My husband loved the wide range of beers and had a tasting rack. I enjoyed a nice glass of merlot. We had a tasty meat pizza and although the food service was a little slow, we really enjoyed the evening.

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!

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...More

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.
