With over 20 locally brewed beers you can't go wrong. Brewed in Nelson they have a full range of craft beers, in a local pub environment. NICE

An array of this Nelson Brewers products for sampling in real pub like surroundings. Out of central area that caters for the evening trade. It makes for a good place for an afternoon beer after visiting the adjacent Botanic Gardens. Highly recommended.

Unfortunately the atmosphere isn't as nice here since new management took over. Not as warm and friendly, and little things have changed for the worse. Went there with friends for a birthday this weekend and although we had a good group buying plenty of drinks, had to leave half an hour or more before closing so they could clear the... More

Visited while in the area for a couple of days. This is not a brew piub, it is a craft beer pub that only sells the products from one brewery, but is not owned by that brewery. The brewery is the Sprig and Fern in Nelson. My partner and I shared two flights of beer (samplers) - 10 beers between... More

Nice to have some great tasting beer in a proper pint glass for around $8.50 each Only had a predinner pint - there are a few good restaurants on the same street - so go here and have a pint and then wonder down the road for a meal out.

Stopped in for a late lunch; tasty steak and stout pie with twisty fries, with a lovely glass of mulled wine. Just the ticket on a foul Wellington Sunday. A cosy and somewhat quirky establishment with friendly staff. Siggys food is good, and lots of beer on tap!

Our first visit here and after viewing the web site I had fairly high expectations, the premises were fantastic and there was a good feel to the place, the service was good and the bartender had a good knowledge of the craft beers on offer, it was hard to make a decision, eventually choosing a Pilsner (being a craft beer...

The sprig and fern is a welcoming craft brewery/pub with an excellent choice of beverages and a fantastic premises. The food and service are both highly rated but the building, atmosphere and selection of board games really make it special. Overall a fantastic place for a weekend tipple :)

First time visiting as part of Hopstock and it's completely lovely and cosy. Will try and come back soon. The Harvest Pilsner was delicious!
