Emerson's Brewery


Over the past 25 years Emerson's Brewery have been searching for the elusive Holy Ale, now Emerson's has a new spiritual home to pursue our quest. Emerson's is about sharing, so get a group together or join one of our two daily 70 minute guided tours through out brand new Brewery and Taproom. The tour will take you through a little bit of history of how Emerson's has been a pioneering force in the development of craft brewing in New Zealand. You will then be taken through the brewery, learning about all the aspects of the Emerson's Brewing process, from milling the malt to packing the finished product. There will be change to get tour hands a little dirty in the Emerson's workshop, our 1200L Pilot Brewery incorporated into the middle of our Taproom. The tour finishes with a delightful sensory experience sampling six of our famous beers. If you can bear to tea yourself away, stay on, sit down and enjoy a fantastic meal, and atmosphere that won't easily be forgotten.
