Description

Quench your thirst and get a taste of Wellington's booming beer scene on this visit to 4 of the city's best-loved watering holes. Sample craft beers and microbrews as a head brewer leads you through a tasting, and tuck into beer-friendly fare as you sip your way from one brewery to the next.

Vibrant Wellington is packed with lively eateries, welcoming wine bars, and no shortage of places to pull up a stool for a good pint. It's no wonder that it's earned a reputation as the country's epicenter for beer, with craft breweries popping up all over the Kiwi capital.

Everything from porters to pilsners is on tap, so you have a chance to swill and swig a variety of drafts as you make your way around town with a local guide. Grab a cold one—or 2—at 4 different breweries. Stops range from sophisticated, modern facilities to a brewery in a cleverly renovated former gas station. Enjoy a chance to meet the head brewer at one of your stops. During a guided tasting, learn about traditional beer-making techniques and the innovative methods being used to draw inspired new flavors from your standard malt and hops.

All that imbibing is sure to work up an appetite, so nosh on a few shared platters of food at 2 of your stops. As you snack, you can pick up tips on how to pair different beers with food to draw out the best flavors in both. By the time your tour comes to a close, you're sure to have gained fascinating insight into each brewery's unique story—plus a good list of hot spots to continue your post-tour pub crawling.
