Stopped for lunch. Enjoyed the pulled pork nachos really delicious with a glass of local brew out on the deck overlooking lawn. Couldn't resist visiting again when also enjoyed sausages and saukraut. Coffee and sweet treats available. Beer tasting with friendly and knowledgable staff. Relaxing, convivial environment to take a break and stock up on excellent brew.

Stopped off on the way past to get some beer but could not find one that was really good. It took ages to find anyone and in the end I left completely empty handed which is unlike me when it comes to beer. There are many other better options out there.

Pulled in mid afternoon to have a tasting and found the place v busy. A tasting paddle each ($15pp) and about 8 to choose from, perhaps more. Very reasonable we thought. Pulled pork nachos - yum! Ended up chatting at some length with Mike on different aspects of NZ craft beer - v interesting. Nice place, friendly staff. Well worth... More

Traveling north this unexpected stop with the children proved perfect , plenty of grounds to play and varied menu for both children and adults and particularly niece coffee. Highly recommend the selection of real ale's all brewed on site

One person left to run the shop and tasting bar. Bad idea. No idea how to make a simple coffee. Very disappointed. Felt conned by the promise of something special. I suppose the place is a bit hit and miss!

Came after the cliff walk late in the afternoon good place to try some of the craft beers. Super friendly staff happy to chat about the different beers. They where still cleaning up after their October festival some 1500 people on the previous weekend. Good if you are on your way to New Plymouth as it is about 30 km... More

We stopped in here on a drive up the Coast to Awakino. It was a gorgeous sunny day and we enjoyed a refreshing beverage on the deck outside. The young man who served us was very friendly but had just started work a couple of days earlier so had a little to learn about the products he was serving. All... More

On a recent trip to Taranaki a friend mentioned he had been to Mike's Organic Brewery and being beer lovers we decided it was a must on our places to visit. In beautiful surrounds we discovered a great range of beers, so finding one to suit our differing tastes guaranteed and we got to try before we 'buyed'. The guy... More

Stopped in for a quick look on the way home from visiting and family and popped on for a quick drink, the sample rack is excellent and really gives you the chance to taste a bit of everything. We didn't get food but what we saw coming out of the kitchen looked very appetising. I absolutely feel in love with... More
