Really enjoyed our visit to the brewery! The 'tour' is more of a presentation (no walking involved) but was very informative and interesting and we got to sample three beers. The brewer was really nice and answered lots of our questions about beer in the South Pacific as well as the brewing process. You could buy t-shirts and hats at the end of the tour, as well as beer to go. If you bring some local beer from wherever you are visiting from, you can do a trade (wish we'd known that!). If you don't do the tour, you can buy a growler to go (no taproom to drink in).

What a great tour! Lasted just over an hour, the owner introduced us to the small staff and took us through a pretty extensive introduction to the brewing process. Very easy to understand, down to earth people who just want good beer. For $10 we got to taste 3 delicious brews. Owner integrated good knowledge of the process with some great chat and banter. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Raro who wants an informative, value for money hour.

We visited the brewery September 2015. You can go to see it or at that time you had to pay for the "tour". We opted not going on the tour. If you never been on a brewery tour and then do it, you will gain a lot of info about brewing in general. We opted not to do the tour and instead left there with a 2 liter of beer in a plastic bottle and a t-shirt.
