Unusual place – reminded me of an moonshine still in Tennessee – small rustic barn type building with three energetic workers toiling over vats in the various stages of brewing beer – there was a tour on offer at NZD$15.00 which we passed – you...More

My wife and I popped in for a quiet beer and to hear a few yarns.........so worth it. The beer is top notch and we got a really simple overview of the brewing process and story behind the brewery. Must do.

Amazing little brewery on Raro. The owner was full of information not just about the beer but the beer market and industry. I don't even drink beer and would definitely go back!

Very small brewer & team gives an excellent overview of their brewery, beer, & rarotonga beer market. Very passionate about beer and craft beer. Great to talk to about all things beer. Brilliant beer, highly recommend the IPA.

Informative and learnt a lot about beer making. $15 entry fee covered the three generous tasters. Two out of three of the tasters were very sweet (one a strawberry and other salted caramel) which I liked but my partner wasn’t so keen on. Would recommend,...More

As previously reviewed, this is not a brewery tour as such, but a really interesting insight into the brewing techniques and the beers they produce. Very insightful and a far cry from how the big brewers would do things - highly rated!!
