Tour Details

The Bay of Islands is home to some of New Zealand’s finest Craft Breweries. This tour will take you to the three of the best.

The cost is $135 per person, this includes all tastings and food.

We will pick you up at either the Paihia I-site (1.30pm) or the Kerikeri BP service station (1.55pm)

Our first stop is the Plough & Feather Tap Room, nestled in the historic Kerikeri Domain, this location has been in existence for over 200 years.

Here customers can sample four of the twenty locally brewed ales and lagers from their sister company, Kainui Brew Co. Kainui Brew Co was founded in 2015 in the heart of Kerikeri and has quickly risen to prominence in New Zealand, winning numerous gold, silver, and bronze medals in some of New Zealand’s most acclaimed competitions (NZ Brewer’s Guild Awards, New World Awards).

From here we move onto the Phat House Brewery in Haruru Falls.

Founded in 2015, Caroline and Rob the owners are passionate about every stage of the brewing process. Their beers are made from natural ingredients, carefully crafted, unfiltered, unpasteurised, and preservative free.

The brewery offers a wide range of beers from which customers can sample up to four different products of their choice.

Clients will also enjoy a meal of homemade pizza (gluten free and vegetarian options available) and a generous portion of French fries.

There is a spacious beer garden where customers can sit while enjoying their tastings.

Our final stop is the Craft Beer Kitchen in the heart of Paihia.

CBK Craft Bar & Kitchen have taken inspiration from various corners of the world to take you on a tasting journey around Aotearoa New Zealand, and the Pacific Rim.

With an ever changing selection of craft beers, and ciders there is something to suit everyone palates. Again customers will have the opportunity to sample four beers at their leisure while enjoying the view from the veranda.

On completion of the tour we will take customers back to their accommodation if required.
