Looking for delicious craft beer? You have found the right place! Coupled with a variety of really tasty food, friendly and welcoming staff and a chilled atmosphere this was by far the best spot on our Nelson Craft Beer Pub Crawl!

Anybody visiting Nelson or just passing through must drop in to The Sprig and Fern. I just popped in for a bit of grub and a pint.

We were looking for a light quick bite to end our day over a drink. The Sprig and Fern fit the bill perfectly. Good beer selection and the pizza had fresh ingredients and was very tasty.

Coming from a place that doesn't have much in the way of live music unless it's a giant stadium concert, I was stoked to find myself in the middle of a good old Kiwi Friday night pub session with a covers band at the Sprig & Fern.

Definitely worth a stop if you are a craft brew fan. They had a nice selection on tap and it was obviously a favorite for the locals too. The meat pies were decent too.

Best berry cider I've ever had!! Such a cool spot in the heart of Nelson. Cool atmosphere and great food - pork belly was to die for. Bikes on the pole was a really quirky kiwi touch!

Best beer in Nelson. They do take away and tasting boards. Try them all! Just a short walk in to the city center.

We went here for a few drinks before dinner, without our children. We loved yarning with the staff who were friendly, outgoing and from interesting places. The beer selection is really good, wine list as good and bar food very good indeed. Great place.

We went to the Sprig & Fern in Milton St. It is an awesome building with a wonderful outdoor seating area. The craft beer is very yummy - highly recommend the lemongrass beer and the ginger beer. You can order fish & chips from the shop next door, kick back and chill out.
