Brewery Tour & Tasting Session

PLEASE NOTE (As OF 29/09/14)

We are doing some tinkering at the brewery to give us more room to expand, yeeha!

This means that we need to halt all brewery tours from Monday 29th September 2014for health & safety measures.

We are sorry for any inconvenience. If you have booked a tour or purchased a tour gift certificate, then please contact for a refund. We will keep you posted on when the tours are back on.



You must be 18+ years of age to take part in the Tuatara Tour & Tasting Session. 

You must wear closed footwear to meet our heath and safety requirements. No jandals, sandals, open-toed shoes, or bare feet will be permitted to enter the brewery.

About the Tour

If you’ve ever suspected that beer is more interesting than the grown ups told you, you’re right. Tuatara is one of the leading lights of New Zealand’s world-beating craft beer scene and this is the perfect chance to peek behind the curtain and find out where all those head-spinning flavours come from.

Here’s what you’ll see and do on a reconnaissance of their brand new secret headquarters in Paraparaumu, just up the road from Wellington, Craft Beer Capital:

  • Go on a tour led by either a production manager or master brewer.
  • Get a comprehensive introduction to the brewing process
  • Get a close-up look at the raw ingredients
  • See brews getting put together from grain to beer
  • Try a selection of Tuatara brews with tasting tips from your all-knowing Zen beer master

It’s a must for the beer fanatic or just the beer curious. The 45 minute experience includes the tour and four tastes, but you’re very welcome to further burnish your awareness by staying on for a bite and a drink afterwards. Only 20 fortunate individuals can do the tour at a time, so booking is essential if you want to secure a spot. Tours are strictly R18.
