the Brewery

The tour was very interesting, Graham our tour guide was so funny and made the tour a humorous one. The tasting at the end was awesome followed by shopping at the end being served by Jason who is a top bloke!

Lovely Tour

The tour was very informative. It was good since we also learned about Otago’s history and how the brewery’s growth are interrelated. The process of making beer was explained thoroughly. The beer tasting was the highlight of the tour!
