In the tiny settlement of Mangatainoka, a 50 minute drive north of Masterton, you'll find the Tui Brewery, with its historic brick tower, cafe, quirky shop and yes… top notch Tui beer only available at the brewery.
It's the perfect stop for a bite to eat, order a tasting tray of the Tui beers then sit back and soak up the fun atmosphere, museum, great food and grounds.
Check out their brand new brewery with a personalised guided tour.
Trace the brewery's 125 year history, see iconic landmarks and walk through the new state of the art brewery. Finish up in the brewery bar tasting three beers of your choice from the tap. Receive a Mangatainoka Passport which includes complimentary Tui beer at local hotels as well as discounts at other tourism hotspots in the Tararua and Wairarapa regions. Please note you need to wear covered shoes on the tour.
Tours are approximately 40 minutes and run daily at 11.30am and 2.30pm – please book for groups over 10 people.
We sent our in-house bloke David to try the tour! Check out what he got up to.
