One of the fixtures of Dunedin's city centre and an icon of South Island beverages, Speight's is synonymous for “beer” in the region as its brewery has been churning out quality amber since 1876 on the same site. Far more than just a factory, the building itself is ripe with history and has been listed as a local heritage centre for many years which grants visitors an insight to the brewing techniques of the past. Touring the brewery is highly recommended and will cover all-things-beer, from how Speight's was founded, to the transition in brewing techniques of the modern age and the history of beer in general. Speight's produce a wide lineup of beers, ranging from pale ale and draughts to various microbrews, so while it helps to be a fan of beer, those who aren't massive lovers will still be able to find a drink that suits. Guests are encouraged to hop behind the tap and pour their own drinks, with six different varieties available to taste you'll have roughly half an hour to enjoy as much beer as you like included in the price until the experience concludes.
