I really enjoyed the time spent here. Visit and explaination of brewing process were interesting. And beer tasting was the climax of the day but food was not bad either. I didn't plan to stay that long here and now have to extend my stay in Greymouth. 맥주 맛있어요~ 북미 website 에서 할인 있어.

After a chat with the staff I opted to get the bottled beer that is not exported, but the beer tasting paddles are good value. I had a Velvet stout which was sensational and not far behind was the barrel aged porter. On recommendation I had the venison sliders which where also amazing and complimented the dark beers wonderfully.

Although Monteith's brewery has remodeled in the past few years to a fancier warehouse-style layout, the authentic atmosphere hasn't changed. They were one of, if not the first, "craft" brewer in NZ. The staff there are still locals, hilarious and so nice. Take a brewery tour or just hang out by the roaring open fire. Good pizza and beer-battered fries... More

Really enjoyed our tour with Brad! Learned a lot about the process as well and had some great beer at the end of it. Did the Bookme deal, which included 3 beers (330 ml I think) and some other good vouchers and at the end of the tour you get to pour your own beer, so 4 beers total. After... More

We visited Monteith's Brewery for lunch. The building is fantastic & there's a great atmosphere, with plenty of space & lots of people in for a drink, lunch or a tour. The staff were friendly & efficient. The food was good, even though we felt that some of the portions were too small.

Well, what a fab trip! The tour guide was amazing. Knew everything about beer and kegs and hops and....just great! A worthwhile trip and not over priced. Get the tasting rack when you finish...the white IPA is a must!

Try most of the food on the menu, most of them were delicious but the whole experience in here was completely ruined by their service and attitude. Very disappointed on their service, since it is such a significant place of Greymouth. Can't believe that their front of house staff don't have any standard. One of them was too busy sitting...

We took the tour, same typical tour as any other brewery. History of the company was interesting. Plenty of appetizers to cover from, pizza the only option for a full meal.
