Tui Brewery, New Zealand – Pants Required?

New Zealand gives some good brewery tours.  Now, Tui Brewery was my second tour in the country and it had a high bar to fill after the Speight’s tour I took.  It succeeded admirably.

This tour was less of a historical lesson like Speight’s and more of a fun, whimsical, tongue-in-cheek Hooters knockoff.  Their website gives off that vibe pretty well.

I mean, it’s petty obvious

Our guide was absolutely a blast and she was clearly having a lot of fun with it as we were, again, the only two on the tour.

Only guide photo I got because this was after product sampling…

I also really loved the grounds that the brewery was on, it reminded me of 60s smalltown industrial but with, you know, beer.

Just another hard day at the beer factory.

Here’s a few more shots from throughout the factory.  The process was explained well and thoroughly to me but for the life of me I can’t remember a single thing about it because I’m easily distracted.

When the tour is over they give free reign with their courtyard sign to come up with a potential slogan that they very well may use.  It’s brilliant crowdsourcing and we gave it our best.

I’m not sure if they went with mine, but I found it brilliant if I do say so myself.

I’m still awaiting my residual check in the mail but I’m sure it will be along anytime now.  This was a fun tour surrounded by hilarious people which, as I’m thinking about it, is basically true of everything in New Zealand.
