Welcome to monteith’s brewery

Here at Monteith’s the spirit of manaakitanga is strong. We welcome our guests like long lost friends; we share our stories (and our time) freely, and when it’s time for ya’ll to hit the road again, we like to think you take a little piece of our place and our spirit with you. It’s the West Coast way.


Located in Greymouth on the West Coast, Monteith’s Brewery is the original home of craft brewing in New Zealand and a recognised Qualmark Gold visitor experience. This is thanks to our great hospitality, a fabulous menu, prompt service, and wonderful stories – not to mention our selection of award-winning beers and ciders.

We invite you to come and enjoy something from our locally inspired menu, explore our range of craft beers and ciders with a tasting tray, enjoy our free museum, or shop all things Monteiths.

While you’re here, take a guided 45-minute brewery experience tour to learn about all the wonders of craft beer. You’ll get to pour your own beer from the tap, get some great discounts on great West Coast activities, and take home a 6 pack of your favourites – all included in the tour price. Tours take place 7 days a week at 4pm.

Yummy food, the best fries I have had, the right about of crunch! Lovely service and the staff banter with you. Highly recommend the tour – Alice Cochrane, Google Business, 5 stars

Glad we had the time to do the Monteith’s Brewery tour. It was fun and informative. Nice set up with merchandise, restaurant and bar area. If you have time it is worth a break from driving and scenery to grab 5 mins to relax with a pint. – Kirrie706, Trip Advisor, 5 Stars

Really enjoyed the tour -our guide was a local with family ties to the area and it made the history of the brewery even more interesting. Good value for money and the food at the restaurant is both generous and tasty. Would definitely recommend! – SuziWarner, Trip Advisor, 5 stars
