South Island sessionDunedin, New Zealand

It's an old-fashioned Dunedin beer house that specialises in traditional ales. Speight’s Brewery is a South Island institution, and the brewers still use the same equipment and techniques today as their predecessors back in the 1940s.

Go on a tour and you'll get to see, smell, touch and taste the ingredients that go into Speight’s finest. Understand the beauty of the bumps and gurgles of the hand-operated machinery and hear why the brewers prefer this classic equipment to more modern gear. There’s a 30-minute session at the end of the tour where you can master the art of pouring – and drink your failures.


A 90-minute tour of Speight’s Brewery costs about US$20. Visitors can also book a brewery tour with a two-course lunch or dinner package, starting from about US$40.
