The beers are the best outside of Belgium and are on par with what I left back in The US. Ok its the only microbrewery in Blenheim but that does not take away from my partners and my opinion. This is a very biased opinion. The food is very scant but there is some on offer. But really. . .... More

The person who served us was extremely helpful in regards to the taste and origin of the beer and its ingredients We had... More

So after biking around 5 wineries, our palates needed a change of pace...it was a bit of a cycle from Renwick, but it built up our thirst and was a great way to end the day. We met some lovely locals having happy hour and enjoyed a good hour here building up our strength to do the return trip back... More

Moa is a great NZ brewery that makes terrific beers. Being from Colorado, we have high beer standards, and Moa was one of the few NZ breweries that met them! Mike was great and very knowledgable. We've made sure to pick up more Moa beer during our travels.

Great brew bar to visit in heart of wine country. Good taps and lots of great beers to purchase. Get the tasting tray if you go there too. Incredibly nice bartenders (thanks Stefan) and had a great time. They have nice outdoor bean bags and cornhole even. Sours beers are worth the buy as for well. Must go for beer... More

Very hard to find much variety of Moa beer in retailers. This opportunity to sample different beers was great and a cheese board to die for.

Being one of the only breweries that we saw in a sea of wineries, the beer tasting made a welcome change from constant wine. Whilst it wasn't too bad, it seemed a little run down compared to the amazing wineries (such as cloudy bay next door). The beer was quite good though, so overall it's worth dropping in if you...

Our experience here was pretty average, my husband was quite keen to do some tastings, we were the only people at the brewery yet felt rushed and the patron did not take the time to explain the different beers, we bought a box of 12 different beers for $35 which was quite a good deal and most of them tasted...
