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 well 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!

Fascinating Tour of NZ's Iconic Beer Brand

This priced-right tour of Speight's historic brewery takes you through the process of brewing started by the founders in 1876. Along the way down the floors of the brewery, a little of the colourful history of Dunedin is told. The tour ends in the tasting room where the Speight's beer varieties are explained and sampled. Very enjoyable, especially if the weather is not so great outdoors! There are several tour times each day, and there's (literally) a Speight's-branded something for everyone in the souvenir shop. Note: 200 stairs to descend in 4 or 5 flights, after elevator ride to the top floor of the brewery. Also 1 or 2 short flights to ascend at times.

Excellent Tour

Excellent tour with a great guide. Allison was very informative and didn't rush us at all. The tastings at the end of the tour were very generous.

Thirst quenched

During the tour I became so thirsty, I was losing my sight, taste and all direction. Luckily at the end of tour, not only was my mind about to be blown, but also my heart as I heard these words come from our tour guide Ken “Turn left into the tasting room”. Never have I been more excited to get some tasting glasses and a chug down a few IPA’s and random speights beers. Great tour
