Very nice beer

Very hard to find much variety of Moa beer in retailers. This opportunity to sample different beers was great and a cheese board to die for.

Moa is a great NZ brewery that makes terrific beers. Being from Colorado, we have high beer standards, and Moa was one of the few NZ breweries that met them! Mike was great and very knowledgable. We've made sure to pick up more Moa beer during our travels.

Great brew bar to visit in heart of wine country. Good taps and lots of great beers to purchase. Get the tasting tray if you go there too. Incredibly nice bartenders (thanks Stefan) and had a great time. They have nice outdoor bean bags and cornhole even. Sours beers are worth the buy as for well. Must go for beer... More

Being one of the only breweries that we saw in a sea of wineries, the beer tasting made a welcome change from constant wine. Whilst it wasn't too bad, it seemed a little run down compared to the amazing wineries (such as cloudy bay next door). The beer was quite good though, so overall it's worth dropping in if you...

Our experience here was pretty average, my husband was quite keen to do some tastings, we were the only people at the brewery yet felt rushed and the patron did not take the time to explain the different beers, we bought a box of 12 different beers for $35 which was quite a good deal and most of them tasted...

Since our last visit a couple of years ago Moa have started to invest in the building and outside areas. A new courtyard area was being built and service was very good. I still think the tastings could be free but good beer all the same! Keep it up!

This was an included stop on out Hop n Grape tour (outstanding tour). We sampled many beers and one of the best ciders I have ever had. Well worth the visit,

Moa is such a great place to spend a lazy afternoon, which is what we did today. They offer a bbq to guests, which you can use free of charge. We spent a few hours eating, enjoying the great craft beer and the sunshine.

We stopped here while touring the wineries. We paid $5 for our tasting, which was your choice of 4 beers. The bar was nice and there was a large selection of their beers you could purchase to take with. They were helpful with giving information and it was an enjoyable visit.

Thank Rae1331
