Important InfoInfo
Start your beer-tasting tour at Brother Brewery, where you’ll meet your guide in the afternoon. Then hit the streets, taking in the architecture and history of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

You’ll stroll approximately 1 mile (1.5 km) through the city center to three local watering holes, from historical brewpubs and bars to newer breweries. En route, hear from your knowledgeable guide about Auckland’s brewing industry, which dates back almost as far as the city’s foundation.

Learn about the resurgence of boutique and craft brewers as you enjoy four to six beer tastings, accompanied by potato chips, at each location. As you sip, discover a variety of flavor profiles and brewing techniques. At the final venue, your brews are paired with food tasting, the equivalent of a light meal.

We enjoyed meeting Elle and accompanying her to several craft beer locations. She described each tasting beer and shared information about the brewery as well as general information about Auckland, which was helpful. We definitely recommend this tour.

We had the most fantastic afternoon with Chris, could not have asked for a friendlier guide, his knowledge of Auckland and the beer was great. We actually didn't want to leave to go out for dinner. Thank you for you a fantastic afternoon, we HIGHLY recommend this tour and will be booking again next time we come up. Allie and Carl.

Beer lovers paradise! I mean, who cannot love a beer tour? We walked around and drank beer! We drank about 10 different beers and at the last pub we dug into same tasty nachos. Elle was our guide she was for the foody tour as well and again, she was just a delight to talk with and discuss beer and more food! It really set us up for the next 10 days with info on drinking beer in New Zealand. For me, I tried about 40-50 different beers many in Wellington and my wife about 30. Cannot wait to go back!

My husband and I were the only ones on this tour which we were somewhat hesitant about at first, but we had a blast and it turned out to be our most fun day/night in Auckland. Our guide, Nilesh is a real G.C.! He was super fun to hang with and very knowledgeable about beer and Auckland. New Zealand style beers probably aren't our first choice, but all of the beers we had were quite tasty and well done. We were also given a good portion of tasty food at our first and last stops. Great value for the money and would definitely recommend!
