Marlborough is the home of just a handful of breweries, but they just happen to be ultra-premium, hand-crafted, and award winning beers and ciders! These include, Moa, Renaissance, Golden Mile, and Boom Town. We can visit a local boutique brewery, a local pub with an immense amount of history, or the largest collection of barrel aged beers in the southern Hemisphere, where there are over 20 tap beers to choose from!
Micro breweries and Craft beer tasting
