The biggest problem is no parking. Be prepared to walk to the brewery. The other problem and it’s not the staffs fault very hard to understand guide (who was doing a great job) because he had to wear a mask

Something very different. Perhaps gift shop is a bit expensive though…. Tour well run and interesting, beer tasting was great! Tried some beers we don’t get out in the bottle shops and didn’t know existed from up here in the North Island
