Brew Stop

Tours of Speight’s Brewery Heritage Centre, 200 Rattray St. (tel. 03/477-7697;, cost NZ$23 for adults, NZ$10 for children ages 5 to 15, and NZ$48 for a family. For that you’ll spend about 1 1/2 hours looking at the brewing processes of this "Pride of the South," with tastings and a sample of the product at the end. Speight’s has been favoring us with its fine ales since 1876, and the tour gives a good overview of the industry. Make sure you see the stunning Otago video presentation at the end—it made my little Kiwi heart burst with pride. Tours are limited to 25 people and run daily at 10am, 11:45am, and 2pm, with an extra 7pm tour Monday through Thursday. Ask about a combo deal that includes a Cadbury World chocolate factory tour.
